Ipod nano 16gig doesn't seem to have the music on it

Recommended Posts

My bestie asked me to convert a couple of her favourite CDs to MP3, and put them on her ipod (Ipod nano 16 gig) for her.

 

Did this, and downloaded the file to the Ipod.

 

Once I'd done this, I selected play on the ipod, but it said "no music files".

 

I thought "maybe I haven't downloaded the file? (scratches head") so i selected copy to ipod a second time and sent them over.

 

NOW the dratted thing tells me "There's already a file of that name here, do I want to overwrite?"

the files will play perfectly fine on my PC, but not on the ipod.

 

What am I doing wrong?

No, xdbx, MP3, as per how I successfully ripped them to my own ipod.

If it's saying the file already exists but says no music it could possibly be an incorrect file extension. Does the file have ' .MP3 ' at the end?

But you are using iTunes on the PC to do it though right?

No, because I didn't use itunes when I transferred my music to my own Ipod.

Thanks, all for the replies and suggestions.

 

I've "gone to the dark side" And installed Itunes. (grrr) and it appears that my mate's Ipod now has her classics successfully installed.

I was using my windows media player, which converted the album into MP3, before copying to my own Ipod, and to my Samsung phone's MP3 player facility. I had done this successfully previously.

It looks like the iPod may be faulty. It's annoying as heck as it's brand spanking new, too. The tracks I thought had transferred actually had not transferred.

 

The tracks on iTunes have transferred perfectly successfully, to two I PADs, but persistently refuse to transfer to the iPod, despite repeated attempts to carry out the transfer.

 

My friend is going to discuss returning the faulty iPod to the shop it was bought from, and exchanging it for another, which will, hopefully, work.
