Help with iTunes? So frustrated

Well my dad bought a new laptop. Which means I have to load all of the other programs that I had before to this one too.

So I download iTunes and all is good. I plug in my iPod expecting for all of my songs off of it to be loaded onto the empty library. But there's nothing happening! I've been trying since 5:00 to make it work. It's 15 minutes to 9:00 now.

Help please.

You need to import all the songs from your old library into your new iTune's library, before you can re-sync your iPod. You can probably find them on your old computer in your My Music folder or iTunes folder. Copy and paste into the My Music folder on the new computer, then use the Import Folder feature (or something similar) from iTunes to import all the songs.

How do I copy and paste something from one computer into another?

You could probaly burn a CD from your itunes library on your old laptop & then put the CD into the new itunes library & it should transfer them into your new itunes library.You probaly also need to authorize your ipod onto your new itunes library.

That's what I did... the names of the songs all showed up, but when I clicked on them, the file was missing. There's got to be a way... and maybe that's it... I may have not done it right.

Hello, I think we need to be clear here. Who is asking what? It seems there are two people asking slightly different issues here and none are getting on to my little head .

Could we please clear what we're trying to achieve here?

Here is a little guide how to back up your songs
How to back up your media in iTunes

Here is some guide to make the ipod as removable hard drive and then transferring songs.

"To use your iPod as a hard drive:
- Plug your Nano into your desktop and fire up iTunes.
- In the options (this varies depending on iTunes version), select "Enable Disk Use". The iPod will now show as a removable hard drive in My Computer.

Note: Selecting "Manually Manage Songs & Playlists" also enables the iPod to be used this way. I personally have this option on so I don't have to worry about the auto-syncing. This option lets you have total control.

I'm pretty positive moving purchased music is blocked with DRM but you can get around this by burning the tracks to CD, then re-ripping them. It's a pain but this by all accounts is the only way around it."


If none of the above works for you then I would suggest please explain clearly what has happened and what would you like to achieve and am sure everyone will be more then happy to help you .

Regards
