    Load MP4s from your PC on to an Ipod?

    I figured out that somehow I need to go through Itunes since I have a PC not a mac, but I can't seem to figure out how to take songs from my PC and get them on a playlist for the ipod.

    Anyone know how?

    (Visuals needed here, I'll pos rep anyone who helps me figure it out 5 straight days, that a lotta rep!)

    In iTunes, select "File" then "Add file to library."

    I'd be more than glad to help you.

    However, I first need to find out how to do it myself.

    Be right back...

    Make sure you start with the latest version of itunes. If I haven't used it in awhile, I always download it again.

    Just wanted to add a hint. No rep required.

    Xeno, DO NOT use the latest version of iTunes. The latest versions often have bugs in them and a lot of the changes they make often affect something you don't have or need. For instance, they'll tweak an application for iphone but if you just have an ipod you don't need to upgrade to the latest version of iTunes because those changes will not affect you. From personal experience, before you upgrade to the latest verion of iTunes, ALWAYS go to the iTunes discussions and browse around first to see if the latest version is giving people problems.

    You don't HAVE to have the latest version unless the changes they've made directly affect whatever ipod or player you have. I really like iTunes . . . . until it gives me problems! We've had libraries lost and ipods not able to sync due to automatically upgrading to the latest version.

    We're currently using iTunes version 8.0.2 (released in 6/09). You can find alternate versions of itunes here: Old Version of iTunes Download - OldApps.com

    Download iTunes onto your computer.
    Add songs to your iTunes library.
    Plug in your ipod and it will sync what is in your library onto your ipod.

    Once you download iTunes, and before you sync anything, open it up and click on the Help button at the top. Go through it to find out what iTunes can do and how to do it.

    Oh and you have to make the playlists in iTunes then when you sync, the playlists will go onto your pod.

    plug in the usb cable that comes with your ipod into your computer and usually the sync option will come up if not usually the sync option is in the right corner of your itunes page. YOu also might have to approve your computer to work with your ipod.

    I actually figured out the problem myself, the ipod I found is first generation and is limited to what it can handle.

    I was trying to load MP4 with videos attached, too much for it.

    Everyone who posted gets a rep though, just for the hell of it.

    The first step is to give your ipod to your kid sister and go buy yourself a zune so that you don't have to leap through a single hoop when trying to load mp3s to your mp3 player without using.. :)lol:) itunes.
