My daughter’s iPod won’t sync correctly with iTunes recently. Playlists don’t appear on the iPod and newly purchased music isn’t going over either. Here are some specifics:
1st gen iPod Nano
iTunes 7.4 on Win XP Pro
Things I’ve done:
Updated iTunes to most recent version.
Restored and updated the Nano.
Nano is set for:
Open iTunes when iPod is connected - checked
Sync only checked songs - checked
Manually manage music - not checked
Enable disk use - not checked
I haven’t tried checking manually manage music and dragging the stuff over yet, but why should I have to do that?
The problem may have started some weeks ago when the computer seemed to fail to recognize her iPod and asked for all the information such as serial number, etc. I think maybe iTunes thinks the playlists are for some other iPod and thus won’t send them over. Any thoughts on how to rectify this problem?
