the last time I opened itunes it proposed me to update my ipod to a newer version, that's what I did.. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER.. now when I connect my ipod to itunes it says that I need to download itunes 7.6 or higher.. so I downloaded the 8th version but when I tried to install it, it says that it doesn't work on my windows version, (windows xp professional...but a copy) NOW I CAN'T ACCESS OR ADD ANYTHING TO MY IPOD with itunes and it's a 80GB! HELP ME PLEASE ANYBODY!!.... I'm looking into forums but I don't find anything that can help me.. and the worse is that I think that it erased my previous itune library content! I got the .itl when I go to my music/itunes/previous itunes libraries but when I open it it's empty, I don't want to transfer everything back to my new library (anyway I can't connect my ipod)
1.is this a version of itunes that will solve my problem of accessing my ipod and that will work on my computer
2.how the hell am I suppose to get back my content in my previous library
Okay, this same exact thing happened to me.
Firstly; when you plug your iPod into your computer, does it show up under deivces?
Secondly; look on the page, if it says that the "manage songs and videos by yourself" thing is checked, uncheck it.
Thirdly; click apply.
It worked for me, hopefully it works for you! *fingers crossed*
thats what happened to me, you need to reboot all your computer to a few days before it happened. so you go on some file on your comp and it tells you from what day you'd like to reboot it from, click a few days before the actual disaster and it should be sorted :)
Same here I alredy had songs on my ipod but then when I downloaded more songs it appeared in my itunes library but when it came time for me to sync it erased all of my songs on my ipod and they were replaced with new ones WHAT TE HELL DO I DO ?
If you have some how erased all your music files from your iTunes folder, then it might be wise to "restore" your computer to an earlyer date before you do anything else. Your "System Restore should restore any files that were there before you upgraded.
Hope this helps.
