Cannont transfer podcasts to itouch from itunes

Everything appears to be working great, but it doesn't. When I try to drop and drag podcasts from itune into my itouch, it looks like it transfers, but it doesn't really do it.

I can't see it on the itouch. when I try to copy it again, it won't copy at all because it thinks it is already there.

If i do a complete wipe/reset on the itouch via the itunes screen, everything works fine for about 2 days, then the problem starts all over again. I have to keep doing this continuallly for it to work.

The itouch worked perfectly after I purchased it for about 4 months, then this started happening.

It could be a bad file. If you're resetting your device, and then adding you music and such back, there may be some bad song, or app that is corrupting your device. On my Mp3 player, it would get stuck on a song that wasn't really there, so I found some corrupt goofy Weird Al song, removed it, and it never happened again.

I want to transfer podcasts from iphone to pc

Is there an way in which we could directly transfer podcasts from iPad to computer but not iTunes library? Of course, you could use some 3rd-party iPad data transfer software apps to carry out this task. The best one is Leawo iTransfer, a professional iOS data transfer software app that could help you directly transfer up to 14 types of data and files between iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod), iTunes and computer, podcasts included. That means, you could directly transfer podcasts from iPad to computer without iTunes. Download Leawo iTransfer ' Leawo iTransfer for Mac and install it.

Step 1. Launch the software
Run the software and connect your iPad devices to computer with USB cable. You could see your iPad on the left sidebar.

Step 2. Choose podcasts to transfer from iPad to computer
Go to " iPad > Library > Podcasts" tab. Here you could view all podcasts on your iPad tablet, delete podcasts, and play back podcasts. Choose the one you want to transfer from iPad to computer. You could check all podcasts or just a few podcasts for transferring. After checking podcasts, right click and then choose "Transfer to > My Computer" option.

Step 3. Set output directory
Then, there will pop out a "Transfer" window to let you decide the output directory. On the "Save to folder" box, set an output directory to save the podcasts from iPad on your computer.

Step 4. Transfer iPad notes to PC
After you set output directory, click the "Transfer Now" button to start to transfer podcasts from iPad to computer without iTunes immediately. You then only need to wait for the tranfer to complete.

Can not put music video's on my ipod

1 Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.
i recomend trying the arcsoft media converter 3 for starters and go from there

Video in i pod

Usually ITunes syncs them into a special folder called videos on your Ipod. Your videos should be managed in the same folder as well in ITunes. If you are creating video for your IPod they must follow specifications covered for creating podcasts in order to transfer them.

Here is an FAQ section on about it.

Once they are in the corect format and they are accessable in ITunes you can drag and drop them into your player.

Itouch unlock password

if you do not know your passcode then make sure it is plugged in 2 the cp and make sure the itouch is on the screen where it says enter passcode. then you hold the power and home button at the same time until the itouch completely turns off and then you keep on holding both buttons until the apple logo again. and after that appears, you let go of the power button but you keep holding the home button until the itouch says its connected to itunes. and then you are allowed to access it on itunes. then you need to restore it and it will restore ur hole ipod and there will not be a passcode anymore
