Well, first of all, welcome to the iPodlounge forums!
Secondly, the iPod Mini will NOT play WMA files, so you will have to convert them to MP3/AAC.
To convert the songs, you need iTunes, which you will have got with the iPod Mini on a CD. If you have lost that just download it for free here: http://www.apple.com/itunes
Then, open up iTunes and it should convert the songs automatically. It should bring them in, ask you do you want them imported, and then it SHOULD begin converting them. If not, then you will have to re-download the songs off the CDs, but onto iTunes.
Iv finished putting all my songs into my libary, but there all in one big long list, is there any way to put the list so that you can just see the albums? and also (sorry to keep asking quesions) but when I put all these albums and songs onto my iPod, will it automaticly put them into the correct album? Thanks for any help
First of all, keep asking questions! It's what this forum is for!
Secondly, if you click on 'Browse' in iTunes, with your library opened up, (browse should be in the upper right hand corner), then iTunes will open up a window within the library. Just select 'Albums' from the list, and it will show you all the albums you have.
And yes, when you put all your music onto your iPod, it will automatically arrange the songs into the right albums and genres ect...
Thanks again! Im getting my iPod tomorrow! Is there any way to tell the differance between a 1st gen and a 2nd gen. I want to get the 2nd gen because it has more battery life. But i dont want to get ripped off in the shops? Thank
Ok, I now have my iPod! Iv installed all the software, and its charging. There is a logoon screen telling me to NOT DISCONNECT, put when I go on iTunes , it does not reconize it. Do i have to wait for this sign to go before i can do anything? Thanks
It cant even do that! it says there's an error. A weird thing is, when installing it, it said to connect the iPod to fromat it, but when i connected it, nothing happened, so i just said carry on without doing this (i have formated in manually) Its been charging for about a hour now and im still getting the Do NOT DISSCONNECT sign. Please help!!!
have u set the itunes to load songs on manual if you did then i think this is normal, because this happens to me, so all you do is leave it there until it is done charging and then disconnect it. If it is not on manual then i do not know what is wrong with it
