Hello to all. My first post is to ask for help getting music files to show and play on an 3rd gen iPod I bought today.

Nothing I do gets the files to display on the device so clearly I need help to resolve this. VidMate

I had 30 songs in mp3 format and the general consensus when I Googled for help seemed to be that I needed to use iTunes to convert these files which I have done although they are tagged as m4a files rather than AAC files. Mobdro

Which would be correct and is there anything glaringly obvious that I am not doing that will help me start enjoying music on the iPod?

Many thanks in advance.

The conversion is not needed. All I Pods can play MP3 files as well as AAC files ( m4a extension is for audio music, m4b audio book, m4r ringtone, they had fun with the extensions)

The conversion process you did lowered the quality of the sound, and I would delete the m4a files and use the original mp3 files.

Then import the music to the iPod and have fun.
