I have connected my ipod and it works to a certain extent, but there is a problem. When I say or select Artist I can only see 20 artist, the manual says something about only having up to 20 nesting folders ?

The question is how do I structure my ipod so that I can see all the music and names on the display. I have about 2500 tunes on the ipod. When I downloaded I let itunes manage the files. On my ipod I select the Artist, then the Album and away it goes.

Can anyone help

Thanks

Chris

You need to try and change your I-tunes song to MP3

I'm using exactly the same set up (B&M and iPod Classic) and don't have to do any structuring of my iPod to be able to see all of the artists.

So long as your music files are in mp3 format (or another supported format) then you should be able to see the artist.

I'd guess that the reason you can't see certain artists listed is because their tracks are still in AAC format.

Yep, same here.

Using Ipod Classic and 22Gb, approx 2500 tracks and I can see them all through B & M.

I can only echo the other posts and check the file format is MP3.

I have the same problem. I know that songs need to be in .mpl format, but how do I make that happen? Am I right in thinking stuff loaded via itunes is in .itl files? So can they be converted?

iTunes will use what ever format and bit rate you choose, except tracks downloaded from the itunes store which will be in AAC and cannot be converted.

There is a facility within iTunes to convert your tracks to mp3, but this will only work on the stuff you have downloaded from CD.

The stuff you have purchased from the iTunes store will not be converted because it is protected but there are ways round this too. There is free software you can download from the internet to do the conversion, or you can burn the tracks to CD and then download them again in mp3 format.
