    firstly, just go to the folder where the downloaded songs are, then put the cursor over the song, click, and drag it into itunes ,holding the mouse button the whole time

    second, try a restore, and if that doesnt work, your button could be broken, and you can take it to apple for repairs as long as you bought it less than a year ago

    First off, stealing music is terrible. Especially if you use a cavemen-like method like Limewire.

    1)Open up itunes and on the left you'll see your device(Ipod or iPhone). Now find where your music is located, if it's all in one folder then it will make life easier. Just click on the folder and hold the button and drag it to iTunes and put the pointer over the device and let go of the mouse. You will notice on the ipod that it's syncing.

    2)I don't understand what you're saying. The button at the bottom(Home Button) is not working? All that button is supposed to do is take you to the Ipod's main screen and nothing else.

    if its on your computer in the itunes, you wont lose it.
    and you can redownload all the songs for free, or recover them off the ipod meesa thinking

    plug it into the computer and when itunes comes up your ipod ill be on the left about an inch or so below the itunes store and downloads buttons, i think
    it should be under connected devices

    then you just go to restore, which is the second button in the middle section of the page that comes up
