    Someone told me to move all my music from various places on my HD to my iTunes library. Where is this?

    I go here C:\Documents and Settings\Plague\My Documents\My Music\iTunes

    I placed like 4 mp3 files in that folder, went to iTunes, connected my iPod. Went to library/music on the top left and those 4 files are not showing. Why?

    Tell me the proper way to put music on my ipod


    Please and thank you!

    Drag the music into iTunes itself. There, Music is there.

    I have a Touch and having problems with album art. I have been doing it the way you said, but I was told to try this. I have never used playlists or libraries, just drag.

    Wait what? What album art problems? If you want to sync music onto your device, just drag the music into iTunes and sync. You can also --- You know what, I know a better way for you to learn. Through Video Tutorials:

    Full black box. No music note on portrait view. Landscape view shows the image if I am not on it. I get to it and it's all black. I play album and totally black. Happening on both gen iPods for me. I use them both on two sep PCs. My 1st gen worked fine using an older version of iTunes, but once I upgraded....same issues on both devices. Itunes is the problem.

    If the artwork shows up IN iTunes but in the iPod a black box just shows up.
    Restore the iPod in iTunes, the same thing happened to me yesterday but i fixed it.
