Hello, thank you for choosing JustAnswer for your IT needs. I am aware of this issue and have a solution for you to try: Please see below:


Quit iTunes if open, and then navigate to /Volumes » iPod_name » iPod_Control » iTunes (you'll need to have the Finder set to show invisibles). Then trash the corrupt iTunesDB file and reopen iTunes -- your iPod should show up normally, with an empty music library. Open all the F00-F49 (or whatever) folders in /Volumes » iPod_name » iPod_Control » Music, and drag the audio files (not the folders) onto the iPod icon in the iTunes sidebar.

Let me know if this works for you as soon as you are done trying it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
