transfering music to Ipod

1. I downloaded WINAMP 4 days ago then I bought PRO yesterday, do I need to uninstall then reinstall or should it be all set?

2. I can transfer music to my Ipod however my Ipod is just blinking because apparently it doesn't recognize the format???

3. I am manually selecting my music from PLAYLIST EDITOR then selecting SEND TO from right click menu, can't seem to find or get to a "SYNC" screen.

I would really love some really basic help, WINAMP's instructions are not very good and i'm having trouble figuring out the basics. Thanks.

1. you need to enter your serial number in thats all
preferences(ctrl+p)--> winamp pro
you'll only get all the winamp features if you installed the full version of winamp.

2. I don't understand what your talking about. your ipod should say "DO NOT DISCONNECT" when its connected to your computer and if its a new ipod it'll say syncing when your putting songs onto the ipod.

3. sync settings are in preferences (under media library) portables --> your ipod
and theirs a sync button in the media library in your ipod menu.(it'll only show up when your ipod is connected)

Thanks Rocker for helping me get to the pref. screen, it says that Pro features are enabled so I am good there.

I am trying to get my music onto a Nano, not a reg. Ipod, no screen but it's connected properly.

My problem is that I am making a file transfer to my Ipod successfully but I guess it's not a recognizable format because my Ipod won't play it. And to clearify I am selecting SEND TO from the RIGHT CLICK menu under PLAYLIST EDITOR because I have no clue how to get a playlist to the MEDIA LIBRARY to that I can actually select SYNC but that's the smaller of my two problems.

are you using a new widescreen nano or the old first or second generation nano.

you'll need the new winamp 5.5 beta for the new ones.

I'm sorry Rocker, I'm braindead, I'm using the Ipod Shuffle, not the Nano and it's still not working, it won't play/recognize what I send to it.

try the 5.5 beta, I don't know if the new shuffles are compatible with the old winamp anyway.

then it should be just (in the playlist editor or media library) right click --> send to --> ipod

try this (untested for the iPod Shuffle):

- with Winamp closed, open (only this time ) iTunes and connect the iPod

- enable Manually manage music and Enable disk use as in the picture



- close iTunes, open Winamp

- if not working, repeat all after a Restore (ALL DATA ON IPOD WILL BE LOST)
