    Hello Rachie:

    this should help transfer purchase content:

    HT1848 - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1848?viewlocale=en_US

     

    and this one should explain why it wont transfer over:


    HT1209 - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1209?viewlocale=en_US

     

    these articles should help answer your question, hope it works out for you

    good luck.

    1. Sync the iPod you want to copy songs from iPod to iTunes.

    2. Go to the folder with your backups

    3. sort the folders by date modified to find the one containing your the backup you just made (this step is only necessary if you have multiple backup folders, such as if you've synced more than one phone on that computer)

    4. Make a copy of the backup folder in case anything gets ****ed up

    5. copy the following files from that backup folder to a new folder

    -status.plist

    -manifest.mdbx

    -manifest.mbdb

    -manifest.plist

    -info.plist

    -3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28

    6. Set up the phone you want to transfer texts to as a new phone

    7. make a new backup after it is set up

    8. go to the folder with the new backup created in step 7, delete everything in it leaving an empty folder

    9. Copy the 6 files listed in step 5 to the empty folder from step 8

    10. right click the iPod in iTunes and restore to backup

    11. You should have a fresh phone, set up new but with all of your texts saved

     

    It might give an error message when the restore finishes, but don't panic; take a look at your text messages and they should be there.

    To sync to your iPod go to iTunes>Help>iTunes Help>Sync your iPod....>Sync You Device>Set up Syncing and follow the instructions.

     

    The OP has an iPod Classic which dates back to 2007. Can it not support disk mode?

     

    I don't have a Classic but Disk Mode works on my Nano and it's newer than the Classic by a year or so.

     

    This leads me to believe the iLounge techniques may remain applicable for older, non - iOS devices.

    I had the same problem today when I reset my computer system. I found a program called SharePod that seemed to have helped. And it was free. . U can find it here on the CNET site:  http://download.cnet.com/SharePod/3000-2141_4-10794489.html?tag=mncol;2

    Maaaaan, thank you very much, SharePod is the best software, even better then the well known DiskAid, which annoied me for copying all my music with numbers in front (e.g.: 1-01 Borgore - Decisions ). So thanks a lot man, this software does exactely what is supposed iTunes to do ( to be client friendly). Ur the best Jacob

    Do other songs sync?

    Does the song play in iTunes?

    What is the source and format of the song?

    Content that you purchase in iTunes on one computer can be transferred from iPod nano to an iTunes library on another computer. The other computer must be authorized to play content from your iTunes Store account.          Authorize another computer:      

     

    Open iTunes on the other computer and choose Store > Authorize This Computer., Transfer purchased content to another computer:        

     

    1 Open iTunes on the other computer and choose Store > Authorize This Computer.         

     

    2 Connect iPod nano to the newly authorized computer.         

     

    3 In iTunes, choose File > Transfer Purchases from iPod.

    The ipod is not a backup/storage device.

     

    The sync is one way - computer to ipod.

     

    The exception is itunes purchases: File>Devices>Transfer Purchases

     

    Copy everything from your old computer or your backup copy of your old computer.

    iPod is not a storage device, you are right!

    But the syncing isn't one way. You can use iPod Transfer software to achieve it.

    There is more than one way to deal with most problems, when doubt, try Google.
