Please help?  I spent literally days and days syncing my music CD collection to my iPod 4th generation.  I then purchased an Apple Macbook Pro and an iPhone 3S.  They are all synced together.  Now, unless I have wifi access, I cannot play any of my music on my iPhone or iPod.  What is the point of having an iPod if I can't play music on it, eg when travelling on a train.  Thanks

    For some reason you did not sync the music to the devices. You are only streaming them and that reqires wifi


    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Unsync all music and resync

    - Reset all settings      

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up           

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.


    Also, from what computer did you sync the CD music? The MacBook Pro?

    To switch syncing computer you have to:
