I manually add shows and movies to my iPod, but now that doesn't seem to work. I haven't changed the settings.

    Why can't you add videos or TV Shows anymore?  What happens when you try?

    Nothing happens. I can drag videos from the iTunes library, but nothing is added to my iPod. I have videos that a added months ago already in my iPod. The only thing that changed during the time in between was updating iTunes and I have more than enough memory in my iPod.

    When you drag a video over to your iPod, does it show a green plus sign or perhaps a red circle with a slash through it?

    There's no green or red plus sign showing up.

    It sounds like you are trying to manually manage your iPod's contents.  If that is the case, have you double checked to make sure the "Manually manage music and videos" option is still ticked from under your iPod's Summary tab in iTunes?  See here for more information on configuring manual management, etc.

    I assume the video plays okay in iTunes and was download from the iTunes Store?

    I do manually add videos to my iPod. I've had it set to manual since I got it and I haven't changed it. It's still set to manual, but for some reason the videos can't be added.

     

    And the videos are okay in iTunes. They're from the iTunes store and some are from my camera, but neither one is added.

    Are you 100% positive the manual sync setting is in place? Can you successfully add new tracks to the iPod by dragging some onto your iPod under Devices in iTunes?

     

    Try dragging a video over onto your iPod and let it sit over the top of your iPod before letting go of the clicker and see if you get any sort of indication such as a Plus sign or Red circle appear.
