My brand new iPod touch 64GB which has no extra applications other then what automatically comes with it, no pictures, in other words nothing extra bar standard issue. All I want is to load all my music from my iTunes, however it will only allow me to load 7,334 songs. iTunes keeps coming up with that I am short 21+gigs to be able to load all my music. None of this makes sense, also once having loaded 7000+songs I only have 88mb left! This makes no sense as 64GB should allow me to load at least 30,000 songs. Please help.


iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 6.0.1

    When you connect the iPod to your computer and look at the colored bargraph of storage uses what does it show for the various categories?

    You can compress the songs to get ore on the iPod. Go to the Summary pane for the iPod in iTunes and check the box that says Convert higher bitrate songs to XX kbps ACC.  128 is a good compression.

    Firstly checking the coloured barograph every single category shows 90% blue and the rest yellow. Then I followed your instruction in regard to checking the box to convert to higher bitrate songs. Now the blue colour is less and it's saying that I have 18.37GB free, but for every category! Like I said I have no pictures no nothing, so something is obviously wrong.

    You need to sync less/media/fewer songs.

    How does that help when there is no media as I keep EMPHASISING apart from music. And according to Apple you should be able to load 30,000+songs on a 64GB iPod not 7,000! So this advice is utterly useless isn't it!!!!

    No Apple says "Up to 30,000" This is totally dependant on the encoding of your music. A typical iTunes 4 minute song is 8mB, at this rate there would be no where near 30,000 possible.

    Apple does advertise this fact, so false advertising. I will go to apple shop instead and get this verified or not!

    Before you go to the Apple store, check the average size of your songs within iTunes on your computer. If they appear to be ~8mB, don't bother going to the store, as it would be a waste of your time.

    16,000 is the most accurate on a 64gb.

    If the songs are approximately 6-8mB each?

    Where did you get the 30,000+ number of songs? The specs for the 5G (or 4G iPod touches) do not spoecify how many songs they can hold. The specs for the 3G iPod say the following. 14,00o in with128 kbps compression

    Capacity

    • 32GB or 64GB flash drive2
    • Holds up to 7,000 or 14,000 songs in 128-Kbps AAC format3
    • Holds up to 40,000 or 90,000 iPod-viewable photos4
    • Holds up to 40 hours or 80 hours of video5
