    I have apple ipod of 80GB which had 20,000 songs. After downloading the itunes on the new laptop, im unable to transfer the videos and picture from laptop to my ipod. I tried my website, no resolution. Also it seems that my kids mistakely clicked on the button “Resume” on itunes when ipod was connected & due to that it deleted all the songs.

    My itunes won’t work so my friend tried to put music on my ipod through hers but it won’t work either. Is there any other way to put music in my ipod without having to use itunes?

    I’m using Windows 2000 Server and I don’t wanna upgrade it so iTunes naturally does not work… I have been using Mediamonkey and I must say it woks wonders! However I wanted to transfer a DVD to my iPod… I already decrypt it and changed it to .mp4 format but Mediamonkey just plays the sound, not the video. Is there an iTunes alternate that supports video? I have tried Floola and Yamipod both turning out unsuccessful. HELP ME.

    This software works very good. I never knew why Apple made it so you need iTunes to place your songs to and from your iPod. It’s idiotic, but anyway it works great.

  36. You wont find Adiphene in your native pharmacy or some huge
    store like Walmart or Walgreens. Safety is
    also assured when taking Adiphene because of its natural ingredients, which means that serious side
    effects are unlikely to happen if taken as directed.
    There is a section to discuss the biggest loser show, specific diets,
    and much more.

  37. 6 billion in 2012, predicted to reach USD 5 billion by

    is a huge chance that it can rot and release harmful toxins into your body.

    It literally adds just 2 seconds to my beauty routine.
