I had an old computer with Windows XP. I transferred all my music, at least I hoped I had to a flash drive. Also, my computer kept giving me error messages that it could no longer sync to my Ipod Touch First Generation. I reformatted my Ipod back to original factory specs on the old computer. I have a new computer with Windows 7. I can't transfer my music from my flash drive to the ITunes Library. I also can't transfer it to my Ipod. I keep getting the message "Songs cannot be added to the Ipod because all of its space has been reserved for data." There's nothing in the Ipod memory. It's clear. What can I do? I want my music back.
The Music part:
Your music (both purchased and ripped from CDs) should be on the old XP computer. You will have to go back to that computer to retreive it.
To locate where they have been saved to:
So you would want to follow that path in your computer for your file location. Once you get to the iTunes media folder;
You should now have a copy of all your music.
The transfer part to your new computer:
I would import the folder so iTunes will do it's sorting magic. Copy the file from your thumb/pen drive to a place on your new computers hard drive. like Music.
iTunes should be importing your music to your new itunes on your new computer. You should also take this time, if you have not already, to Authorize this computer with your iTunes account.
I would hook it up to a different USB port, perform a restore from iTunes and then see if it will sync with your now transfered music.
