    iPod app on iPad is not working

    I have problems with my iPad and I am so disappointed because I cannot find any advise, anywhere. I love the iPod app on my iPad. But after several synchronizing with my PC (it was all fine), suddenly I cannot open the iPod - although the Itunes says that syncing is ok!
    The icon just opens and quickly closes - the app shows no live at all.

    What shall I do? I tried the restoration...before restoting the apps iPod looked ok. But when i sync it - the same situation.

    Anyone any ideas?

    iTunes works perfectly if you get all your music through iTunes. iTunes messed up several albums of mine and couldn't get art for a lot of them. The Zune software was much more accurate with organization and was able to recognize a lot more. (Though still not perfect, it split some of my albums as well when it found the same song on more than one album, it would get confused).

    Maybe its because I'm old (ok, not that old). I like to buy real CDs on original media with artwork and such. I also don't listen to any top 40 stuff, so my collection is probably more obscure.

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad.
    Hold the power button at the top down for 3-4 seconds. The slide to power off. Once its down, hold power again and it will boot up.

    I agree. iTunes was good in its day. However, that day is gone. It needs a major overhaul, or just scrap it all together.

    I've had a few glitches with Itunes over the years but, nothing major. I would love to get a mac and use it on that (I'm inching closer to this). The only issue I've had so far is, the last time I connected my Ipod; it didn't remove the songs I wanted it to when I unchecked them and synced.

    When I first got my Ipad, I updated Itunes and then when I connected it, was promted to update to 3.2. I haven't had many issues with the Ipad.

    Awhile ago I found a way to put the Album artwork into my music manually for the music that needed it but, don't remember how I did it.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one that finds itunes to be the most rubbish, obstructive and unneccessarily complicated bit of software to use.

    Mine spends all its time trying to optimise volumes of MP3s on my HDD, I have two copies of every track in the library, but the copies are unavailable, if I try to add albums to the iPad, only half of the album contents go across, putting videos on there is harder than doing a triple twist off a diving board while wearing a sombrero and flippers.

    In a word, it's shite.

    What happened to click & drag? Easy file management?

    My main complaints about it are

    1. Duplicates, it's not smart enough to stop showing duplicates even when you check the option to not show dulpicates. This needs to work and it would be nice if it would filter out the lower bit rate mp3's and only show the highest bit rate version of the duplicate....did that make sense?

    2. Anyone that has ever accidently let itunes organize their library knows that this option should NEVER exist. Man what a mess it makes

    3. Needs to be smart enough to pick up new songs in folders without rescanning or waiting for you to play them.


    that being said, if you are looking for a way to have music in your home and have some sort of touch screen to use throughout the house to contorl said music, itunes + iPad and their remote App is one of the best options to use. There are much more $$$ ways to do what this setup does, and some of them not even close to being as good.
