can't transfer music to ipod

Why is it that I'm unable to transfer music files from Spotify to my ipod? I'm okay with iphone, and ipad. But ipod is the problem. I'm getting ready to give up on this Spotify deal.

Re: can't transfer music to ipod

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

What is the issue you are having? and what type and generation of iPod? 

 

Also it is worth noting that you can not transfer music from the online Spotify catalogue to iPods that do not support the spotify application thats nanos, classics and shuffles. The spotify client can only be used to sync local tracks that you own to those devices. 

 

Also all questions about ipod integration can be found here.

Re: can't transfer music to ipod

Re: can't transfer music to ipod

Tracks that you have actually purchased and downloaded (so you own them). This is not part of the spotify premium subscription.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

You just need to install the Spotify application on your Touch and then log in, all your playlists will be there. If you need to sync local tracks from your computer to your Touch, then follow these instructions.

Re: can't transfer music to ipod

Hi!

 

I have read the question below and I think I have kind of a similar issue..........Yesterday I connected my ipod to my spotify account for first time, and of course the program asked if I want to sync to ipod up........and I said YES....the big problem was that ALL my music moved from my ipod to the spotify library, so now I have an empty ipod....and that´s a nightmare!!

 

How can I move it back to my ipod?? Please help me!!!!

 

thank you guys

Re: can't transfer music to ipod

Hi 

I need HELP!!!!! I have a premium spotify account. I created it so that I could use it for work. I had to put together some playlists for a party. I purchased the new 7th generation nano ipod thinking I could sync my the playlists i created on spotify with it but I realized after reading through these forums that you can't do it with the new nano. Well I plugged in my old shuffle and it actually recognized my device and allows me to sync local files but it says the playlists i created for the party are not local. What does that mean. I have a premium account doesn't that mean I can put them on my ipod and listen to them? I don't understand what the point in having a premium account is if you can't do that. Am I doing something wrong? Should I just go out and buy the ipod touch and download the spotify app? PLEASE HELLP ASAP I need to find a solution before work on Wednesday. Thank YOU!
