Re: my ipod won't connect to spotify

Please could you expand on your issue? Why won't it connect to Spotify? In what way won't it connect - local track syncing, the app?

Please expand :)

Re: my ipod won't connect to spotify

How are you guys connecting your iPods? 

 

If its an iPod nano, classic, shuffle or mini you need to connect via the USB cable. 

 

If its an iPod Touch, you need to sync local files using WiFi, full instructions are here

Re: my ipod won't connect to spotify

@Rodneytaylor Are you following the steps in the FAQ (under iphone tab)? Does the ipod show under devices in the desktop client and what actually happens when you try to synch a playlist?

Re: my ipod won't connect to spotify

Following the steps to sync iPod Touch (using the instruction for iPhone) over wifi, my main problem is step 4. My iTouch does NOT appear  under “Devices” in my Spotify desktop client. I have reinstalled Spotify on my computer and iTouch and it still wont recognize the device. I've tried usb connection as well, although its not ment for iTouch, but I tried anyway and nothing happened...
Computer and device are both connected to the same internet network and when starting spotify on my iTouch for a split second I get a message I can't really read well because it goes off really quickly but a pic of a green antenna or something comes on the screen saying something about the local library?

 

Anyone knows how to make the iTouch visible on the Spotify desktop client?

 

Computer is a MacBook OS X 10.9.2 (Mavericks) and I just updated the software of my iTouch to 7.0.6 although I never used spotify on the device before....

Re: my ipod won't connect to spotify

Do you have any security software or firewalls running? You also need to make sure uPnP is enabled on your internet router
