My Spotify songs wont sync to my Ipod

It put like 15 songs out of 400 on my Ipod, and it says that it can only sync local files. I don't know how to get all of my Spotify songs onto my Ipod.

Heya!

You can only sync streaming songs with an iPod touch that can actually use the Spotify app on it.

If you got another iPod you can only sync local files on it. You can read about it here.

It definitely does. First I discoverd I cannot make MP3's of my lists, now I find out that synchronizing my playlists is also impossible.

 

That leaves me with a carload of music I can only listen to on my laptop.

There goes my Premium account. Byebye to all!

So when the Spotify add for the Premium account says "Listen on all your devices " they are really stretching the truth!!

Maybe it should say Listen on all of your "supported" devices, I have an old mp3 player I would love to be able to hack Spotify to run on!

No, only devices on which a spotify app can be installed are capable of playing spotify content. See this post for more information and please fix your caps lock key.
