Synced local files corrupt

Synced local files corrupt

Whenever I try to sync my 120 gb classic, the songs end up corrupt on the iPod, but they aren't corrupt in Spotify.
I tried to use spotify to sync the iPod because iTunes put it in a "recovery loop" or something.

Is there something I'm doing incorrectly or is this a Spotify problem?

Hi, and welcome to the community!

 

What format are these songs?

Although it shouldn't need it; try putting them into iTunes on your PC, right clicking it and creating an AAC version (.m4a) and then adding that file to Spotify desktop and syncing that one. iPods definately play those file types as that it the default Apple type.

All of them are 128 - 320 kbps MP3's, but I have a single album that's AAC.

I just tried syncing it with iTunes after connecting it to my brothers laptop, and it just says "No music"

Hi

For the AACs, try indexing the actual folder where iTunes has its music, sometimes Spotify gets the wrong location.

Also sometimes its good to install Apple Quicktime; sometimes installs missing Codecs required to play AACs 🙂

Have you tried reinstalling Spotify mobile as well? It may have a corrupt file reading software installed in it.

I just figured out that it's a windows 8 problem, not Apple's or Spotifies fault. Thanks for your help and paitence 🙂
