Hello and many questions from newbie
« on: May 06, 2019, 10:48:30 PM »
Hello everybody,

an iPod touch is my new tool and I would like to move mp3 files from my painfully slow laptop to the ipod. this brought me here.

I never used winamp and downloaded WACUP and now under device my iPod (connected) does not show up? Discover did not do the trick!

Can i move my mp3 files with WACUP and if yes, how?

The skin is very small and I wonder if there is a way to have button a bit bigger?

Aloha

If you just want to move/copy the files over, why not just use Windows File Manager to move them?  Never owned an iPod so can't really help with any specifics concerning it.

ipod touch devices are not supported (and probably never will be, due to apple screwing with things with every new software update)
I made that one skin that one time.

the ipod won't show up as WACUP hasn't touched anything to do with the management of such devices over what Winamp provides & Winamp hasn't supported most of the ipods that were released over the years (was a never ending battle that was halted due to legal ramifications which AOL at the time didn't want). Unless ml_ipod fares better (depends on the model year of ipod but even that's not been touched in years), there's not much a WACUP/Winamp install can do.

p.s. I've removed the other duplicate posts that were made asking this same question in somewhat unrelated threads yesterday.

I don't have an iPod, so I'm not sure if this will work for you or not:

Thank you, there is no way to copy move or paste a mp3 file to ipod with file manager.
