Also, if you have downloaded your albums from the itunes music store they won't work.

If you have imported any CDs from your own collection into iTunes, then you'll have to get the "optional ipod support" download from marketplace

make sure on the windows media connect software that you have added all the folders of where your music is! it's default settings are to just 'share' the fold "My music" and all the other "My..." folders in your My documents folder.

Pm me if you need help!
