I'm sorry to the administrators if this question has already been asked.

I was just wondering how to get the laptop to play songs from the ipod, the problem is that all of the songs are are not able to be clicked, and down the bottom there is a little locked sign.

If anyone has experienced this could they tell me how to be able to play my songs! :rolleyes:

what program are you using to try and play the songs?

If you are using iTunes your iPod should show up where the playlists are and you'll be able to select songs to play from it in there.

I'm using itunes, and it does show up in the playlists bar, but when I click on a songs, it still won't play.

are these songs you downloaded or ones your copied yourself from CD?

Could it be that you've enabled some kind of DRM on the songs when ripping them and that's why they won't play?

To be able to play the music on the iPod through the computer the iPod needs to be set to "manual" mode, if it's set to sync the entire library or specific playlists it will not allow playing of music from the iPod when it's connected.
