Why can't iRepo find my iPod?
iRepo requires your iPod to be set for manually music management (this does not apply to iPad, iPhone or iPod touch devices). To set this, please follow these steps:
- Connect iPod to your computer using either your cable or Dock.
- Open iTunes.
- When/if iTunes asks you if you want to auto update, click the "Cancel" button.
- Select iPod in the Source list in iTunes.
- In iTunes, select the option to "Manually manage music".
- Click the "Apply" button.
If the above doesn't resolve the iPod detection issue, please try right-clicking on the iRepo icon and select "Run as Administrator" from the popup menu.

Is iRepo compatible with my iPod?
iRepo works with all iPods as well as the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
Why does iRepo report error 80080005 and none of my songs get transferred to iTunes?
This error can indicate a number of things. First of all, be sure you don't have any dialog windows open in iTunes. iTunes must be sitting at the main window with no dialogs open.
If that doesn't help, this error can indicate that there is a problem with the iTunes installation on this computer. Reinstall iTunes and then try transferring just one or two songs with iRepo. If that goes good, you can then go ahead and transfer all your songs.
If that does not help, try right-clicking on the iRepo icon and select "Run as Administrator" and see if that works.
Why am I getting message "iRepo has stopped working"?
This is due to a Windows Vista security issue. This has been resolved with release 2.1. Please update to the latest version to resolve the issue on your system.
Why does iRepo start transferring some songs ok then starts having problems with the remaining songs?
This is caused by the same issue as the question below. Please read the answer to that question.
Why, when I first connect an iPod, iRepo sees the songs but after telling iTunes not to sync with the iPod, the songs in iRepo disappear?

- When/if iTunes asks you if you want to auto update, click the "Cancel" button
- Select the iPod in the Source list in iTunes
- In iTunes, check the "Manually manage music" checkbox and then click the "Apply" button.
- Wait a few moments and the iPod songs should now appear in iRepo
