  1. USB Error: There’s a problem with the drive. Disconnect it and try again.

chances are good that the USB device won’t work.

  1. No Song: There are no files found on the device or drive.

  2. Unsupported Ver: This means that the iPod you’re connecting isn’t supported.

  3. Retry Connection: The connection is bad. Reconnect and try again.

  4. Unplayable File: This means that the file in question is either corrupt or protected with DRM.
