I just purchased a 160gb iPod Classic on eBay it's from China and looks like an iPod. I hooked it up and sync'd my library with it and it only down loaded 1/3 of the songs. I'm no expert, did I do something wrong or Did I get a phony iPod?

Hello and welcome.

This can happen for several reasons:
-Incompatible version of iTunes
-Failing drive in the iPod
-Incompatible format of songs
-iPod hard drive has been replaced

A few questions:
-Can you upload screenshots of the iPod - back case, About page?
-Which version of OS on iPod - 1.1.1?

We'll see what we can do to help.

Let me ask you a question,I might be over reacting. When I hooked up the iPod, it started downloading the songs. It was showing the progress of the download by showing how many songs had been downloaded. 500 of 3780, 650 of 3780 etc.. I have 9116 songs in my library. When I checked the capacity bar at the bottom of the screen, it said the Audio had 9116 songs. Am I mistaken thinking it did not download the entire library?

No worries.

Which capacity bar in iTunes - the one for the iPod sync? You could always check on the iPod itself. I can't remember where on the older iPod software versions, but I think there is an About and/or Music choice in the menus that should tell you how many songs are on the iPod and how much free space is left. Also, because it is older, it could take a while to sync all 9116 songs.
