Can't get songs onto ipod from itunes

My wife has windows 8.1 laptop with itunes on it and an ipod nano (4th gen, I think). The laptop doesn't have a CD drive so I ripped some songs from a CD on my pc, copied them onto a usb stick, and imported them into itunes on her laptop. We cannot get them copied onto her ipod. We have synced it 10 times, checked all the settings, rebooted, etc. She's never had any problems syncing songs she's bought from the itunes store. What are we missing?

Yes. I have checked all that stuff. There is no apparent reason why they shouldn't sync.

It would be nice if itunes allowed you to manually copy songs instead of having to deal with the syncing.

Re: Can't get songs onto ipod from itunes

I finally found the hidden setting to allow manual transfers. The thing that annoys me is that while I'm not the target user for itunes (I detest all things Apple), my wife is - a non-techy who just wants something simple to use. This still doesn't explain why the songs won't sync, but at least we got them on the ipod.
