Apple ipod classic

Hey, does anyone out there own an ipod classic, I think Gen4.
I am having trouble transferring new albums, which I have downloaded from itunes, to the ipod classic. For some reason, when I click and try & drag them over to my ipod, the blue circle around the ipod doesn't show up, and I can't drop them.
Also, I've noticed that the files I am trying to copy over to my ipod are .MPEG-4 files, & looking through my ipod , all the extension names are .M4A, so I have tried a 3rd party software to copy them, but with no success, as the newer files are .MPEG-4, they won't copy over.
The ipod classic is getting on now, I know, but I am sure there are still people who use them still.
If anyone still has a ipod classic, and can direct me in some way how to load my recent albums from itunes, onto my ipod. that would be much appreciated!. thx

Use handbrake to convert them to a acceptable mp4 file type, the classic will only play some type of mp4 files. Handbrake as a preset that will convert correctly.

Wait are we talking about audio or video files here? .MPEG-4 and .mp4 are both video formats.
