How To Transfer Music From Computer To Ipod
Learning how to transfer music from a computer to an iPod is very simple for iPod owners. Most users perform this operation by using iTunes, Apple's free music storage software. While this is an easy way to transfer music to an iPod, users can also move music to their music players by using third-party applications that allow for more flexibility than that offered in iTunes. Here's how to transfer music from your computer to your iPod with and without iTunes.
- Connect the iPod to your computer using the USB cable. If iTunes is set to automatically open when you connect your iPod, the software may begin syncing your music library to your iPod. If this happens, stop the sync process by clicking the small "x".
- Customize iTunes to allow you to manage your music manually. In the "Summary" tab, select the option "Manually manage music and videos". Then select the specific songs you want to move to your iPod and drag them directly to the device. This will transfer the songs you've selected to your iPod. When you're finished, disconnect the iPod from your computer.
- Use a third-party application to move your music to the iPod without iTunes. Some software such as Floola allows you to move music from any computer to your iPod, freeing you from your specific iTunes-authorized computer. Make sure that you only install third-party music software from a trusted source. After installing a third-party music sharing application and connecting your iPod to the computer, simply drag and drop the files you'd like to transfer. Disconnect the iPod when you're finished.
