The iPod is one of the coolest portable digital media players today. It comes in different forms including the iPod Nano with its video capability, the iPod Touch with its touch screen interface and the iPod Shuffle with its compact design. Of course, there is the iPod Classic, which never runs out of style with its cool features and highly interesting designs. However, you need to have an iTunes media player on your computer for you to transfer, personalize as well as improve the contents of your iPod. Because of this, it is highly important for you to know how to transfer music from iTunes to your iPod.
At some point, especially for beginners, you will come to a point where you have to ask yourself ‘how do I transfer music from iTunes to my iPod?’ For you to accomplish this task, you need three basic materials, namely an internet connection, a computer and an iPod. Once you have these items, you can start right away with this very easy task. Start by attaching your USB 2.0 cable. At one end, connect it to your iPod and then connect the other end to your computer.
Click and start the iTunes application on your computer. In case you have yet to download an iTunes player, get one and download it right away for free. You need an Internet connection for this step. Some iPod comes with an installation CD. You can use this instead especially if you have no connection to the Internet. For easier identification, you must rename your iPod. This will help especially in differentiating it from other iPods and music players that will be connected to your computer.
At the left side of the iTunes interface, the name of your iPod will emerge upon connecting the USB. Once you click it, the contents of your music player will appear in list form. With the help of the interface, you can easily categorize its contents based on various classifications including by artist, by album or by genre. In case you have yet to download any content into your iPod, the list will be empty.
If you have pre-downloaded songs to your iTunes player, you can easily transfer them into your iPod by simply dragging the contents from the iTunes and into your iPod using the simple and easy-to-use iTunes interface. After dragging them into your iPod, the contents will be copied right away. If you wish to copy songs from a CD, import its contents into your iTunes player and then copy them once again into your iPod. There is also an iTunes Store, where you can purchase high quality and crisp sounding songs. Simply click on the iTunes Store option and buy the items that you like, the payment of which can be made through your credit card.
