2. Go to the "WMV" file and click it. Click the "Add" button to copy the WMV file into your iTunes library.


3. Click the entry to WMV in the iTunes library and click the Advanced tab. Click the "Create iPod Version 'from the drop-down with a copy of the WMV MP4 file.


4. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable for iPod.


5. Click the converted file and drag it to your iPod in "Devices" entry in the list on the left side of the iTunes interface. iTunes will automatically load the file on your iPod.
