How to connect an iPod to a computer connection

The iPod is one of the world's most popular MP3 players because of its ease of use. You can simply drag and drop video and audio files from your computer to the device to your collection on-the-go media to expand. The process of establishing this connection with your computer is easy, and maker of the iPod, Apple only requires that the freedom of the media management program, iTunes downloads to begin adding audio and video on your iPod.


1. Identify your hardware. If you use a computer with a USB 2.0 port, then you have it easier because all you have to do is plug in your hardware. If you are using an older computer (usually with an operating system to Windows 2000), then you have a USB 2.0 port, in which case you should consider using a FireWire or USB 1.1. If you do not have FireWire or USB 1.1, you need a card or adapter.

I am computer illiterate so this may be a long one. I have a Sansa Fuze MP3 Player 8gb Silver. Also I already have a Itunes account and library can I drop library into the Mp3 player or is their a website "MP3 Setup for Dummies"


It is my understanding that downloaded iTunes music only works with iPod products. However, you can create your iTunes music into MP3 format in your iTunes library. Your MP3 player should come with the software needed or tell you which application to use (ex. Windows Media Player). After you've created an MP3 version you can import/export into the proper media application then sync to your MP3 player.

Info I found on the web about your MP3 player:

Compatible Formats

The player supports MPEG4 video files and audio files saved in MP3, secure and unsecured WMA, WAV, Audible, and Overdrive file formats.

Simply connect the player to a PC, and start dragging files from your Windows Media Player 10 or 11 applications.
