How to add songs to Ipod

This is a tip explaining exactly how to add songs to your Ipod.

Firstly, you need to have Itunes installed on your computer. You can download Itunes for free from the following Website. It is always best to use the most updated version of this software.

http://www.apple.com/downloads/

Once you have downloaded Itunes, and installed it, we can continue.

Ok, if you already have MP3 files on your computer, and just want to add this songs to your Ipod, we first need to import all these files to Itunes.Here is how we do this.

To import songs in MP3 format which is already on your computer:

  • Open the Itunes software you installed.
  • From the iTunes File Menu click "Add to Library".
  • Now you need to browse to the folder where the music is located and select it.
  • The files will now automatically be imported to Itunes.
After the installation of Itunes, you need to plug you Ipod into your computer USB port using the connector cable which came with your ipod.
This is the how the USB port on your computer looks like.



This is what the connector cable looks like.



When you have plugged in your Ipod to the computer, Itunes will automatically open.

Now you will be able to see your Music Library(On the left), as well as your Ipod(On the right)

Al you need to do now is to drag the songs you want to copy to your Ipod into the ipod window on the right.

Charge your ipod after you have copied the songs, and start listening.

Kind regards
Andrea

Dear youth87,
In order for you to be able to upload songs from computer to iPod, you will need to download iTunes from here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
Download iTunes, then install it. Open up iTunes, and from inside iTunes, go to: Edit/Preferences/Advanced. In here under iTunes Media folder location, choose the location where you have downloaded the songs by clicking the Change button. After this, all the music that you have on that folder, and all the music that you will add to that folder later, will appear on the iTunes library pane (the one in the right side). After you have completed this process, connect your iPod to you computer. Now your iPod should appear on the left side pane (the grey pane). In order to add music to you iPod, just drag and drop the music from the library pane, to your iPod on the left side pane. When you do this, you should see a grey circle close to the iPod. This circle means that music is being copied in your iPod. Continue this process until you have all the music you want in your iPod.
Hope this helps,

You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at www.apple.com/itunes.

From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.

Hope this helped,

Hi! You want to use itunes website to buy songs and games or you want to use itunes for syncronizing your songs in ipod. If you want to add songs and other stuff to your ipod then download the itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and install it. After installing the ipod connect the ipod with the computer.

After connecting the ipod with the PC it will automatically detect your ipod. And then add your favourite songs to your ipod by dragging them into the library or by importing them into library from file tab.
