2)Scan your computer for songs to add to the library.
3)Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod. The iPod screen should say "Do not disconnect".
4)Open iTunes. Your iPod should appear under Devices in the bar to the left.
5)Follow the instructions for naming your iPod and changing the initial settings if the iPod has not been plugged into a computer before.
6)Buy music from the iTunes music store or import songs off a CD using iTunes.
7)Decide whether you want to sync your iPod
with your iTunes library or manually put songs on your iPod.
(Syncing your iPod will automatically add all of the songs in your library to your iPod. It will also delete any songs from your iPod that are not in your library. Click on your iPod icon and select Sync in the lower right corner.)
8)If you do not want all the songs in your library on your iPod, make a playlist of all the songs you do want, or decide which playlists you want to include on your iPod.
9)Click on your iPod icon.
10)On the top bar, click on the button which says "Music".
11)Make sure the box that says "Sync Music" is checked, then check the box for whether you want your iPod to sync with the entire library or selected playlists. If you click selected playlists, select the playlists you want in the playlists category.

12)Properly disconnect your iPod using the eject button (see Warnings).
to your new songs!
Set up the iPod on the computer you plan to use it on. An iPod set up with a Macintosh will need to have all the songs deleted in order to use it on a Windows operating system. This only needs to be done once if you switch computers, but just to make less hassle, try to use the iPod on only one computer.
Make sure you disconnect the iPod properly to avoid problems or loss of files on your iPod. Click the eject button next to the iPod icon in iTunes, or in the lower, right-hand corner. If you quit iTunes, drag the iPod icon on your desktop to the trash to eject (Mac). Right click on the iPod icon on your desktop on a Windows PC.
Things You'll Need:
- USB connector cable
- Music files or CD's
