Apple media products such as the iPod Touch require the use of iTunes for managing media. Unfortunately, you cannot plug the iPod into the computer and simply copy media to or from it. You will have to install iTunes and import your media, then sync the iPod.

You can download iTunes here.

Once you have installed iTunes, open the program and connect your iPod. You will see it listed in the left pane. You will find support for iTunes and iPod on Apple's website. They have some very well-written support articles and videos that explain most of what you need to know to get started.
