Hey Smurf, you would probably lose it if you sync both machines. but the way to do it is connect the ipod, go into my computer and into the removeable drive for the ipod go into the music directory and copy all the music you want to add to the ipod into that folder then go to other pc and do the same should work ok.. All the best John

Delete music files from ipod touch

Bearshare is a program that can be used to download and listen to audio files on your computer. You can also use Bearshare to put music directly onto your iPod or portable music player. Using Bearshare to add songs to your iPod will save you the time of having to search for your downloaded files using iTunes. By using Bearshare, you can download a new song and place that song directly onto your iPod without having to open another software program.

Download the latest version of Bearshare (see Below). Install Bearshare onto your computer. When you do, Bearshare will search for audio files that are already on your computer. The program will then add those files to the "My Library" portion of Bearshare. Open Bearshare. Click the "iPod/Mp3 Player" option on the left side of Bearshare. Plug your iPod into your computer. A dialog box will open on your screen. Click "OK." The "iPod/Mp3 Player" option will be replaced with the name of your iPod. Click the "My Library" option in the top left corner of Bearshare. Any songs that you added when installing Bearshare or that you have downloaded with Bearshare will appear on the screen. Click on the song and then drag the file over to the name of your iPod found on the left side of the screen. Doing so will add that song to your iPod. Continue doing this until you are finished adding songs to your iPod. Disconnect the iPod and close Bearshare.

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.

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

Itunes on my laptop will not sync to my ipod and has wiped all my music from ipod.

First of all when you sync your ipod with another computer all of your songs, videos and etc will erase by itunes application.Example the first sync was on your desktop using itunes and it was successfully transferred the songs and videos. But you want to add songs from your laptop, so copy the songs to your usb flash drive or external hard drive then paste it to your desktop computer. Then plug your ipod to your desktop computer and run the itunes application then add songs you want to transfer,by syncing or copying the song to your ipod your old songs will not be erase. Have a nice day

I cant upload music to my iphone 4 pls help

You can only upload music to your iPhone via iTunes.
First, open iTunes, go to File menu and click on "Add file to library", find the song you want to add and click "ok"
Now the song will show in iTunes. Do this for all the songs you want on your iPhone.
Once you are done, connect your iPhone to your computer. iTunes will recognize your iPhone. Click on iPhone, on the left hand side of iTunes. On the main screen you'll have tabs for your iPhone such as "Information" "Music" "Applications". Click on the Music tab.
Select "Syncronize all music" in the Music tab.
Now on the right hand side in iTunes, you'll see a button "Apply"
Wait for your iPhone to syncronize with your iTunes.

Use iTunes. Connect your iPod to computer, open iTunes, click on the icon of the iPod, click on the music tab, and select the folder in which your music is stored - iTunes will add every song in that folder, so make sure you have enough space for all your music. BTW, Apple's website has full versions of the user manuals for every variety of iPod.

How can I take music off and put new music on

The music that is on any mp3 player is a copy of what you have stored in the library of your computer music software so if you want to delete a song from your mp3 player you have to delete it on the computer then syncronise. This is the same if you want new music, you have to add to your library first. You cannot delete music using any of the controls on the actual mp3 player.
