Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player

1 Answer

Copying music from CD to PC

I have copied some CDs to my PC in anticipation of copying them to my iPod Shuffle. However, I have enconded at the maximum kbps, which is about 400 kbps. This means that about 100 songs take up 2.2 GB. The ipod Shuffle has a capacity of 1GB which at 128 kbps will take 240 songs. Will I have to re copy my music from CD to PC at the lower kbps, or can I choose to copy to my Shuffle at a lower kbps?

Re: Copying music from CD to PC

If you use the lower 128kbps, this will allow more files to be stored and the loss of quality will not be noticed. If your ipod accepts wma, the file is about the same size per tack but the quality is better than mp3

How to add new mp3 songs

Install iTunes
Before you connect your iPod shuffle to your Mac or PC computer or use it, you must install the latest iTunes software.
2. Connect and Set Up your iPod shuffle Charge your battery by connecting it to an Apple iPod Power Adapter or connect your iPod to a high-power USB port —one that's located directly on your computer—to ensure that your computer charges your iPod battery. (If your computer doesn't seem to recognize your connected iPod , wait about 30 minutes to allow the iPod battery to charge before going further.)
3. Fill your iPod shuffle and iTunes with Music Once you finish the set up, iTunes will open. It will then either:
  • Automatically start filling your iPod with music from your iTunes library (if you set iTunes to automatically update your iPod)
  • Allow you to pick and choose what music, audiobooks, and podcasts to add, if you opted to manually manage music on your iPod.
To manually add content, simply drag any file from your iTunes library or playlist to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list. If you're using iTunes for the very first time, you'll need to add some music to iTunes first, such as songs from your own CDs or music already on your hard drive.
4. Disconnect your iPod shuffle Once you've got your music, audiobooks, and other files on your iPod, you're ready to enjoy it.
  • If you see an “OK to Disconnect” message on your iPod, simply disconnect it from your computer.
  • If you see a “Do Not Disconnect” message, click the eject icon that appears next to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list and then disconnect your iPod from your computer when you see the “OK to Disconnect” message.
  • Disconnecting my iPod shuffle
5. Play your iPod shuffle Now you’re ready to enjoy your iPod.

Music downloaded??

Go to the following website to get a copy of the manual:

Also, iPods work with iTunes, so be sure you use that when copying music from the computer to the Shuffle.

Good luck.

First you need to convert the songs on the CD into mp3 music files then you copy these mp3 files to your ipod.
There are several freeware rip programs on the Internet that rip CD songs into mp3 files.
Do a Google search for these rip programs and install the program on your computer.
You can use Windows Media Player, it can rip music CDs and convert the music files into mp3 music files.

Am I doing this wrong?

Yes, for any Apple product, media has to be synced with iTunes. For Sansa you can just transfer it with your Windows Explorer, but not for iPod. Download iTunes, install, connect your iPod. The driver will be installed automatically. Also eject from iTunes and not from Windows.

You need to download songs in mp3 format as any music you take from a cd will have copyright in the tracks and will not play on your ipod.
