Re: Steps to Add/Remove iTunes
Control Panel. Add/Remove programs, Select Itunes. Computer may want to restart.
Reinstall ITunes. Computer may restart.
Go into ITunes. Select add folder. Select your mp3 folder from your H drive. Library will rebuild and for that many songs it will take about 30 minutes to do. Make sure that when you purchase new songs that the folder is mapped to your external hard drive as well. I made that mistake of not doing it and it made a big mess.
Make sure your IPod is set for manual music management.
Click on one of your purchased songs from ITunes and login to your account using your ITunes user id and password. That will enable you to play your purchased musice from ITunes. If you have activated your ITunes account to play on more than 5 computers, you will have to get a hold of tech support to reset your computer count.

Step 1: an itunes account ? b> An iPod is a portable media player that lets users listen to music wherever they are. Before you can listen to songs on the iPod, you must first put music onto the device. If you have been using different MP3 players in the past, adding music to an iPod can be slightly confusing. The reason for this is that iPods are not compatible with Windows Media Player, Real Player or Winamp. By using iTunes, however, you can add music to any iPod.
• Open iTunes. • 2 Add music to iTunes. To do this, click "File." Choose "Add Folder to Library." Then, find the folder on your computer that holds the music you wish to put onto the iPod. Highlight that folder and click "OK." The music will be put into the iTunes Library. • • 3 Plug the iPod into the computer. After a few seconds, you will see the iPod listed under "Devices" on the left-hand side of iTunes. • 4 Click "Music" under the "Library" option on the left-hand side of iTunes. All of the music files in the iTunes Library will then be shown in the middle of iTunes. • 5 Double-click the album that contains the music you want to put onto the iPod. The songs on that album will then be listed. • 6 Highlight the song you want to add to the iPod. • 7 Drag that file over to the name of your iPod located under "Devices" (as mentioned in Step 3). The song will then be placed onto the iPod. Do this for all of the music you want to put onto the iPod. • 8 Click the "All Albums" button at the top of iTunes to get back to the list of albums on the iTunes Library. • 9 Repeat Steps 5-7 until you are done putting music on the iPod. • 10 Disconnect the player when you are done.
<p>Suppose you have more than one iPod that you want your
computer. Or maybe you have two people with the same computer, otherwise
synchronize their iPods. There are a few different ways to go about it. Windows
and Mac OS you can run multiple iPods with USB cables and your music library to
open. But you can use these methods to various media files to synchronize
multiple iPods. <br />
<p>Create separate iTunes libraries <br />
<p>1. Keep the "Options" key while you open iTunes on
your computer, if you use a Mac the same way, hold down the "Shift"
key while you open iTunes and Windows. This will be a new dialog. <br />
<p>2. Click on "Create Library". Name the new library
and save it. iTunes will open this new library you created. <br />
<p>3. Open "Preferences". Do this by selecting
"iTunes" and "Preferences" on a Mac, and "Edit"
Preferences "in Windows. Click the" tab "Advanced. <br />
<p>4. Check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music
folder when adding to library." Click "OK". This will ensure
duplicate files are not included in your new library. <br />
<p>5. Add the files you want to add in your new library, which
are the files you want to go to your second iPod. To do this, drag the files
from your hard drive in iTunes. You can also choose "File" and
"Add to Library". Add to your library until you see the way you want.
<p>6. Connect your iPod to your computer via USB. Sync your
iPod to your iTunes library. Quit iTunes once the synchronization is complete. <br />
<p>7. Repeat step 1 to re-open iTunes. Select "Choose

Click the "+" to create a new user. Connect your iPod to iTunes and
sync with this user. <br />
<p>2. In Windows, click the "Start" button. Go to the
Control Panel. In "User Accounts and Family Safety", select "Add
or Remove User Accounts." Click on "Create a new account."
Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br />
<p>3. Log off your account and to switch between users. This
way you can sync your iPod separately for each user. It can be useful if
multiple users have different tastes in music. They may have their iTunes
libraries and iPods. <br />
<p>Sync iPods with different playlists <br />
<p>1. Open "iTunes". Create multiple playlists to be
synchronized with each of their iPods. For example, you can create a playlist
of workout you just upload to your iPod nano, in turn, allows your entire
library on your iPod touch. <br />

time or simultaneously on a Mac Windows does not support synchronization of

"Music", select "Sync Music." Select "Selected
playlists, artists and genres." <br />
<p>4. Click Apply. This will start the synchronization process.
Repeat this process for the other iPods. <br />
In order to put music onto your iPod, follow these steps:
1. Download iTunes from http://apple.com/itunes. iTunes is used to manage your music library, as well as handle the transfer of music from your computer to the iPod.
2. Install iTunes.
3. Add music to your iTunes library by selecting the 'File' menu at the top of the screen, then clicking 'Add music to library'. Browse your computer for music files and click 'Choose' in the dialog box.
4. Connect your iPod to your computer with the included Dock Connector cable. iTunes will recognize the iPod and walk you through setting it up and transferring music.
Downloading music from your hard-drive to you Ipod is done with the program called Itunes. This program comes with your Ipod purchase or can be downloaded at http://www.apple.com. The software is vital because it not only allows you to purchase from the popular Itunes music service, it's also the only way you can transfer songs onto your Ipod.
So let's look into the Itunes software, and more specifically, the Itunes library that is used to transfer songs from your hard-drive to your Ipod. You'll find it on the left hand panel of the program. Your library contains all your songs, movies, and podcast that you want to transfer over. Through the Itunes library, you'll be able to use their drag-and-drop feature for easy and fast transfer to your Ipod.
Before we move one to the next step, it should be made clear that songs that are downloaded from P2P clients might not show up on the Itunes library. You must add them manually, because you will not be able to transfer any songs until they are integrated into your Itunes library. Doing this is simple. Click on file>add file to library, locate the file you want to add, and press enter to complete the process. There is also the 'add folder to library' function which allows you to transfer a whole folder of songs into the Itunes library. This is quite handy to have if most of your songs are stored in one place on your hard drive.
Alright, let's get back on track here. You know the proper steps in which to keep your Itunes library updated now, and the last step is a breeze. Plug in your Ipod to the USB port in your computer, and you'll notice the new option to add songs from your Itunes library to the Ipod. Click and drag your files into the Ipod transfer screen and then you're done! You're now ready to explore the wonderful world of music without the burden of a large cumbersome computer to haul alongside you!
Note: If you have an iPod shuffle you may need to use the iPod Reset Utility to restore the iPod. If you are not sure which iPod you have, see Apple Support document Identifying iPod models.
If you are using an iPod touch, or iPhone please refer to this article.
If you don't already have itunes on your computer you will need to go to www.apple.com and download the latest version. It is a free download with onscreen instructions that are fairly easy to follow. If you have difficulties with the download you may need to disable or shut off your anti-virus software for the download to complete properly.
I found a helpful article about adding music to itunes on the apple support page for you as well.
ARTICLE NUMBER HT1473 Adding content on your computer to iTunesiTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
From the File menu, choose one of the following choices:
Add to Library
Add File to Library
Add Folder to Library
Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add
If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences. After you have all of your desired music into itunes; connect your ipod and sync it to itunes. If you're unfamiliar with syncing you can go to the same www.apple.com/support and go to http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1351 This article will teach you about the different ways to sync your ipod. Hope all this info was useful to you. CHEERS :)
You need to download iTunes and create a library. Once you have iTunes installed...follow these steps.
Add music to your hard drive by inserting CD's into your computer. When you put in a CD it may ask you to import the music into your library, or you may have to click the button on the lower right that says import music. iTunes generally finds the song titles and CD name by itself, but if the CD is obscure or a local band you may have to type it yourself.
iTunes will automatically add the music you took from the CD to your library.
You can also add music you may already have on your computer by going to File> Add file to library or File> Add folder to library. Once you have added all of the music you want to put on the shuffle, go to step 4.
You can now plug in your iPod. iTunes should recognize the iPod pretty quickly. You will see it under a tab on the left called devices. Once it finds the iPod, you should be able to select music from your library and drag it directly to the Shuffle.
You can click on the iPod's icon in the left side column and do several different things. But mainly I would just use it to see how much space you have left for your music.
It's as easy as that! Comment on this post if you need more help.
If you have itunes loaded on your pc and your are updating the music from itunes to your ipod it should be okay, unless you have moved the folder which contains your music. If you have you will need to open itunes go to file>add folder to library and add your music folder, It will update your library with your music files. Then plug your ipod in and it should automatically update your ipod if you have already created a playlist for it. hope it helps. theres is a new version of itunes out now. If you haven't got it already then download it (its free) and take it from there. You need to add the music to itunes, just go to add folder (or file) to library and choose the path where your music is. Good luck
Go into the program menu (or add/remove hardware in the control panel) and completely uninstall the program. Restart the computer after the uninstall. Simply deleting the folder won't remove the program.
