Well guys good news, it couldn't be easier or more straightforward and I'm going to show you how it's done. The first thing you want to do is hookup your iPod to your computer using the provided cable through one of the USB ports. I've just got a little stand here that makes it easier and nicer on camera doesn't it? Alright now let's go to the iTunes here. You can see that we've got our, that it sees our device right here, here's our iPod and this becomes our tabbed command central for it alright? Now we've had it set here so that iTunes automatically launches when it's connected so it brings up this interface without any worries and we can go to our music management tab right up here at the top. Now if I de-select this, no music will save. Not one song. Your choices from there are all songs and playlists which if you've got enough space and not too much music, well put it all on there, that's what it's for, that's why you got the thing. Well here we can also choose to do just specific things like this and just want this one playlist. It's a good way to organize music, you can have as many playlists and songs can appear on as many playlists as you like and that way you can choose one's that are oh that suit your mood. But for the most part, you want to have all your music in there. So we choose all music and playlists, you can see up here that this computer, that this iPod's already been synced because it's been attached to the computer for a little while so all we're going to do now is because we made a change, hit the apply button, you can see up here it's syncing, do not disconnect and it's doing it's magic. And when it's done, the computer will tell you, the monitor on the iPod will tell you, you take it off and you're ready to go. You've got all your music right there. It's just that easy. iPods and specifically iTunes is a great management system for it, you put it on, it's intuitive. What do you want on there? It asks you for it. Just remember plug it in, go through your tabs, music and there's your interface right there. I'm Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert saying stream you later.
