To connect an iPod to a PC, simply plug in the USB side of an iPod connection cable into the computer, insert the other end into the iPod, and wait for iTunes to automatically launch. Hook up an iPod to a computer with tips from a digital device specialist in this free video on connecting hardware.
Hey, it's Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert here, and I'm going to show you the procedure for connecting your iPod to your PC. It's easy and straightforward. Here's what you need. You need an iPod connection cable like this. One side's going to be for the iPod; the skinny flat one, and the other one, the USB side's going to be for the computer. Now, we've got our iPod set up here on a little iPod stand. This connector here at the bottom is exactly the same as the one underneath the iPod. As a little bit of a hint you're going to notice that most connectors have a silkscreen printing on one side, well, whether it be the USB symbol or this symbol over here which is the symbol for the iPod connector. That faces up. If you remember that you'll never put it in the wrong way and then have to turn it around again. So, we simply place it in there, the iPod connecting first, and then the USB into the USB port on your computer. That's all it takes, okay. Now, you're sayin' well, I don't have a cradle. Let me show you again without the cradle. We take it off here. I'm going to disconnect it by pulling evenly on both sides; the bottom, looking to make sure it's up, and we simply place it in here and she's ready to go. If you've got iTunes pre-installed in your computer it should load by itself, and you're ready to manage your iPod library, videos, photos, applications, games, anything you got goin' on through the iTunes interface.
