Now that you have that shiny new iPod, it’s time to download songs onto it! So, how do you download songs onto an iPod? It’s easy if you are familiar with iTunes, so that’s where you should begin.
When you open up the iTunes software, you will see a multitude of options. By clicking on iTunes Store, you will find more songs than you can imagine – and a little bit of everything download lagu. There are music videos, games, live version of popular songs, new releases, episodes of your favorite television shows, movie trailers, behind-the-scenes footage, full-length movies, live concert recordings, and more.
You can choose any of these things to download to your iTunes library. The purchase prices vary, and can be substantial if you are purchasing something that is rather lengthy, such as a feature film. Most songs are only 99 cents, however, and you can often find songs for free. There are applications for free too – in fact, the home page of the Store lists the most popular free items, and offers links for you to download them for yourself as well.
When you have downloaded what you want to put on your iPod, you can either put it directly on the device, or you can create a playlist. A playlist is a good idea if you have a great deal of music and want to organize it quickly, making it easier to find what you want to hear when you want to hear it. The icons on the bottom of the iTunes library screen will allow you to create a playlist.
When you’re done creating the playlist or making a list of the things you want to download to your iPod, it’s time to plug in your device. If the battery isn’t fully charged, it might take a few moments before the computer recognizes the iPod. Be patient – it will pop up soon! When the iPod icon pops up on your iTunes library menu on the left-hand side, you can begin to download your playlists and other downloads.
If your iPod is set to automatically sync with iTunes, it will begin immediately, and will download everything you just purchased. It will also upload anything on the iPod that iTunes doesn’t have in the library – for instance, if you uploaded a friend’s playlist from their computer, you can now put it on your own iTunes list. If you don’t want the automatic sync to run and want to choose your own downloads, you can click on “Manage Music Manually” under the Summary Tab, and you will be able to choose what you put on your iPod and what you leave on iTunes for later.
