What’s the best way to make the most out of your iPod? You fill it up with thousands of songs, of course. Today you’ll learn how to do it as well as how to have unlimited access to all your favorite music.
1. Download iTunes
You cannot download music directly to your iPod. You have to do it through your PC or laptop, with the help of iTunes. What version are you going to download? You need to have the latest one. If you already have iTunes in your PC, you need to update it right now.
2. Ready Your iPod
You also cannot directly connect your iPod to your PC. To do that, you’re going to need a USB cable. Fortunately, it already comes with the kit. Now just in case you’ve lost it, you can buy a new one in Apple store. Make sure you’re getting the cable for your specific iPod.
3. Sync Both
If you have properly synced your iPod to your PC, iTunes will automatically open. If not, you can just double-click on the icon. You will know if it’s connected properly when you can see your iPod’s name under Devices.
By syncing, whatever music you have stored in your library will be transferred to your iPod. But if you have chosen to manually manage your music and videos, you can choose which ones you want to put into your iPod.
Download Music To iPod Touch
Here’s the interesting part: where do you exactly download the iPod music? You have a lot of options. One, you can buy them from Apple. iTunes sells individual songs at $1.99 each. You can visit http://www.apple.com/itunes/, or you can just click on iTunes Store in your iTunes window. On the other hand, if you’re planning cheaper deals, you can get them at Amazon.com’s mp3 downloads.
First these membership websites have the most affordable signup payments so far. For example, HotMP3Download charges you with only less than $13 for one whole year. Moreover, once you have successfully signed up, you can already access all their media files with no limit. You don’t need to pay every time you download. So far, they have over a million songs, movies, TV shows, and other files you can store in your iPod.
Surely, though, a number of you are worried. These websites don’t run any malware or adware that may cause damage to your PC as well as to your device. You can also take advantage of the money-back guarantee good for 60 days if you’re unhappy with it.
Further, you can easily transfer the downloaded music files to your iPod. If you go back to your iTunes, you simply have to click on File and look for Add File to Library. You can then trace the location of the music you wish to add.
