How to Put Music On an Ipod Touch


An iPod Touch can hold thousands of songs in its music library. There are two ways to add music to the iPod. You can buy and download songs directly from the iTunes app on the iPhone or you can sync the mobile device with iTunes on your computer and transfer music you already own.

Using iTunes App on iPod Touch

  • Turn on the iPod Touch when you have a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet and tap the "iTunes" icon on the home screen.

  • Browse the New Releases section or click the "Top Tens" or "Genres" buttons at the top of the screen to expand your search for music. If you seek a specific song or artist, tap the "Search" button at the bottom of the screen to open a search box. Type in the information and view the results.

  • Click the art or name of any song that interests you to listen to a preview and read reviews. When you decide on a song you want to download to your iPod Touch, click the button that contains the price or the word "Free" and click "Install."

  • Enter your Apple ID when prompted. If you don't have a free Apple ID, the software walks you through the steps to set one up.

  • Wait as the song downloads. Tap the "Music" app on the iPod Touch to locate and play the song.

Using iTunes App on the Computer

  • Launch iTunes on your computer. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer using the USB connector cable that came with the device.

  • Look under "Devices" in the left navigation panel of iTunes and click on the name of the iPod. Click the "Music" tab at the top of the main iTunes screen.

  • Place a check mark next to "Sync Music" and another check mark next to "Entire Music Library" to copy all the music in the iTunes music library on the computer to the iPod Touch. If you prefer, select only specific albums and songs for transfer.

  • Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner of the screen, followed by "Sync" to transfer the music.
