How to Copy Music to a 2nd Generation iPod


Introduced in the early 2000s, the iPod was meant to change personal audio experiences. Unlike tape and CD players, the iPod allows you to load an entire catalog or library of music to your device. From your computer, you can copy thousands of songs to your second generation iPod in just minutes. These songs are loaded from the player's iTunes program, and can be edited and customized from there.

  • Connect your iPod to your computer using the Apple USB cable and allow the iTunes program to load automatically onto your desktop.

  • Locate the music that you have stored on your computer. It can often be found in a default folder titled "Music." Whenever you import a CD, download a song or purchase a song, the files are stored in a folder on your computer.

  • Highlight the songs that you would like to copy to your second generation iPod and drag and drop them onto your main iTunes library homepage. Allow a few seconds for the songs to load into your library.

  • Select "iPod" then "Music" from the left side iTunes main menu and click "Sync" on your "Music" page. This will load your new music to your iPod.

  • Disconnect your iPod from your computer once the iTunes display reads "OK to disconnect," and you will be free to access your new songs on your second generation iPod.
