To use your iPod with iTunes, obviously the first thing you're going to want to do is to connect it. It'll take a second. Over here under devices, your iPod's going to pop up. The first time you do this, you're going to need to name your iPod. In my case, I've just named mine Matt's iPod. Underneath you'll see music, movies, TV shows. You can browse at different types of media that are on your iPod this way. iPods is by default going to automatically sync all your files to your iPod. What this means is that it'll automatically transfer all the files from your library onto your iPod. Every time you plug it in, it's going to change what's on your iPod according to what you've changed in your library. You can disable this if you want more control over what's on your iPod by clicking on summary and going down here and clicking manually manage music and videos. When you do this, you're going to have to obviously, transfer files over to your iPod. To do that, all you have to do is click a track and drag it over here onto your iPod. As you can see, files are transferred rather quickly. You can also transfer play lists this way. Just click and drag it up and it's going to automatically transfer there. When you're done transferring files, you're going to want to click this button to the right of your iPod and that's going to eject your iPod and you can safely remove it. I hope you've learned a lot today about iTunes and happy downloading.
