I am a huge music fun and I like Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Eminem, Rihanna, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, The Green Day, James Blunt, just to name a few. Thanks to iPod touch, I could now listen to my favorite songs everywhere. No exaggeration, I have played all the songs in my iPod for a thousand times! Today I will share with you how to download free music to iPod touch as well as how to transfer iPod touch music to PC.
iTunes is the tool we need in order to download music to iPad touch. Thus download iTunes to your computer first and we need 5 steps to download iPod music. You can easily download free iPod music if you want.
Open iTunes and go to "File" and then select "Add Folder to Library". Import all the music folders on your computer using this method. You can also add music by purchasing songs from the iTunes music store..
Connect your device to your computer using your USB cable.
You can import your entire catalog of music if your device has the required capacity. If not, then make a playlist with a smaller selection of songs that will fit on your iPod or iPhone.
Now it's time to sync your device, click on the "iPod/iPhone" icon in the left hand column of iTunes. Next click "Music" in the top bar. Make sure the "Sync Music" box is checked. If you're syncing your whole library then check "Entire music library." If you're just syncing a playlist then check "Selected playlists, artists, and genres" and select the playlist you made for your iPod or iPhone. Now select the "Sync".
Once the sync is complete select the eject button next to the iPod/iPhone icon. Your device is now ready to listen to.
By transferring iPod music to PC, you could still enjoy your iPod songs even if they are deleted from your iPod touch. Here's how.
Connect your iPod then run iTunes. If iTunes loads when you plug in your iPod, and is set to automatically sync your entire library (erasing files from your iPod), you MUST stop it.
It should show up on "My Computer" as a "Portable Device"; right click and choose "Open"
By default, Windows hides hidden files and folders (thus the name). Go to Folder Options (Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization), and on the View tab, check "Show Hidden Files and Folders"
The music is stored (in current iPods) in the directory "\iPod_Control\Music". This may have a lot of odd looking stuff in it — it doesn't matter; select everything and drag and drop them to a folder on your hard drive.
Go into iTunes Preferences, and under the Advanced tab, check "Keep iTunes Music Folder Organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Music Folder when adding to the library" (settings move around a bit between versions of iTunes, but these settings will be there somewhere).
iPod touch is now more of a music player, it could be used as a series of devices such as a camera to take photos, a book to take notes, a small pad for surfing the internet. To keep our iPod data safe, we now have some tools to recover data directly from iPod for us, for example, iPod Data Recovery. It's really nice to have such utility in case of an emergency.comments powered by Disqus
