Chapter 2 Music Features 21
You can set iTunes to download music to your iPod in three ways:
Â Automatically update all songs and playlists: When you connect iPod, it is
automatically updated to match the songs and other items in the iTunes library. Any
other songs on iPod are deleted.
Â Automatically update selected playlists: When you connect iPod, it is automatically
updated to match the songs in playlists you select in iTunes.
Â Manually update iPod: When you connect iPod, you can drag songs and playlists
individually to iPod, and delete songs and playlists individually from iPod. Using this
option, you can download songs from more than one computer without erasing
songs from iPod. When you manage songs yourself, you must manually eject iPod
from iTunes before you can disconnect it.
Updating iPod Automatically
By default, iPod is set to update automatically with all songs and playlists when you
connect it to your computer. This is the simplest way to download music to your iPod.
You just connect iPod to your computer, let it add songs, audiobooks, videos, and other
items automatically, and then disconnect it and go. If you added any songs to iTunes
since the last time you connected iPod, they are downloaded to iPod. If you deleted
songs from iTunes, they are deleted from iPod.
To download songs to iPod:
m Simply connect iPod to your computer. If iPod is set to update automatically, the
Important: The first time you connect iPod to a computer, a message asks if you want
to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and videos are
deleted from iPod and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If
you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod manually without deleting any
of the songs already on iPod.
