iPod and iTunes at a Glance

With your new iPod digital music player, you can take your music collection with you wherever you go.

You use iPod by importing songs from your CD collection to the iTunes music application on your PC, then transferring them to iPod for playing on the go. You can also buy music and audiobooks online using the iTunes Music Store (available in some countries/regions only).

If you are new to iPod or iTunes and want to learn how to get started playing music on iPod quickly, this tutorial is for you.

How to Use the Tutorial

This tutorial has five lessons that teach you how to play music on your new iPod and use some other iPod features. Before starting the lessons, look through this chapter to get a feel for iPod and iTunes. You may want to refer back to this chapter as you go through the tutorial lessons.

To get music on your iPod quickly, follow the directions in Lessons 1 to 3, starting on page 11. In these lessons, you learn how to get music into iTunes, transfer music from iTunes to iPod, and use the iPod controls to play music.

To learn how to use iPod as a hard disk, so you can store other files from your PC on iPod, go through Lesson 4 (see page 26). To learn more advanced ways of transferring and managing your music, go through Lesson 5 (see page 29).

Before You Begin

Before you start, make sure that you complete the following:

Insert the iPod CD into your PC and install iTunes and the iPod software.

To make it easier to complete the lessons, print this document.
