    Hi applefanslei,

     

    You can easily add music that is already on your computer to iTunes.  This link should help. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1473.  You should not have to use any program but iTunes to manage the music for your iPod.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hey, applefanslei,

    The ipod to pc transfer your classmates suggested migh can transfer musicn from PC to iPod because it has the Export to iTunes mode. But personal think you should follow http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1473. It is free.

    Hi applefanslei,

     

    I did look at the link and iTunes is the only program that you will need to transfer music from your computer to your iPod.

     

    If you don't already have iTunes downloaded onto your computer visit http://apple.com/itunes/download and download iTunes.  It's free and will do everything you need for your iPod.

     

    After iTunes is downloaded and installed, if I remember correctly the iTunes program will ask if you want it to find music that is already on your computer. If this message comes up let iTunes search your computer for music. If it doesn't, after the install is complete and iTunes has launced, click on the "file" dropdown menu, choose either "add file" or "add folder" (if you select add folder you might have to change the file type that is being searched for). Both options will open a new window where you can navigate to where your music is on your computer. Select the music that you want click ok and iTunes will begin importing it. Once that is done, connect your iPod and let it sync.

    Have you solve the problem yet? It should be easily done with the method provided by The Graywolf. If not, go to youtube.com, search for the same topioc, and follow the video steps.

    Hi, applefanslei.

     

    I have met your question before, but actually it could be very easy to copy music from computer to your ipod touch with a third-party program. Maybe you are required to pay for it when you want to get a full version, but i think it is really worth. Or if you only need to put several CD or DVD songs to ipod touch, maybe the free trial version can meet all your demands. Anyway, i hope this method can help you a lots.

    Hi applefanslei,

     

    I have a feeling I'm missing some information here, so let's go ahead and start over. Your original post said that you are trying to put music from a CD on to an iPod Touch.

     

    What generation is your iPod Touch?

    What version of iOS is it running? (settings>general>about)

     

    Your computer -

    Is it a Mac or a PC?

    If it's a Mac, iTunes is already on it

    If it's a PC what operating system are you running? Windows? Unix/Linux? If you are not running windows you cannot use iTunes, it doesn't run on Unix systems unless you are running a virtual Windows setup.

    If you are running Windows, which version (XP, Vista, 7...)

    Is your operating system up to date?

     

    The music -

    Is the music already on your computer?

    If it is, let iTunes find it, it it's not, you just need to put the CD into your CD/DVD drive, open iTunes and let it rip the CD.

     

    After you have all of the music you want on your computer, connect your iPod using the dock connecter-to-USB cable that came with your iPod, and sync your iPod with your computer.

     

    All of the links that you would need if you need to download iTunes have already been posted.

     

    And for the love of technology, don't listen to anybody posting that you need third-party software to put music on your iPod. The only program you need is iTunes and the only program that any iPod will work with is iTunes. The only way that you would be able to use a third-party music management software program with your iPod is if you alter the software on your iPod, which is not something that you want to do.

     

    Hope this helps.

    i gotta say dude,you are pretty professional and patient,i mean this anwer is so specific,anyone who doesn't know how to sync songs to ipod totally should have figured out,like you said,the only tool you need is iTunes,as to the third-party software,maybe it has other uses,but we don't need it on this issue

    I suggest you add them to your iPod via iTunes on your computer. It is really easy and you need not pay any.

     

    Rip the CD onto iTunes and then it will be in your library. Then just sync your iPod with your computer and the songs from the CD will be on your iPod. When you put the CD in, iTunes will appear at the left hand column. Click on it (if you are not automatically taken there) and then click "import CD" which should appear in the bottom right corner. To update the iPod: you only need to plug the iPod into your computer with the USB and it will sync automatically. Often it helps if iTunes is already open.

     

    And you should note that after you successfully add your CD tracks to your iPod, as long as your iPod is set to manual sync mode, you may delete the tracks from iTunes. If your iPod is set to sync automatically, you must leave the CD songs in iTunes or they will be deleted from your iPod the next time you connect it to iTunes.

    TheGraywolf, One of my CD bought from Sony can't be ripped but the others work pretty well with the method you provided. How to solve this?

    Using iTunes, you can add music to your iTunes library from your audio CD collection in  few easy steps.

    1. Open iTunes and insert an audio CD into your computer's CD or DVD drive.
    2. If your computer is connected to the Internet, iTunes will automatically look up information for the CD such as song name, album and artist. This feature will work with most commercially produced audio CDs.
    3. A dialog appears asking if you would like to import the CD. To import all songs from the CD into your iTunes library, simply click Yes. If you don't want to import all songs from the CD, click No, uncheck the checkbox next to the songs you don't want to import, and then click the "Import CD" button in the lower-right corner of the iTunes window.

    Ok here's another way:

    If you cant still put your cd music on your itunes for your ipod

     

    1. Open "Itunes" Click on "Edit" Located on the upper left corner of your "Itunes"

        and then select "Preferences"

     

        From their you can see a "When you insert a CD" option

        You can try to change that option if what "Itunes" will do when you insert your CD's

     

        NOTE: When you sync your ipod, make sure that your ripped cd songs has checked marks

                   because itunes wont sync those unchecked

                  

                   Or when you put it on a "Playlist" make sure you have checked that playlist
