View Full Version : First time using Itunes for new Ipod

Merry Xmas all :)

I am lucky enough to have a 40gig Ipod under my Xmas tree :)
I have 70gig of music on my computer so when i connect my Ipod for the first time I only want to select certain cd's. Do I get a chance to select manual transfer of songs to my Ipod when i first connect or will it automatically try to download all. How can I ensure I can go straight to manual transfer rather than auto ?

Thanks for your time and I hope Santa was generous this year,

Yes you can.

When you plug in the iPod for the first time, run the CD. Then this will set it up, and you can choose whether to set it to auto update or manual.

Also, the auto update is very smart if your library is bigger than your iPod - it will add songs according to ratings, how new they are, and how often they are played.
