In order for iTunes to sync music to iPod touch it needs to be set up properly. To do this, Plug in iPod to the computer, go to tab under "devices" in iTunes and scroll to options and make sure they are set. Click on the "music" tab at the top of the sync screen and verify "sync music". After you ensure music library is what you want it to be, hit "sync: in the lower right hand corner.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
