Steps to Transfer Music
Once you have located and decided on one of the software choices, you need to install it on your laptop computer or desktop computer. This is a very simple and quick process. Now you will need to connect both the iPods to the machine, using the USB connector that comes with the iPods. Remember that both the iPods need to be connected into the machine at the same time, or the transfer will not take place. Now you must open the interface of the machine to get started. First time users can refer to the instruction manual or the Help menu that comes along with the program.
Next you will need to select the songs that you wish to transfer, then drag and drop them in the box for the second iPod. You can also select the songs that need to be transferred, and then click on the Send To option to transfer them to the second iPod. This is something that any computer user can perform with ease.
So there you have it. As you can see, this is as simple as mentioned. There are no hidden charges involved anywhere, and it offers you this great feature of exchanging music.
