Question ID: 785266
I have an iPod that synchronizes with my Apple notebook computer.

I am presently traveling and I *DO* have my iPod but I do *NOT* have
my Apple computer. I do have, however, a **WINDOWS** laptop that has
iTunes loaded on it with several songs.

Question: Is it possible to use iTunes/Windows to download the songs
from the Windows laptop onto my iPod (that normally synchronizes with
an Apple notebook) *WITHOUT* erasing the existing contents of the
iPod? How would I do this?

Thank you!

Hello chrisasking,

Thank you for your question.

You'll need Itunes for your Windows machine.  Make sure it is the most
up to date version of the software.

Apple ITunes Download

Download and reinstall. Once completed, connect your Ipod to the
Windows machine and you should be able to synchronise your Ipod with
the Itunes software.

An alternative which would be PERFECT for this situation would be this software

IPod Synchronization Software

If you need any additional clarification, let me know and I'll be glad
to assist you.

yes, you can do it.

maybe you need download a iTunes7 for Windows 2000/XP to try it.
it's select the song then download it to your ipod.

if your iPod missing in "My Computer" or in iTunes on Windows,
Tip: Check Device Manager first (right-click on My Computer, choose
Manage, and then select Device Manager). If no devices appear in the
Windows Device Manager, go here.

Before starting, make sure your iPod is fully charged and then toggle
the Hold switch on and off.

Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall , Restore
