Long gone are the days we used to experience a lot of trouble trying to download music for the iPod. Today we have a number of new connection types which include the USB cable and even fireWire that enables you to easily keep your music up to date and download the latest music without any hassles. Apple gives you their website that is loaded with a wide range of music that a customer can select from. This music is of a wide variety and from all genres.
The iTunes stores for iPods brags of having music that is over three and a half million songs from which their clients can choose. They also have podcasts, Movies, audio books, TV shows and even games for the iPod. If you are the kind of individual yearning for more than just having music downloads, then consider the iTunes stores. Other than featuring the major music labels, the iTunes store also stocks music from independent artists for your iPod. After buying a song from the store, the ownership is transferred and the song belongs to you and you can play the song as many times as you wish to. The store has no option for subscription; all you need to do is to pay for what you have downloaded or for the usage unlike having to pay a flat rate fee that comes with an additional amount if you happen to exceed the set limit. The option for subscription can be cost effective especially for individuals who only downloaded a certain number of songs consistently, but one needs to keep an eye on the downloads you are making to ensure that you do not pass the limit and end up paying a fine for it.
With the iTunes store, one is assured of a handy download manager for your iPod that enables you to make and set the order prior to downloading. This saves you from setting up a play list on your iPod after you are through with your download. You just need to scroll and select the category of music you want, you can select by artist or by category after which you then tap on the download tab. After downloading, connect your iPod to your PC which can be done by using the USB cable or a FireWire connection. In most cases, the iPod continues to charge as you have synchronized it with the computer so no need to worry that your battery might go low, you can select the music manually or randomly using the shuffle button.
