General frequently asked questions about iPod.

1. Can I connect iPod to my car stereo? 

Yes. iPod will also sound great on your car stereo.

5. How do I charge iPod?

There are three ways to recharge the built-in battery.

First, use the 6-pin FireWire cable or high-power USB cable that came with iPod and connect it to your computer. [ Created:Note: Only iPod mini will charge directly over USB.]

Second, If you use the 4-pin-to-6-pin FireWire cable or if you don't have access to your computer, you can charge iPod from a standard electrical outlet using the FireWire cable and the included power adapter.

Third, if you have the iPod (with Dock Connector) model or iPod mini, just place iPod into its doc


6. How do I transfer music between my computer and iPod?

iPod offers three ways to transfer music from your computer. You can select one of the following update modes from the iPod Preferences menu in iTunes:Z

Automatically update all songs and playlists. This is the default mode, in which your entire music library, including playlists, is automatically synced to your iPod. If the music library on your computer exceeds the iPod storage capacity, you are prompted to select a different update method.

Automatically update selected playlists only. With this option, iTunes automatically copies the playlists you have selected to iPod when you connect it to the computer.

Manually manage songs and playlists. You can also choose to transfer music to iPod manually. This allows you to drag and drop individual songs and playlists from iTunes to iPod.


7. How does the hard drive feature of iPod work?

iPod can double as a hard drive for your computer. This allows you to transfer files and applications from your computer to the iPod and take them with you wherever you go. iPod is smart enough to keep your data files separate from your music collection so that they will not be accidentally erased when you are updating your music.


8. How long does it take to transfer my music collection to iPod?

Connect iPod to your Mac or PC and all of your songs and playlists are automatically downloaded into iPod. You can download an entire CD's worth of music in 10 seconds or less.

10. If my battery dies, will I lose all of my music in iPod?

No. The iPod stores all of its music on a hard disk. If the battery is drained completely, or even removed, all of the music on the iPod will remain intact. Additionally, you still have all of your music in the iTunes music library on your computer.


11. Is iPod compatible with my computer?

iPod is compatible with both Macintosh computers and PCs.


12. Is it okay to leave the iPod in the dock, or otherwise attached to external power, for extended periods of time?

Yes. The iPod's circuitry will no longer charge the battery once it is determined to be full, even if the iPod is still attached to external power.

More information:

Actually, this can also be a more complicated issue. Lithium ion batteries age faster when stored at full charge. If your usage of the iPod consists almost exclusively of use while plugged in for extended periods of time such as weeks or months, and very limited usage from the battery, the battery is essentially always in a charged state. A fully charged lithium ion battery ages at a faster rate than a lithium ion battery at the optimum storage capacity of approximately 40%. However, keeping an iPod battery near this optimum storage capacity can prove difficult to manage. A lithium ion battery also ages from use, as well as from storage, so the aging effects of constant use of the battery in order to keep the charge closer to 40%, versus constant use while attached to external power, come close to being even.
