Connecting iPod classic
To connect iPod classic to your computer:
Plug the included iPod Dock Connector to USB Cable into a high-powered USB 2.0 port
on your computer, and then connect the other end to iPod classic.
If you have an iPod Dock, you can connect the cable to a USB 2.0 port on your
computer, connect the other end to the dock, and then put iPod classic in the dock.
iPod classic Basics
Note: The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power to charge
iPod classic. Connect iPod classic to a USB 2.0 port on your computer, unless your
keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port.
By default, iTunes syncs songs on iPod classic automatically when you connect it to
your computer. When iTunes is finished, you can disconnect iPod classic. You can sync
songs while your battery is charging.
If you connect iPod classic to a different computer and it’s set to sync music
automatically, iTunes prompts you before syncing any music. If you click Yes, the songs
and other audio files already on iPod classic will be erased and replaced with songs and
other audio files on the computer iPod classic is connected to. For information about
adding music to iPod classic and using iPod classic with more than one computer, see
Chapter 3, “Listening to Music,” on page 28.
