Manage your iPod with Songbird

2


Managing your iPod with Songbird can be accomplished without much difficulty. Just follow this easy to use tutorial.

First things first. If you don’t have iTunes installed then you can skip the iTunes configuration steps.

iTunes Configuration:

  1. Plug in your iPod and open iTunes (if it doesn’t auto-launch). Select your iPod and then choose the Settings tab. Uncheck Open iTunes when this iPod is attached and check the box labeled Enable disk use (per the iPod plugin for Songbird page). Move the slider all the way over so that the maximum amount of “Data” is available. This will erase all of the songs currently on your iPod. Click Apply.
  2. Exit out of iTunes

Songbird Configuration:

  • If you don’t already have Songbird installed you can download it from here Get Songbird
  • Download the iPod plugin you can download and install it from here.
  1. When you launch Songbird for the first time, if you’ve previously used your iPod with iTunes, it will ask you if you want to change the library over to Songbird. Click Yes.
  2. If your iPod is connected you should see it listed in the left pane. You can click on it and set your options. My personal preference is to manually manage songs and playlists.
  3. Drag some songs from your library to your iPod

Note: If you have iTunes, the next time you open it and your iPod is connected, it will probably ask if you want to erase the new library and sync with iTunes. Click Cancel if you want to continue using Songbird as your iPod manager.

    nick,

    You can skip over the iTunes config stuff, and jump straight into the songbird config. There is no need to have iTunes installed as per the tutorial.
