Chapter 2. Managing Music with iTunes

Chapter 2. Managing Music with iTunes

A high-performance automobile is little more than an interesting amalgam of metal and plastic if it's missing tires and fuel. Sure, given the proper slope (and, perhaps, a helpful tailwind), that car is capable of movement, but the resulting journey leaves much to be desired. So, too, the iPod is a less-capable music-making vehicle without Apple's music player/encoder, iTunes. The two—like coffee and cream, dill and pickle, and Fred and Ginger—were simply meant for each other.

This chapter isn't intended to take the place of a full-featured guide to iTunes, such as Peachpit Press' iTunes 4 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide. But to best understand what makes the iPod's world turn, you must be familiar with how it and iTunes work together to move music (and pictures, in the case of the iPod Photo) on and off your iPod. In the following pages, you'll learn just that.
