Chapter 5. Of iPods and PCs > Software Alternatives

Software Alternatives

Although the Windows iPod ships with iTunes and used to ship with Musicmatch Jukebox, those two programs aren't your only options for moving songs to your iPod. Three other fine applications originally designed to let Macintosh iPods function with Windows PCs now also work with the Windows iPod. Those utilities are Mediafour's (www.mediafour.com) $30 XPlay 2, Red Chair Software's $25 Anapod Explorer (www.redchairsoftware.com), and Joe Masters' free EphPod (www.ephpod.com).

XPlay 2

Mediafour is known among Mac users primarily for its MacDrive product, which allows Mac volumes to be viewed and manipulated on a PC running Microsoft Windows. In January 2002, the company held a press briefing for a product called XPod, claiming that the product would give Windows users the same kind of access to the iPod that Mac users have.
