Part II: iPod: The Software > iTunes for Macintosh and Windows

4. iTunes for Macintosh and Windows

Apple's iTunes software—the ultimate jukebox program for Macintosh and Windows—supplies the software yin to the hardware yang of the iPod. It plays and organizes your music, copies music from your CD collection onto your hard drive, and burns new CDs with music in a sequence you like. It's also an online music store where you can buy a favorite song, legally, for a buck, with just a few mouse clicks.


Note:

If you're on Windows, you can still use MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, which first came with the iPod in 2002—but you won't be able to use the iTunes Music Store. If you install iTunes after you've installed MusicMatch Jukebox, be warned that the iPod will switch its syncing allegiance to Apple's software (returning to the mother ship, as it were).

If you try iTunes but want to go back, see Section 5.1 for steps on how to get MusicMatch and the iPod speaking to each other again.
