Assessing the Size of Your iTunes Library and How Much Disk Space Your iPod Has

In order to determine how you are going to manage the music on your iPod, you need to understand how large your music collection is and how much storage space is available on your iPod. This information will determine the way in which you build and maintain your iPod music library.

Determining the Size of Your iTunes Library

You can determine how much storage space you need in order to move your entire music collection in just a few steps. Open iTunes. Choose Library in the Source List. With the Browser open, select All in the Genre or Artist column. The iTunes window will show all the music you have placed in your Library. Look at the Source Information area at the bottom of the iTunes window (see Figure 5.1). Here, you will see the number of songs, the total playing time, and the disk space required to store all the music in your Library. The number you should be most interested in is the disk space required because that is what you use to determine if all your music can fit onto your iPod’s disk.
