Itunes Syncing

Syncing automatically

If you want iTunes to update your music, videos, or podcasts whenever you connect your device, sync automatically. Whenever iTunes is open and your device is connected using the USB to Dock Connector cable, iTunes will sync. If you are using Wi-Fi syncing, whenever iTunes is open, your iOS device is connected to power, and the device is on the same Wi-Fi network as your computer, itunes will sync.

Syncing manually

If you prefer not to automatically sync music content to your device, you can set up manual syncing. If you want to manually manage your content with more than one computer and your device, see this article.

  1. Connect your device to your computer and open iTunes.
  2. Select your device in the Devices section on the left side of the iTunes window.
  3. In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary.
  4. Select the option to “Manually manage music and videos” or “Manually manage music.” This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. 
    Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting it from your computer. iOS devices do not support “Enable disk use”.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. To manually add music, audiobooks, movies, podcasts, or TV shows, choose one of these categories under Library on the top-left of the iTunes window.
  7. Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items using a Mac or Control-click items using Windows), then drag them onto your device icon under Devices.
  8. To add a playlist, select it from the left side of the iTunes window and drag it onto your device in the same way.
  9. When you are ready to disconnect your iPod, select it under Devices and click the eject icon next to it. You do not need to eject an iOS device before disconnecting it.

Syncing music with Autofill

When the “Manually manage” option is enabled, you can use Autofill to quickly sync audio content from your music library or a selected playlist. Autofill settings allow you to adjust how songs are selected for syncing as well as allocate space for disk use. To use Autofill, make sure your iPod is set to manually manage music using steps 1 through 5 above and then follow the steps below.

  1. Select your device in the Devices section on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Click the disclosure triangle next to the device icon to reveal the contents of the device.
  3. Click Music, under the device.
  4. Select the Music library and review the Autofill settings at the bottom of the main iTunes window.
  5. When you click the Autofill button, iTunes will automatically sync as much music as possible to your device. If the playlist you selected contains more music than your device can hold, Autofill will sync a subset of the music. The iTunes LCD will display the sync progress and notify you when the sync is complete.
  6. Disconnect your device by selecting it under Devices and clicking the eject icon next to it. Then, disconnect the USB cable.
