How iTunes Works
But a portable media player isn't the only way to enjoy iTunes content. There's your Mac OS X or Windows computer, first off -- if you've got a sound card and a set of speakers and you probably do , that's all you need to use iTunes. There's also Apple's popular entry into the smartphone market, the iPhone. Some enterprising hackers have created apps that let you synchronize non-Apple products with iTunes, but these aren't supported by Apple and may not work with every version of iTunes.
Apple's wireless networking hub, AirPort Express, lets you wirelessly stream iTunes music from your computer to your hub-connected home-theater speakers. With this setup, you control playback via your computer, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Podcasts are audio or video tracks, usually of an episodic nature, that you subscribe to.
These are available on a wide range of topics such as news broadcasts, talk radio shows, music, audio and video blogs and games and hobbies. Podcasts and iTunes U are accessed via the iTunes Store, however they are generally available at no cost.
Once you subscribe to a podcast or iTunes U collection, iTunes will automatically download new episodes as they become available, and transfer these to your iPod or iOS device if you have configured it to do so. Once you have imported your media into your iTunes library, you may still need to organize it to make your content easier to find.
Music imported from CD or purchased from legitimate online digital music stores should already have this information correctly filled in. However, often users who have collected music files from a variety of different sources may find that the information contained within the files themselves is inaccurate or incomplete. This information can be cleaned up in iTunes itself simply by selecting a file or group of files and choosing Get Info from the iTunes File menu, which will present a dialog box where you can edit the information for that track or group of tracks.
This feature requires an iTunes Store account, but is free to use. In addition to organizing the tag information within files themselves, it may also be desirable to create playlists within the iTunes application to organize your favorite songs, or select groupings of music to transfer to your device. To create a playlist, simply choose File, New Playlist from within iTunes. You can then add content to the playlist by dragging and dropping it from your main iTunes library window.
The advantage of playlists is that these not only organize your music for listening purposes, but they can also be used as a method for automatically synchronizing only selected content from your iTunes library onto your iPod or iOS device.
This is especially useful when you have a library that is significantly larger than the capacity of your device. For more information on tagging your music tracks, adding album artwork to them, and creating playlists, see our Complete Guide to Album Tagging, Art and Playlists in iTunes.
Again, this is an area where iTunes makes things very simple if you already have an organized iTunes library. Simply connect your iPod or iOS device to your computer. By default, iTunes will detect the new device, and take you through some initial screens to set it up.
From here you can specify a name for your new device and choose what content you want iTunes to automatically sync, if any. Note that you can easily rename your device later simply by double-clicking on it in the iTunes Devices list to edit the name and typing in a new name.
If your iPod or iOS device is large enough to hold your entire iTunes library, this is really the only step. By default iTunes simply tries to transfer everything in your iTunes library onto your iPod, iPhone or iPad.
This works well for many users, and is by far the simplest solution. In this mode, your iTunes music library and your device are essentially mirrored copies of each other, including all of your playlists from your iTunes library.
Any new tracks you add to your iTunes library are added to your device the next time you sync, and any tracks you delete from your library are likewise removed from your device. Information on ratings, last played times, and play counts are transferred from the device back to your iTunes library, as is the saved playback position in any videos, audiobooks or podcasts you have partially played. If your music library is larger than the capacity of your device, iTunes will notify you of this and automatically select content to fill the available free space.
This may be a good way to get up and running quickly, especially if your library is only a little bit larger than your device, but most users will probably prefer a bit more control over what content gets transferred.
Listen to all your favorites
Fortunately, you can easily choose what gets synchronized to your iPod or iOS device either by artist, album or genre or simply by creating playlists and telling iTunes to synchronize those playlists and their content onto your device. This will show you a Summary screen for your device with a list of buttons across the top of the screen showing the different types of content that you can synchronize with your device. Simply select the Music button and you will be shown the options for automatically synchronizing your music content.
From here, you can choose to sync Selected playlists, artists, albums and genres and simply place a checkmark beside each playlist, artist, album or genre that you would like to synchronize with your device. Note also the option to Automatically fill free space with songs. As the name implies, this option will automatically fill any remaining space on your device with a selection of tracks from your music library. In fact, when iTunes detects that your library is larger than the capacity of your device, it selects this option automatically with no further playlists, artists, or genres selected.
You can refine this option further by selecting the specific items you want on your device and leave the Automatically fill free space… option enabled to keep any remaining space filled up with additional content.
Keep in mind that since this is a synchronization process, changing this setting will also remove any content that is no longer selected.
So if you change your setting from Entire music library to Selected playlists, artists, albums and genres then content that is not included in any of those areas that you select is going to be removed from your device during the next synchronization. With automatic synchronization, it is important to understand that you never actually manage the content directly on your device.
Everything You Need to Know About Using iTunes and the iTunes Store
If you want to remove a track from your iPod, you simply remove it from your iTunes library or remove it from the playlist that is syncing with your iPod if you are syncing only selected playlists , and iTunes then removes it from the iPod during the next synchronization.
With automatic sync, there should never be content on your device that is not in your iTunes library; in fact any content removed from your iTunes library is also removed from your device s , as your Apple media devices are an extension of your main library, mirroring whatever items you have selected for synchronization.
There are two significant limitations with automatic synchronization that might be a problem for some users. Firstly, since automatic synchronization mirrors the content of your iTunes library onto your device, it stands to reason that you must actually have an iTunes library on your computer—an option that may not be practical for users with limited disk space.
Secondly, automatic synchronization only works with one iTunes library. In fact, if you connect an iPod set to automatically synchronize with a given iTunes library to another computer running iTunes, it will notify you that your iPod is already associated with another library, and prompt you to erase your iPod if you want to sync it with the new library.
In this mode, your device essentially becomes its own distinct portable library. There is no longer any association between your iTunes library and your device, and you manage content on the device directly through iTunes.
Once in manual mode, you add content to your device simply by dragging it from the iTunes library directly onto your device icon in the Devices listing on the left-hand side of your iTunes window, in much the same way that you would add content to a playlist.
Further, you can view and manage the content on your device directly by clicking on the small triangle that appears to the left of the device icon. This will expand the folders on the device to show the categories of content and playlists stored there. You can then create new playlists, modify the properties of any given track or even delete it from the device completely in the same way as you would in the iTunes library itself. The manual mode setting travels with your device.
Once manual mode is enabled, it will remain enabled on any other iTunes library that you connect your device to. This will allow you to easily manage your content and add new content from more than one computer.
As of iTunes 10 you can now add content manually to an iPod, iPhone or iPad even if it is set to automatic synchronization. Simply drag-and-drop the content onto the device icon as you would in manual mode.
Content that has been manually loaded onto your device will be displayed in a separate section on the Music settings screen below the Genre and Album columns.
Keep in mind that in manual mode, information such as rating, play count and last played time will NOT normally be transferred back to your main iTunes library, but will only be stored on the device itself. This may limit the usefulness of Smart Playlists that rely on this information within your main iTunes library. Note that the one thing you cannot do in manual mode is transfer music from your device back to your computer.
For more information on solutions for copying content from your iPod back to your computer, see our article, Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer.
Further, manual mode only applies to music and video content.
Everything You Need to Know About Using iTunes and the iTunes Store
In manual mode, podcast and iTunes U content can be transferred to your device manually, but the settings on the Podcasts and iTunes U screens will also remain selected and provide automatic synchronization as well unless you specifically disable these settings. Finally, one important caveat: Here are topics that don't fit the categories above, but offer useful information to round out your knowledge of iTunes. Because iTunes is such a complex and powerful program, there's a lot to understand about what can go wrong and how.
Finding how to fix a problem you have can sometimes be a challenge.

The Apps screen for iOS devices works in a similar manner, allowing you to select which apps you want installed on your device and providing an additional option to organize your apps on the iOS home screen. The first time you run iTunes you will be given the option of scanning your home folder for any compatible audio files and importing them into your iTunes library.
