Set-up an iPod Shuffle
SKILL LEVEL BASIC
Donald Bell: The iPod Shuffle is one of the smallest MP3 players on the planet. There is no screen and no buttons yet compared to last season's iPod Shuffle this little guy is way more complex. If you're brand new to the iPod or at least the iPod Shuffle I am going to walk you through the setup and offer you a few tips.
Like any new iPod the first step is making sure you have the latest version of iTunes running on your computer. It's free and you can get it from cnetdownload.com. Next plug the shuffle into your computers USB port using the included cable. This is a different cable than the standard used with most iPods and much, much smaller. So be careful not to loose it. Once you are connected you'll see iPod setup window where you can make sure the voiceover kit is enabled and decide whether to sync your music automatically. Leaving this box chat it's the quickest way to get up and running, but since the shuffle's capacity is rather limited iTunes are likely to grab a random selection of music from your library instead of the whole collection. If you rather have direct control of what music is added leave the box unchecked.
Next you'll see the iPod shuffle summary window. Here is we can find information on the model and capacity of your shuffle along with the handful of options for how the iPod syncs with your computer. Hardly enough there are more options in this menu then with any other iPod. For the iPod shuffle there are three important options to be aware of. First to enable sound check box will ensure that all songs on the shuffle are just play at a consistent volume.
We usually sneer the idea of iTunes meddling with how loud music is, but if you are using the shuffle for working out or just don't like the idea of messing with the volume controls, sound check comes in handy. On that same note the limit maximum volume slide are down here at the bottom is a great tool, especially if you are worried about a child playing music too loud or if you want to use this for the pair of head phones that don't have apple special volume control clicker.
Finally there is the manually managed music option. Check this if you want direct, drag and drop control over what music can play this gets into the shuffle. For a middle ground between syncing everything and syncing manually, the music tab allows you to automatically sync specific artist playlist and genres. Also note detach a podcast in iTunes University. The shuffle now offers the way to navigate between different media using the clicker remote and voice cues, so you're not just limited to playing music. You can also find an audiobook syncing option hidden in the music tab. Once your settings are done then hit the apply button in the bottom right corner. So there you go some tips on setting up the Apple iPod Shuffle. For cnet.com I am Donald Bell.
