How to Put songs on your iPod without using iTunes

In this tutorial, we learn how to put songs on your iPod without using iTunes. First, plug your iPod into your computer with the USB cable. From here, go to 'my computer' and then click on your iPod. Then, go to tools, folder options, view tabs, then select 'show hidden files'. After this, you will see 'ipod_control' folder, click on this and open it.

Once you have dragged all your music into this, you will be able to listen to your music on your iPods without using iTunes, enjoy!


hello.....when i plugged my ipod nano says to format i format it.but when i fomat it and sent some data it doesn't read ...then i found this site.... now i dont have the ipodcontrol folder because i had to format it???what now?

Im sorry to tell you this JOHN BOLLA JR. , but I think the reason why it didn't work on ur IPOD NANO, is because IPOD NANOS and IPOD TOUCHS are different( in some ways), same company manufacturer; there are probably a lot more reasons why it didn't work with ur NANO, but im just gonna tell u that it didn't work because it was meant for ipod touch(s). considering that ipod nano and ipod touch have different files and(or) folders and other programs that aren't all the same

I've been spending way too many hours trying to upload songs from CDs that I own to my ipod. I've tried about 5 downloads. ipodTrans didn't work. Sharepod would only let me go from my ipod to my computer and not the other way. Kiwigeek or something isn't available for download any more. Something else starting with the letter A worked, but was only available free for one week. ipod Trans didn't work at all. Mediamonkey seems to have been the only one out of five that has worked.

ok i did everything right but the music doesnt want to show up on my Ipod nano touch the newest version can u please help

this dont work when i try to play it the voice says sync the music first

what if my computer does not have a tool button
