New to iPod Touch and to MediaMonkey. Help Please?

Postby victorstillwater » Sun Jun 21, 2009 5:17 am

Hi folks,

I'm sorry to bother everyone here, but I decided to try MediaMonkey out after reading about it on LifeHacker. Um, not sure how to start, so I might as well explain my predicament.

I used to own an iPod Mini, and back in those days, using iTunes meant dragging and dropping music files of mine into their requisite playlist folders. It doesn't seem to be the case now with the latest version of iTunes, and I'm getting annoyed with figuring out how to sync my newly bought iPod Touch to the music I want to play, when I can't even arrange my playlist or add music onto a playlist folder I just created.

Hence, I've downloaded mediamonkey. But have yet to install it. I thought to ask some questions so I could figure out what I'm getting myself into.

First off, is MediaMonkey more or less a drag and drop interface. My computer (Windows XP) has three partitions, with the OS and installed stuff on one partition, and my music on a separate partition. Will it allow me to drag and drop the music regardless of its location?

Second, how do I sync the iPod Touch to MediaMonkey? Is MM a sort of organizing device only, which means I'll still need to use The latest version of iTunes to make it work?

Lastly, are there any things I should know as a beginner to this generation of mp3 players that may be useful? Like tricks for using MEdiaMonkey, and so forth?

Again, many thanks.
-Victor

No. With MM you really need to have the music on your PC and copy it to the iPod (one way sync). Drag and drop to playlists on an iPod won't work, and you can't create playlists directly on the iPod. You should create everything in MM, then have that synced to the iPod (same with any other device).

Second, how do I sync the iPod Touch to MediaMonkey? Is MM a sort of organizing device only, which means I'll still need to use The latest version of iTunes to make it work?
