The first thing you need to know here is that iTunes was developed by Apple so that you can use it with your iPod and MP3 player. My other half bought me an iPod for Christmas and he bangs on about iTunes all the time; I was too embarrassed to say that I had no idea what it was or how to use so I taught myself.
When you first start out it can seem like a load of “gobbled gook” but once you get used to it, it is actually really user-friendly. If you are like I was a few months ago then this article will help you out, (I’m nice like that)! Below are the steps that you will need to learn in order to use iTunes in its basic form.

How to get iTunes
- First of all, ensure that the drivers and sound cards are all up to date on your computer, if you don’t know how to do that ask someone who knows about computers (sorry, I can’t help there). Once you’re happy, you can begin.
- Load the iTunes website up and go to the download area.
- Make sure that you say no to any request from Apple asking if you would like to hear from them, your inbox will be full of unwanted mail.
- An easy way to download, just clicks to Download iTunes.
- When it has finished downloading you can go to the file and install iTunes, make sure you scan the file for viruses first. Apple is a reputable company but you can’t be too careful these days.
- Once installed, which is really quick you can open up the program. The first thing it will ask you is if you want to import any music you have on your computer into the program, if you do, say yes of course!
Did you know how to Import Music from your PC into iTunes
- First of all, find the folder where you keep all of your tunes.
- Next, open the iTunes program.
- Click on the File button and then click on “add a folder to library”, you will now get a browsing window so that you can find the right folder. When that’s done click ok.
- That’s it; you have just added all of the music you have on your computer to iTunes. Incidentally, if you get any duplicate songs make sure that you leave a duplicate in the “duplicate view” area or you might find yourself going back to the beginning of this section of the article and starting again!
There are loads more you can do with the iTunes program however, I’m limited for space with this article and I wanted to make sure that you know how to do the basic things with it. At least now you can start to use the program with your iPod or MP3 player!
