Synchronization of an iPod to a computer involves connecting the iPod to the laptop, completing the setup, naming the device and then finishing the setup. This connection allows a person to transfer music files from the laptop to the iPod.
It is necessary to connect the iPod to the right port on the laptop. After connecting, the person should open Windows Media Player. A setup dialog box will appear. This allows the person to name their device and complete the setup. The iPod is then connected to Windows Media Player, and a person can add files to be synced, by dragging items to the right pane.
