How to Put Music on iPod without iTunes

By Emily Watson, Thursday, May 28, 2015

For iPod users, the first thing they would do is put music onto iPod. The sync process is easy. However, for those who use multiple computers, or install new iTunes on PC, they should be familiar with this iTunes alert, "The iPod is synced with another iTunes library. Do you want to erase this iPod and sync with this iTunes library?" If you sync your iPod with iTunes, all the existing music in your iPod will be deleted. To prevent this from happening, you can have a try on FonePaw iOS Transfer, which can easily transfer music from computer to iPod touch/classic/shuffle/nano without restrictions of iTunes. And when you don't want music on your iPod, you can also use it to delete music from iPod.

Now download the free trial version of FonePaw iOS Transfer and follow the guide to put music on iPod.
