"Oh, iTunes won't sync my iPod. My PC is authorized, but it still is failing to copy music from the computer to the iPod."

Let’s face it: just because you’re using an iPod doesn’t mean you are a fan of iTunes. iTunes is the default music software for all Apple products, including iOS devices (iPod, iPhone, and iPad) and Mac computers. At times, however, iTunes can be a difficult software to work with, one ridden with barriers to freely managing and transferring your music. Many iPod users are asking if there are other options for managing a music library, creating playlists, and transferring music. Is there another software application that would allow you to avoid iTunes and directly transfer music from a computer to an iPod?

The most common way for tech-savvy iPod users to transfer music from a computer to the iPod without iTunes is to maneuver through the computer manually. It is a complicated process with many steps and requires you to have a fairly good understanding of how your PC works. If you are like many music lovers, you may not have the specialized knowledge to get the job done this way (but there are tutorials online for different iPod versions, if you wanted to give it a shot). For the purpose of this article, and given the difference in steps for each iPod version, we won’t detail it here! But we will show you how to transfer music from a computer to an iPod without iTunes, completely free, in minutes, using a third party software application.
