Apple continues to set the bar for portable media players, but iPods still don’t come with a guide to their impressive features. This full-color Missing Manual shows you how to play music, videos, and slideshows, shop the iTunes store, and create and manage your media library. It’s the most comprehensive (and popular) iPod book available.

The important stuff you need to know:

Fill it up. Load your iPod with music, photos, movies, TV shows, games, and eBooks. Tune into iTunes. Download media from the iTunes store, rip your CDs, and organize your entire media collection. Tackle the Touch. Use the Touch to shoot photos and video, send and receive email and text messages, and make video calls to otheriOS 5 gadgets. Go wireless. Sync your content and surf the Web over the air, using the Touch’s new iOS 5 software. Get moving with the Nano. Track your workouts with the built-in Nike+ sensor; dial in FM radio; and even create slideshows. Master the Shuffle and Classic. Get your Shuffle talking with VoiceOver, and play music, video, and slideshows on your Classic.

Availability for iPod: The Missing Manual
    I got this book because I got a new Ipod Touch, and they don't come with a manual. It covers all the Ipods, and Itunes too. I would have preferred one that was just about the Touch, but this was all they had at the book store and I wanted something immediately. It is well written and organized, and was helpful. I have a Classic as well as the Touch - and it helped me figure out how to get all my covers on Itunes.There is a web site that is available for more help. I would have liked more coverage on file storage and reading/editing which has to be done with an App. Although the book was published not too long ago (7th Edition), it was not accurate with the Itunes interface. I don't know if that is because they were displaying the Mac version, and I have a PC or it it had changed.I also wish they had talked about Mobile.Me.Still it was helpful and worthwhile.more
    I'm just a casual user of my 30gig video iPod, and had run across a few things that I couldn't intuitively figure out how to do. I ran across this at the library and gave it a shot. I found the parts dealing with my particular equipment to be well-written and fairly clear, although I still had to do some experimentation to get my iPod to do what the instructions said it should do. The sections dealing with other technology (such as the iPod Touch) were extraneous to me, and therefore something of a waste in this book.Overall, this book did what I needed it to...it gave me a clearer picture of how to do basic stuff with a video iPod. But I'm still glad I checked it out for free from the library instead of paying for it.more
