I have ripped and downloaded a variety of MP3 files onto my computer. I want to copy them onto my iPod Nono so that I can listen to these songs with the iPod MP3 player. How can I transfer MP3 files from my PC to my iPod touch? Thanks for any help!

iPod is an excellent device to store and play audio files encoded by MP3 or AAC. People like to listen to the music with their iPod while walking, studying, or traveling. Since iTunes can play audio files in MP3 format, so these files can be copied to iTunes in the first place and then transfer them to iPod through iTunes sync. However, sometimes, you may encountered some iTunes sync issues, for example, songs can’t be copied to iPod or cannot be played.
