034-2616-A.book Page 6 Thursday, July 8, 2004 12:36 PM
Step 2: Install the Software
Insert the iPod CD into your PC and install iTunes and the iPod software.
Step 3: Import Music to Your PC
Complete this step if you haven’t already transferred music to your PC. You can
import music from your audio CDs, or if you have an Internet connection, you can
buy music online and download it to your PC using the iTunes Music Store. You
can browse hundreds of thousands of songs and listen to a 30-second preview of
any song. The iTunes Music Store is available in some countries/regions only.
To import music to your PC from an audio CD:
1 Insert a CD into your PC. iTunes opens automatically and the CD is selected in the
iTunes Source list.
2 Uncheck songs you don’t want to transfer, then click Import.
3 Repeat for any other CDs with songs you’d like to import.
To buy music online:
1 Open iTunes and click Music Store in the Source list.
2 Click the Account button and follow the onscreen instructions to set up an account
or enter your existing Apple Account or America Online (AOL) account
information.
For an in-depth tutorial on transferring music to and playing music on iPod, see
the iPod Tutorial on the iPod CD.

Quick Start
034-2616-A.book Page 7 Thursday, July 8, 2004 12:36 PM
Step 4: Connect iPod and Transfer Music
Connect iPod to your PC using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable. Be
sure the connectors on both ends of the cable are oriented correctly. They can
only be inserted one way.
Note: If you have a PC with a 6-pin FireWire 400 port, you can use the iPod
Dock Connector to FireWire Cable.
Note: USB 1.1 is not supported.
You can also use the optional iPod Dock (see page 21).
Use the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable
to connect to a high-power USB 2.0 port.
Quick Start
7
034-2616-A.book Page 8 Thursday, July 8, 2004 12:36 PM
When you connect iPod to your PC, iTunes opens automatically and transfers the
songs and playlists in your music library to iPod.
Note: If you’re connecting using USB 2.0, be sure to connect iPod to a highpower USB 2.0 port directly on your PC, or to a powered USB 2.0 hub that’s
connected to your PC. iPod won’t work if it’s connected to a low-power USB 2.0
port, such as those sometimes found on keyboards or other peripherals.
While songs or files are transferred using USB 2.0, the iPod loses charge.
Transferring songs or files when iPod isn’t sufficiently charged can cause
incomplete transfer, loss of the information being transferred, and may require a
restore (see page 52). It’s best to charge iPod before transferring songs or files.
You can charge the iPod by connecting it to your PC without transferring files or
by using the iPod Power Adapter.
Note: If you’re using a portable or laptop PC with a high-power USB 2.0 port,
connect the PC to a power outlet before connecting iPod for best results.
If your PC doesn’t have a 6-pin FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394) port or a high-power
USB 2.0 port, here are other ways you can connect iPod:
• Purchase a FireWire card or USB 2.0 card, and install it.
• Or, if your PC has a 4-pin FireWire port, you can use an optional
6-pin–to–4-pin FireWire adapter.
Note: You can’t charge iPod through your PC using a 4-pin FireWire port.

in the drive to play music
• Make your own CDs (if your PC has a CD burner)
• Publish your playlists to the iTunes Music Store (available in some countries/
regions only)
• Create dynamic “Party Shuffle” playlists

Safety and Cleaning
Read on to learn about using iPod safely and
cleaning iPod.
Important Safety Instructions
When setting up and using your iPod, remember the following:
• Read all the installation instructions carefully before you plug your iPod Power
Adapter into a power outlet.
• Keep these instructions handy for reference by you and others.
• Follow all instructions and warnings dealing with your iPod.
Warning Electrical equipment may be hazardous if misused. Operation of this
product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not
allow children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit
them to handle any cables.
55
034-2616-A.book Page 56 Thursday, July 8, 2004 12:36 PM
Avoid Hearing Damage
Warning Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are
used at high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound,
which may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. Set your iPod
volume to a safe level before that happens. If you experience ringing in your
ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use of your iPod.
Do Not Use While Driving
Important: Use of headphones while operating a vehicle is not recommended
and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop listening
to your iPod if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of
vehicle or performing any other activity that requires your full attention.
Connectors and Ports
Never force a connector into a port. If the connector and port do not join with
reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make sure that the connector
matches the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation
to the port.
Battery
Do not attempt to remove the iPod battery. iPod must be disposed of according to
local environmental regulations.
56
Safety and Cleaning
034-2616-A.book Page 57 Thursday, July 8, 2004 12:36 PM
Using the Power Adapter
• Use only the power adapter that came with your iPod. Adapters for other
electronic devices may look similar, but they may damage your iPod.
• The only way to shut off power to your power adapter completely is to
disconnect it from the power source.
• Always leave space around your power adapter. Do not use this equipment in a
location where airflow around the power adapter is confined, such as a
bookcase.
• When connecting or disconnecting your power adapter, always hold the power
adapter by its sides. Keep fingers away from the metal part of the plug.
• Before connecting the FireWire cable to the power adapter, make sure there are
no foreign objects inside the power adapter’s FireWire port.
• The power adapter for your iPod is a high-voltage component and should not
be opened for any reason, even when the iPod is off. If the power adapter
needs service, see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 53.
• Never force a connector into the power adapter FireWire port. If the connector
and port do not join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make
sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the
connector correctly in relation to the port.

About Operating and Storage Temperatures
• Operate your iPod in a place where the temperature is always between 0º and
35º C (32º to 95º F).
• Store your iPod in a place where the temperature is always between –20º and
45º C (–4º to 113º F). Don’t leave iPod in your car, since temperatures in
parked cars can exceed this range.
• iPod play time may temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.
• When you’re using your iPod or charging the battery, it is normal for the bottom
of the case to get warm. The bottom of the iPod case functions as a cooling
surface that transfers heat from inside the unit to the cooler air outside.
Avoid Wet Locations
Warning To reduce the chance of shock or injury, do not use your iPod in or
near water or wet locations.
• Keep your iPod and power adapter away from sources of liquids, such as
drinks, washbasins, bathtubs, shower stalls, and so on.
• Protect your iPod and the power adapter from direct sunlight and rain or other
moisture.
• Take care not to spill any food or liquid on iPod or its power adapter. If you do,
unplug iPod before cleaning up the spill.
In case of a spill, you may have to send your equipment to HP for service. See
“Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 53.
