• Publish your playlists, called “iMixes,” to the iTunes Music Store
• Create dynamic “Party Shuffle” playlists
• Listen to Internet radio stations
This guide explains how to transfer songs to iPod using iTunes and manage songs
on iPod. For information about using the other features of iTunes, open iTunes and
choose Help > iTunes and Music Store Help.

Audio File Formats Supported by iPod
• AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (up to 320 Kbps)
• Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
• MP3 (up to 320 Kbps)
• MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
• WAV
• AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
• AIFF
A song encoded using Apple Lossless format has full CD-quality sound, but takes
up only about half the amount of space as a song encoded using AIFF or WAV
format. The same song encoded in AAC or MP3 format takes up even less space.
When you import music from a CD using iTunes, it is converted to AAC format by
default.
You can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3 format. This can be
useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format. For more
information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes and Music Store Help.
iPod does not support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files, or
audible.com format 1.

browse through playlists, select Music > Playlists on iPod.
About Smart Playlists
Using iTunes, you can automatically create customized Smart Playlists from the
songs in your library. You can create a Smart Playlist that includes only certain
genres of music, songs by certain artists, or songs that match particular criteria.
For example, you could create a playlist that’s no more than 3 gigabytes (GB) in
size and includes only songs you have rated 3 stars or higher (see “Rating
Songs” on page 19).

Charging the iPod Battery
iPod has an internal, non–user–replaceable battery. If iPod isn’t used for a while,
the battery may need to be charged.
The iPod battery is 80-percent charged in about three hours, and fully charged in
about five hours. If you charge iPod while transferring files, playing music or
viewing a slideshow, it may take longer.
You can charge the iPod battery in two ways:
• Connect iPod to your PC.
• Use the iPod USB Power Adapter.
52
Using iPod
To charge the battery using your PC:
Connect iPod to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your PC. The PC must be turned
on and not in sleep mode.
Important: While songs, photos, or files are transferred using USB 2.0, the
iPod battery 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 65). It’s best to charge iPod using the
iPod Power Adapter before transferring songs or files.
If the battery icon in the upper-right corner of the iPod screen shows a lightning
bolt, the battery is charging. If it shows a plug, the battery is fully charged.
If you don’t see the lightning bolt or the plug, iPod may not be connected to a
high-power USB 2.0 port. Try another USB port on your PC.
If you can’t charge using a USB port on your PC, you can charge the battery
using the iPod USB Power Adapter.
Using iPod
53
To charge the battery using the iPod Power Adapter:
1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they may already be
assembled).
2 Connect the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable to the power adapter, and
plug the other end of the cable in to iPod.
3 Plug the power adapter in to a working electrical outlet.

Tips and Troubleshooting
Most problems with iPod can be solved quickly
by following the advice in this chapter.
If Your PC Does Not Complete the Start-up Process
When iPod is Connected With the USB Cable
On some PCs, when iPod is connected with the USB cable, it’s possible that your
PC will not complete the start-up process. If you encounter this, simply disconnect
iPod from the PC. The start-up process will then complete. Once the PC start-up
process is complete, reconnect iPod for normal operation.
If you are experiencing this issue on an HP or Compaq PC, please visit the
HP Support Web site at http://www.hp.com/support and go to your product
support page for the latest BIOS update for your PC. If you are experiencing this
issue on any other brand PC, check your PC manufacturer’s Web site for any
available PC software or BIOS updates.
57
Resetting iPod
Most problems with iPod can be solved by resetting it.
To reset iPod:
1 Connect iPod to a power outlet using the iPod Power Adapter.
2 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (set it to Hold, then turn it off again).
3 Press and hold the Select and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple
logo appears.
Identifying Your PC USB Port Type
You can check what type of USB port your PC is using.
1 Click Start on the taskbar.
2 Click Control Panel.
3 Click Performance and Maintenance, if it is present.
4 Double-click System. The System Properties window opens.
5 Click the Hardware tab.
6 Click the Device Manager button. A list of device types appears. (If the list does
not display, click View and select the Devices by Type option.)
7 Click the + (plus) box next to the device type name for Universal Serial Bus (USB)
controllers (sometimes known as Human Interface Devices) to view the list of
device names.
8 If the USB type listed says USB Enhanced Host, then your PC has a USB 2.0 port.
USB 2.0 was introduced in 2001. PC models earlier than 2001 probably have
USB 1.1 ports. iPod does not support USB 1.1.
58
Tips and Troubleshooting
If Your iPod Won’t Turn On or Respond
• Make sure the Hold switch is off.
• If that doesn’t work, connect iPod to the iPod Power Adapter and connect the
adapter to a working electrical outlet. Your iPod battery may need to be
recharged.
• If that doesn’t work, your iPod may need to be reset (see above).
• If that doesn’t work, you may need to restore iPod software. See “iPod Software
Update and Restore” on page 65.
If You Want to Disconnect iPod, but the Screen Says
“Do not disconnect”
• If iPod is transferring music, wait for the transfer to complete.
• Select iPod in the iTunes Source list and click the Eject button.
• If iPod disappears from the iTunes Source list, but you still see the “Do not
disconnect” message on the iPod screen, go ahead and disconnect iPod.
• If iPod doesn’t disappear from the iTunes Source list, click the Safely Remove
Hardware icon in the system tray and select your iPod. If you still see the “Do
not disconnect” message, restart your PC and eject iPod again.
Tips and Troubleshooting
59
If Your iPod Isn’t Playing Music
• Make sure the Hold switch is off.
• If you’re using the optional iPod Remote, make sure the remote’s Hold switch
is off.
• Make sure the headphones connector is pushed in all the way.
• Make sure the volume is adjusted properly.
• If that doesn’t work, push the Play/Pause button. Your iPod may be paused.
• Make sure you are using iTunes 4.7 (included on the iPod CD) or later. Songs
purchased from the iTunes Music Store using earlier versions of iTunes won’t
play on iPod until you upgrade iTunes and transfer the songs.
• If you’re using the iPod Dock, be sure the iPod is seated firmly in the Dock and
make sure all cables are connected properly.
• If you are using the Dock Line Out port, make sure your external speakers or
stereo are turned on and working properly.
If You Connect iPod to Your PC and Nothing Happens
• Make sure you have installed the software from the iPod CD.
• Make sure you meet or exceed minimum system requirements. See “What You
Need to Get Started” on page 7.
• Your iPod may need to be reset (see page 58).
• Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no
foreign objects are in the USB or FireWire ports. Then plug the cable back in
securely. Be sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can
only be inserted one way.
60
Tips and Troubleshooting
• If you’re connecting iPod to a portable or notebook PC using the iPod Dock
Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the PC to a power outlet before
connecting iPod.
• If that doesn’t work, restart your PC.
• If that doesn’t work, you may need to restore iPod software. See “iPod Software
Update and Restore” on page 65.
If You See a Folder With an Exclamation Point on the
iPod Display
• iPod may need to be reset (see page 58).
• If that doesn’t work, your iPod battery may need to be recharged. Connect iPod
to the iPod Power Adapter and connect the adapter to a working electrical
outlet. If you still see the folder, reset iPod again.
• If that doesn’t work, you may need to update or restore iPod with the latest
software. Be sure you have installed the software from the iPod CD, or go to
http://www.hp.com/go/music/update to get the latest software. Then follow
the instructions on page 65 to update or restore the iPod software.
Tips and Troubleshooting
61
If Songs or Data Transfer More Slowly Over USB 2.0
• If you transfer a large amount of songs or data using USB 2.0 and the iPod
battery is low, iPod goes into a power-saving mode. Transfer speeds slow down
considerably. This is normal.
• If you want to transfer at higher speeds, you can stop the transfer, eject the
iPod, and connect it to a power outlet using the iPod Power Adapter. Let iPod
charge for about an hour, then connect it to your PC again to transfer music.
If You Connect iPod to a USB Port and It Doesn’t
Work Correctly
• You must use a USB 2.0 port or a FireWire port to connect iPod. USB 1.1 is not
supported and is significantly slower than FireWire and USB 2.0. If your PC
doesn’t have a FireWire port or USB 2.0 port, you can purchase and install a
Windows-certified USB 2.0 card and install it. If you’re using a PC that doesn’t
have a high-power USB 2.0 port but has a 6-pin FireWire port, you can
connect iPod to a FireWire port using the optional iPod Dock Connector to
FireWire Cable, available at http://www.hpshopping.com/musicaccessories
• To charge the battery, you must connect iPod to a high-power USB 2.0 port on
your PC. Connecting iPod to a USB port on your keyboard will not charge the
battery.
• If your iPod is exceptionally low on power and you connect it to a USB 2.0
port, it may charge for up to 30 minutes before you can use it. Leave iPod
connected until it charges sufficiently.
• If you’re connecting iPod to a portable or notebook PC using the iPod Dock
Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the PC to a power outlet before
connecting iPod.

4 Select the second menu item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you have added or removed items from the iPod main menu (see
page 48), the Settings menu may be in a different place.
If You Can’t Transfer Photos Directly From Your
Camera
• Be sure you have the iPod Camera Connector (available at
http://www.hpshopping.com/musicaccessories) and a USB digital camera.
• If your camera didn’t come with a USB cable, you’ll need to purchase one. See
the camera manufacturer’s Web site to find compatible cables.
• If photos aren’t transferring, be sure your camera is turned on and set to the
correct mode for importing photos into iPod. See the instructions provided with
your camera. Also be sure the cable is connected firmly to your camera and to
the camera connector.
Tips and Troubleshooting
63
If You Can’t See Photos on Your Television
• If you transferred photos directly from a camera or card reader to iPod, you
can’t see them in a slideshow on a TV. You must transfer photos from your
camera to your PC, then transfer them to iPod using iTunes.
• Be sure your television is set to display images from the correct input source (see
the documentation that came with your television for more information).
• Be sure all cables are connected correctly (see page 42).
• If you’re using the iPod AV Cable, be sure the yellow end is connected to the
video port on your television.
Note: Use RCA-type cables made specifically for iPod. Other similar cables
won’t work.
• On iPod, go to Photos > Slideshow Settings and set TV Out to On, then try
again.
• If that doesn’t work, on iPod, go to Photos > Slideshow Settings and set TV
Signal to PAL or NTSC, depending on which type of television you have. Try
both settings.
If You Want to Use Your iPod With a PC and a Mac
Once you have installed iPod on a PC, you can also use it on a Mac. Using it on
a Mac, replaces all the content that was loaded from your PC into your iPod with
the content you have on the Mac. The content you had on your PC iTunes
software remains intact. Using the Apple iPod from HP on a Mac is not supported
by HP.

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 USB
Power Adapter in to 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.
69
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 Headphones 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.
70
Safety and Cleaning
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 USB cable to the power adapter, make sure there are no
foreign objects inside the power adapter’s USB 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 67.
• Never force a connector into the power adapter USB 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 67.

Safety and Cleaning
Do Not Make Repairs Yourself
Warning Do not attempt to open your iPod or power adapter, disassemble it,
or remove the battery. You run the risk of electric shock and voiding the limited
warranty. No user-serviceable parts are inside.
For service, see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 67.
Cleaning
Follow these general rules when cleaning the outside of your iPod and its
components:
• Make sure your iPod is unplugged.
• Use a damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings.
• Don’t use aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, or abrasives.
About Handling
Your iPod may be damaged by improper storage or handling. Be careful not to
drop your iPod when playing or transporting the device.

Communications Regulation Information
FCC Compliance Statement
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC
rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired
operation. See instructions if interference to
radio or television reception is suspected.
Radio and Television Interference
This PC equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed and used properly — that is, in strict
accordance with HP’s instructions — it may
cause interference with radio and television
reception.
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device in accordance with the specifications
in Part 15 of FCC rules. These specifications
are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a
residential installation. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation.
74
You can determine whether your PC system is
causing interference by turning it off. If the
interference stops, it was probably caused by
the PC or one of the peripheral devices.
If your PC system does cause interference to
radio or television reception, try to correct
the interference by using one or more of the
following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until
the interference stops.
• Move the PC to one side or the other of the
television or radio.
• Move the PC farther away from the
television or radio.
• Plug the PC in to an outlet that is on a
different circuit from the television or radio.
(That is, make certain the PC and the
television or radio are on circuits controlled
by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
If necessary, consult an HP-authorized service
provider or HP. See the service and support
information that came with your HP product.
Or, consult an experienced radio/television
technician for additional suggestions.
Important: Changes or modifications to
this product not authorized by
Hewlett-Packard Company could void the
EMC compliance and negate your authority
to operate the product.
This product was tested for EMC compliance
under conditions that included the use of HP
peripheral devices and HP shielded cables
and connectors between system components.
It is important that you use HP peripheral
devices and shielded cables and connectors
between system components to reduce the

television sets, and other electronic devices.
You can obtain HP peripheral devices and
the proper shielded cables and connectors
through an HP Authorized Reseller. For
