Setting Up Your iPod
Now that iTunes has recognized the iPod, it's time to set it up. By default iTunes should be at a screen asking you to enter a name and some other info about your iPod. Go ahead and fill in a name for your iPod and any other info that you would like. When you are done, click the OK button.
If you were not prompted with the iTunes setup name screen, look for your iPod in the left iTunes list. It should be under Devices. Click your iPod and it should bring you to the name screen.
After you have entered a name for your iPod, it is ready to go. Upon clicking your iPod from the left list in iTunes, you will notice that there are two main tabs, settings and contents. If you would like, go through the available settings for your iPod and configure them to your preferences. After you are finished, click the contents tab.
The contents windows should look pretty empty, as there is nothing on your iPod yet. If you want to get started with your iPod ASAP, you can click the Autofill button, located in the bottom right-hand side of the iTunes Window. If you want to manually add songs, videos, games, and apps, go ahead and navigate to your iTunes library and drag songs from the library to your iPod.
That's all there is to it. You should now have successfully synced your iPod with your PC. Now, whenever you connect your iPod to the PC, all of your settings will be saved and you can delete and add new content.
