How To Sync iPod Without Erasing Other Songs

iTunes enhances Apple's media software in a number of ways. It is used mostly for managing audio and video content for your PC or Mac. If you sync your iPod with iTunes, all of the music on the iPod will be replaced with the music that is available on the computer that you're using. This is especially problematic if you want to use multiple computers to sync your iPod. If you wish to keep all your music and stop this from happening, this article will help you.

Avoid Deleting Music When Syncing iPod

When you connect your iPod to the computer, click the iPod icon, then tick Manually manage music.

Next, create a playlist, adding all of the songs that you want to put onto your iPod. Then, under the iPod icon, click Music. Under the Autofill from section, select the playlist that you have created and click Autofill.

The new songs will be added without deleting those that are already on the iPod.

This is amazing! I almost can’t believe it worked but it did! Thank you so much!!
I tried to figure how to add songs without delete in game the songs already on iPod for at least a couple hours... checked other sites out that said they could do it but their advice didn’t work... read over your instructions & applied them & within minutes was downloading new music, old music still there! Thank You So Very Much!! ????
