Need to put songs on ipod without itunes [Solved/Closed]

-
Hey.

I have a crappy computer that kicks me off the internet. Therefore I cannot download itunes or anyother thing that takes too long. And I have my music on windows media player which the ipod doesn't work with. So can anyone tell me how I can put on songs/charge my ipod, etc with no itunes? P.S.~ I don't know much about the ipod, I just got mine.

Thanks

Thank you
All you need to do is have the driver for your ipod (so you can enter the hardrive and things and viewable).

Go on iTunes (you will never have to go then), select your Device and check "Use as hard drive" (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3837?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US ).

Then go to my computer open your ipod go to the address type
/ipod_control
after the already address
go in there and unhide all files go to music and drag a song you'll have to rename it to a 4 letters word

Say "Thank you" 1950

this sounds great, but I don't know what "have the driver" means,
does not work!!!
Have a driver I guess means the driver to open the ipod as a storage unit (like a usb memory), almost all computers do it automatically, so if you see the "installing driver" message and a window pop ups asking what you want to do with the device (probably called ipod) is simple:

Select the option "open folder to view files",
then on the folder settings (from pc, not ipod) select "view all hidden files",
then you access the music folder and do what was posted before.

Hope I helped.

These are some steps it may help you--
Step 1:
Connect iPod, Start by plugging in your iPod. Make sure that iTunes is not running—if it opens automatically, simply close the program.
Step 2:
Access iPod Through "My Computer", Open My Computer, either through an Explorer window or through the Start Menu. Now double-click on the iPod, then select Tools -> Folder Options.
Step 3:
Access Hidden Files, Go to the View tab, then check the option for "Show hidden files."
Step 4:
Drag & Drop Music, You'll now see a folder call "ipod_control"—double-click to access it, and simply copy or drag and drop your mp3 files into it! That's it, now you have music on your iPod without ever having to use iTunes!

Thank you
I use WinAmp for my Ipod. It is the best free software I could find. It is compatible with all Mp3 players and Ipods and you can get music from anywhere you want with no problems ;)
DEFINITELY!! VERY GOOD APPLICATION, USED WITH NEW IPOD NANO.

"Funny" this ...... I tried "copy to device" in windows media player yet the music doesn't show in my Apple "I-pod nano" Then I tried it with real player, same result , then with poddox (Dont forget to put the I pod on "Disk mode" still it did not help me though).... same again.Then I tried it with "CopyTransManager" and FINALLY this time I was warned that I needed to install I tunes at least once cause it also needs some other drivers then the ones (auto) installed when first connected to PC.

Really "funny" these "alternatives" ^^^^^
O well, at least copy transmanager TOLD me what was the matter.
Guess I should consider myself lucky ^^^^
Still I am really pissed off of being PUSHED to use I tunes bah, from now on I'll make a mission to AVOID these pushers whatever it takes.

Apple .., I-Tunes Go push some other sheep around for commercial reasons, but not me,cause now
I'll N-E-V-E-R E-V-E-R get anything from there after this install ( and immediately uninstall) for as long as I live. PUUUUKE.

I DONT WANT TO INSTALL SOFTWARE AND HAVE PROCESSES RUNNING JUST TO BE ABLE TO PUT SOME MUSIC ON MY I-POD ONCE A MONTH OR SO.

(YES I know how to disable processes but still...)
