syncing an ipod shuffle with wmp on vista
« on: December 16, 2009, 09:47:07 PM »
ok, I know nothing about mp3 players.  My son was trying to download some music to a friend's Ipod shuffle.  but it wouldn't sync with it.  My kids have mp3 players but not ipods, so I don't want to install itunes just to put a few songs on.

is there some freeware out there that will allow this?  i found this link but it is a 30 day trial.  here

we have wmp version 11 on Vista Business.

any ideas?

I haven't tried this, but lifehacker posted this recently: CopyTrans Manager Organizes and Manages Your iPhone or iPod Without iTunes

Good luck!

EDIT: I'm going to download and try this myself - just noticed that it doesn't need to be installed - can be run off a USB drive  :Thmbsup:

MediaMonkey will do it with a plugin. Foobar2000 will do it with a plugin as well.

Hmmm... this reminds me - won't WinAmp do it as well?

It should work out of the box, even :)
