Basics of ipod FAQ
1.What is the iPod?
The original Apple press release defined the first iPod as:
A breakthrough MP3 music player that packs up to 1,000 CD-quality songs into an ultra-portable, 6.5 ounce design that fits in your pocket. iPod combines a major advance in portable music device design with Apple's legendary ease of use and Auto-Sync, which automatically downloads all your iTunes songs and playlists into your iPod, and keeps them up to date whenever you plug your iPod into your Mac.
In particular, the original iPod was unique compared to earlier flash memory-based MP3 players because the hard drive enabled the iPod to store many times more songs or data files, and earlier hard drive-based players were enormous and generally not suitable for use while running, playing basketball, or performing other activities.
Since the original iPod, Apple added Windows support and the line has expanded to include photo and video capability and games, as well as smaller flash-based players -- the iPod nano and iPod shuffle models -- more like those that the original iPod decimated (but with greater capacity than was possible when the iPod was introduced).
Competitive products have become much better as well over the five years since the iPod was introduced, but a few software can convert all kinds of audio/video formats,here I recommend ipod video for mac,http://www.xilisoft.com/ipod-video-converter-mac.html

3.How do I charge the iPod?
For full-size iPod, iPod mini, and iPod nano models, you can charge the iPod by connecting it to your computer with the provided cable. Starting with the iPod mini (2G), Apple stopped providing an AC adapter, but for models that did not ship with one, an AC adapter can be purchased at additional cost.
For the first generation iPod shuffle, you recharge it by plugging it into a USB port. The second generation iPod shuffle needs to be plugged into a small dock that is connected to a computer.
