How to Transfer Music to iPod without iTunes Sync
iTunes is stupid. If you install it, they install Quicktime, software updater, Bonjour sharing service, device support, and iTunes !! All what I want is to put songs from my PC to my iPod. That's all. I don't want any of those programs...What's the lightest software/method to transfer songs to your iPod? Man.
Many people take a fancy to iPod music. Thus, when they find some beautiful songs, or when they get new iPods, they urge to download music to iPod. But, unfortunately, although iTunes can sync songs or playlists to your iPod, it also deletes the previous songs saved on your iPod. What if tons of iPod songs haven’t been backed up to your computer before? It will be a great pity to lose these songs when you attempt to sync iPod with iTunes.
Luckily, there’s nothing you should worry about. You can still transfer music to iPod without losing songs in your iPod with the help of an iPod music transfer. Wondershare TunesGo (for Window users) or Wonershare TunesGo (Mac) (for Mac users) is such kind of program that you are looking for. It can help you convert music from your computer and iTunes to your iPod at ease. By few clicks, songs will be transferred to your iPod. Surprisly, it will never delete the previous songs on iPod. In addition, if the songs formats are incompatible with iTunes, it will convert them to iOS-optimized ones.

Sync Music to iPod in 2 Steps
No matter whether you take the Windows version or the Mac version, you can follow the steps below to import music to your iPod . Here we just take the Windows version for example. (Steps with the Mac version are similar).
Step 1. Connect Your iPod to your computer
To get started, install and then run this iPod music transfer on your computer. Connect your iPod to your computer via a USB cable. Under normal circumstance, the program will detect your iPod immediately as soon as it’s connected. Then your iPod will be shown in the primary window like the screenshot below:
Note: TunesGo (Windows) supports iPod touch 5/4/3, while the Mac version supports iPod touch 5/4. Both versions are compatible with iOS 7, iOS 5 and iOS 6.
Step 2. Copy music to iPod from PC and iTunes
Now, click "Media" in the left panel to open the media window. Then click the first button - "Music". This will bring up the music window. To import music on your computer, you can click the triangle under "Add">"Add File" or "Add Folder".
After choosing your wanted music files or folder, you should click "Open" to import music to iPod. Like I mentioned above, if the music formats are incompatible with iPod, like AAC, MKA, AIFF, this program will convert them to compatible one – MP3.
Note: TunesGo is absolutely compatible with the latest iTunes 11.
If you want to import music to iPod from iTunes, you should click “Playlist” in the left column. Then in the playlist window, still click the triangle under “Add”. In its pull-down menu, choose “Add iTunes playlist”. A small window pops up.
By default, all the playlists are ticked off. If you want to import some of them, just remove the marks before your unwanted playlists. After that, click "OK" to import iTunes playlists.
Note: If you use the Mac version, you should know that the Mac version doesn’t let you transfer music and playlists from iTunes to your iPod for the time being.
Well done! You have imported and converted music to iPod successfully. Enjoy songs on your iPod now.
Besides music, you can also import and convert video to your iPod and transfer photos to your iPod. If there’re too many photos on your iPod, you can even delete these photos to make room for other files.
