Method 2: How to Sync Music from Mac to iPod with iTunes
iTunes is a one-way transfer software which only allows users to import all your favorite songs from Mac to iPod touch, nano, or shuffle.
First, as previously said, you should download iTunes from App Store. Open iTunes by clicking the "iTunes" icon on your desktop.
Click and drag the music file(s) you want to transfer onto your iPod Touch, as a new iTunes browser window open, click the "Music" tab in the new browser window. It is found between the "Summary" and "Movies" tabs.
Check the box next to "Sync Music." Select the radio button next to the words "Entire music library."
Finally click the "Apply" button. iTunes will begin transferring the music files from Mac to the iPod. When you see "Sync Complete", it means the sync is complete. And now you can enjoy your music on your iPod.
But since iTunes does not support music transferring from iPod to personal computer, it becomes harder for iPod users to update their songs and free up space at the same time. You can consider use iPhone Care Pro for Mac as a complementary tool.
