First of all, you have to open iTunes on your computer. Then, click on the ‘File’ option and select ‘Add New Playlist’ in order to create a playlist.
When you will create the playlist, it will appear at the bottom of your screen as untitled playlist. You can give any name to the playlist. But, it will be better to keep it as short as possible and easy to remember so that you may open it on your iPod easily.
Now, open ‘Music’ option under the ‘Library’. Just drag and drop the songs from the iTunes Library to the playlist.
After adding all the songs to the playlist, connect your iPod with your computer with the help of USB cable. The iTunes will automatically detect your iPod and its name will appear on the left side. If you have chosen the automatic synchronising, your iPod will sync all the files itself. However, if you have not selected the automatic synchronising option, you will have to sync your device manually.
You can also make a playlist on your iPod directly without using iTunes. Just highlight and select the a song title or an album title which is presently save on your iPod. Then, press and hold the centre button until the title of the song or album starts flashing. You will have to repeat the process to get the list of songs which you intend to hear. After that, go the ‘Music’ menu and pull down the list of the current playlists which are available. Now, select ‘On-the-Go’ which will start the music.
