    Hi, I'm pretty computer clueless....

    I want to import some christmas music to my ipod but I don't want to loose the current music i have on my ipod when I connect my ipod to my macbook.

    How do I manually import an itunes playlist on my macbook to my ipod?

    Thanks for the help...

    I'm not in front of my Mac right now, but just plug in your iPod, click on the iPod in the list on the left side of the screen and from there you can manage your playlists under the Music tab. I think it's simply a matter of clicking the check box on the new playlist and then resyncing...assuming this is the same computer and iTunes account you always sync to, you will have only added the new playlist and not erased the other music as long as you didn't uncheck any of the other playlists.

    this is what i understand from your explanation: you have an ipod that you usually sync in a computer, and you have also a macbook where you have this christmas songs and want to get those in your ipod if this is correct you have 2 options to get this done

    1 (this is the easiest one since you say you are computer clueless) copy those songs to a flash drive(usb memory flash drive), then plug that flash drive to the computer where you normally sync your ipod add those songs to itunes (play them through itunes) and finally sync your ipod

    the second one its a lot harder try the first one and tell me if it helps:cool:
