Using iPod shuffle?
« on: May 05, 2021, 08:20:12 PM »

DW recently purchased an iPod shuffle.  She's been trying to get songs from her Win10 laptop to the shuffle and not having any luck.

She's connected the shuffle to the laptop via a USB cable, Windows will see the shuffle.  She's tried dragging the songs over using Explorer and tried sending them via iTunes - no joy.

This is the first and only Apple device we own.

What's it going to take to make it work?

Are these songs download on the computer?

No, the songs she's been trying to copy are still in the Apple Music Store - not on the hard drive.  The songs are supposed to be part of a free trial of the Store.

She did just try copying over a song that is on the hard drive, it copied over just fine.
