Spotify is compatible with all iPod Classic models, as well as the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano. Any iPod that connects to a USB cable connection instead of an earlier cable model, which requires a FireWire connection (isn’t there a museum you can donate to?), Will work.
To sync music from Spotify to your iPod, follow these steps:
If it is running, exit iTunes.
If you have both of these applications open, you cannot sync it, as it can cause conflicts.
As usual, plug your iPod into your computer using a USB cable.
Your iPod appears under the device in the left sidebar of your Spotify window.
The first time you connect your iPod to Spotify, you will be asked if you want to erase your iPod and sync it with Spotify. In subsequent sync, as long as you continue to use Spotify for your sync, it is not asked to do so.
Erase iPod and sync with Spotify if it appears in the Spotify window.
After Spotify erases your iPod, two options appear at the top of the page: Sync all music to this iPod and choose a playlist to sync manually.
Sync all your music to your iPod.
The iPod automatically starts synchronizing all your music as Sync All Music is selected by default for this iPod option. Additionally, Spotify syncs your playlists, starred tracks and so on – but only the tracks you’ve already purchased are actually copied.
You can see how much syncing is completed by looking at the progress bar. It tells how many tracks are left to sync. Under Devices, you can also see spinning arrows next to your iPod, indicating that sync is in progress. When the arrows stop and turn into an eject button, the sync is complete.
After the sync is complete, safely delete your iPod by clicking the eject button that appears next to your iPod in the Spotify sidebar.
Your iPod can also display a message that you cannot disconnect. When the iPod is ejected properly, make sure the warning message on the iPod disappears (this may take a few seconds).
After the warning message is gone, unplug your iPod.
Your latest iPod is ready – updated via Spotify and with no interference from iTunes! The next time you plug in your iPod, it doesn’t take nearly as much time to detect any changes in your file setup as it would in the original sync.
The original Firefox standard by USB 2.0 has now overtaken the raw speed, but because Firefox has become too long, there is no risk of it disappearing. FireWire works better than USB 2.0 Many pieces of digital video equipment because older devices do not recognize USB 2.0.
Like USB, Firewire is a plug-and-play connection; The FireWire port can support 63 devices (using daisy-chaining technology). Simply connect the device to your PC using a FireWire cable – run the cable from the device to the FireWire port on your PC, and you’re ready to roll.
