Can't transfer music to my ipod

I have tried to transfer a playlist, as well as individual songs, no luck. I drag my playlist to the E: but it doesn't sync to my ipod. What am I doing wrong?

iPods don't let you just drag and drop a playlist and songs in Explorer like that, for it to work, you'd need iTunes, or Mediamonkey,or Winamp to load the stuff on.

Thanks for replying... I think my problem may be that Windows 7 isn't recognizing my ipod. I just created a new list in the Media Player, dragged a few songs under the "sync" on the right and above my list, it says to connect a device. But my ipod is connected. Any suggestions?

Are you talking about Windows Media Player? If so, that will not work with iPods....you'd need one of the programs in my previous post.

Sync your iPod with Windows Media Player

discovered it was cheaper to use Ubuntu in VirtualBox and then just use the built in player RythmBox to do it for free!
