Would you prefer to control when your iPod syncs with your iTunes library on your PC? Follow these easy steps to turn off the auto-sync feature in iTunes.
Step 1: You will need
iPod, a USB connector cable or dock and a PC with the latest version of iTunes on it.
Step 2: Get Connected
Connect one end of your USB connector cable or dock into the bottom of your iPod and the other end into the USB port on your computer. Wait for iTunes to launch.
