Question

Can't find back up option !

by vbcher / January 3, 2013 5:19 AM PST

So I recently lost all my music and luckily had backed it up some time ago so I have downloaded all my music and wish to back it up again. The problem is I cannot find out how. I have plugged in my ipod and see the Ipod nano on the top. Right under this is 'options' but no back up option. I checked under the tabs at the top - summary, music, podcasts, photos and info but none contain a back up option. In addition, on the side bar, I right clicked my device but even there no back up option is offered. Any ideas?

click on the iPod Nano icon.

On that first page in the right pane, you will see the backup and sync options
