Using a non-iPod MP3 player on a Mac

CNET's Donald Bell offers some tips on how to use a Mac with MP3 players other than the Apple iPod.


Using an iPod on a Mac is so simple--it's a little scary. With iTunes already installed on every Mac, a newly-connected iPod will just automatically soak up your music collection like a sponge.

But what if you want to use a non-Apple brand of MP3 player with your Mac? iPods are great and all, but they're not for everyone. Even die-hard iPod owners sometimes want a cheap little iPod alternative to take to the gym or hand over to a destructive toddler.

If you're a Mac user whose MP3 expertise begins and ends with iTunes, you might feel a little out of your element when it comes to syncing a non-iPod MP3 player with your Mac. To help you out, I've put together a handy video with some tips and tricks for getting most MP3 players to work on a Mac (sorry Zunesters, still no hope for you).
