Can't get my ipod to work at work

by alsaxon / April 14, 2008 11:54 AM PDT


This is my first time owning an ipod. I was hoping to use it to play music at work through my computer. I forgot that itunes was not downloaded on my work computer and cannot be downloaded on my work computer. Is there anyway I can play the music files on my work computer without having to download anything on it (since I don't have rights or privileges)? I'm thinking the only option I have is to buy external speakers and plug the ipod into it and just forget about the computer. I didn't want to have to buy speakers to leave at work. do I have any other options? If not, can someone recommend a CHEAP pair of speakers?

I swear everytime I have a techinical question you answer. How do you know all of this stuff Shocked I never heard of zero install; it sounds promising but looks like it will take some smarts to get working. Now the Floola sound marvelous! Thank you so much. I will try it and report back.
