So you just bought your parents or significant other a shiny new iPod for the holidays. Great, but now your ears are burning with questions like, “How do get my CDs on this thing?” or “Why are my favorite playlists not syncing?” or “How can I subscribe to this podast?”. Well don’t worry because we got your back. Our good friend Richard Tanner (writer of the ever popular, “Hitchhikers Guide to the Macintosh” series) has put together a helpful “Beginners Guide to iTunes” (PDF ~2.1MB). This is the perfect companion for any new iPod owner who needs a little help getting started with iTunes 7. The well organized 16 page guide is in a printable PDF format and includes helpful full color screenshots to guide a new user through all aspects of using iTunes. Now, Richard is from the UK so the guide (and some language) does skew slightly toward the other side of the pond, but the concepts taught are all solid and should translate regardless of your geographic location. I hope you find it helpful and a big thanks to Richard for taking the time for sharing this with the community.

I don’t mean to be rude but that guide to iTunes looks painful to the eyes. There is no breathing space between items. Everything is spaced way too closely. It makes iTunes look like a scary application.
I didn’t realize it was not apple that made it, so when I saw it, I was thinking, “oh dear, apple skimped out on their documentation!” But, it wasn’t them that made it… so that’s good.
Thanks for this great info. Will definitely check it out, since I’m having some trouble with my iTunes too.
