Step 1: View Lyrics for a Song

A neat little feature for your ipod. All you need for this is iTunes.

1st, get the lyrics for the song online. Copy it onto the clipboard.

2nd, in iTunes, right click the song and click Get Info.

3rd, click on the lyrics tab. Paste the lyrics into there.

You're done! Now just get onto your ipod, start playing the song, and click the center button a few times until you get to the lyrics. Yay! Ipod Sing-along time!

Step 2: Give a Song Album Art

Some people get their music from other sources than iTunes Store. Some of them have CDs, or they bought it online from another source. Here is how you give those songs album art.

1st, find a picture of the album art online, or if you have it, you are good to go. A good source for finding album art online is Wikipedia.

2nd, go into iTunes, select the songs you want to give the album art (ctrl+click to select multiple songs), right click, and click on Get Info.

3rd, click on artwork and upload the image of the album art.

Viola! Now on your ipod, you can view the album art! Yay!

 Your fantastic yay Kings of leon :)))
I used my 6th Gen Classic and it asked me to plug in the cord.
This only works for 5th Gen Ipods (Im not sure if 4th too).

Video output for 6th Gen was moved to the data port (USB cable) so you need to purchase a special cable for that (around 45 or 50 bucks last time I checked)
 OMG OMG OMG
Drowning Pool! :D
Love.
<3
jsyk all the cables are the same the color is just so you dont get them switched from plugging them into your tv to what ever you are using as an imput

Who are you to say that the ipod is not useful. I think it is awesome. I think you should appriciate this instructable, and not just say it's crappy because the iPods are crappy. /rant Anyway, thanks for the tips jokada
