Finding iPod manuals online

Q: I purchased a refurbished 5th generation iPod online, but it didn’t come with any kind of instructional booklet. I have no clue how to even start with this item (I thought there would at least be a booklet or PDF file with it).

Since I am a senior citizen, I’m less inclined to just start pushing buttons without any idea what I’m doing. Is there access somewhere to an instructional booklet for this model?

A: You can find manuals for all of Apple’s iPod and related accessories on their web site at

Note that these manuals only provide relatively basic instructions for operating the device itself, so you may want to check out some of our tutorials for more detailed information. In particular, our Beginnner’s Guide to Filling your iPod is a good place to get started.
