Follow these steps to sync music from Spotify to your iPod:

1: Quit iTunes, if it’s running.

2: Open Spotify.

3: Connect your iPod with your computer by using the USB cable.
Your iPod should appear below Devices in your Spotify window’s left sidebar.
The first time you connect your iPod to Spotify, you’ll be asked if you want to erase your iPod and sync it with Spotify. In subsequent syncs, you aren’t asked to do this again as long as you continue using Spotify for your syncs.

4: Click Erase iPod & Sync with Spotify, if it appears in the Spotify window.
Two options appear at the top of the page after Spotify erases your iPod: Sync All Music to This iPod and Manually Choose Playlists to Sync.


5: Sync all your music to your iPod.
The iPod automatically starts syncing all your music because the Sync All Music to This iPod option is selected by default. Additionally, Spotify syncs your playlists, starred tracks and so on — but only tracks you’ve already bought are actually copied over.


6: Safely remove your iPod after the sync is complete.
Your iPod itself may also display a message warning you not to disconnect. When the iPod is properly ejected, make sure the warning message on the iPod disappears (it may take a few seconds).


7: After the warning message is gone, unplug your iPod.
