Your iPod comes with one of the best navigation interfaces available; a click wheel. To scroll through your play lists, click the top button, then move your thumb around the wheel until you have the playlist you want highlighted. Click the select button to play your chosen set. To go back to the previous screen, select the menu button.
If you want to keep your selections from changing while your iPod is bouncing around on your belt clip or in your purse, just select the lock function on the top of your iPod. Many of the iPods have a slide switch here that allows you to lock it.
If you want to turn your iPod off, press the arrow key at the bottom of your click wheel.
Moving your thumb around the click wheel while music is playing controls the volume, easily!
After a short while, the controls on your iPod will become second nature to you.
