    You need to install iTunes.
    Download itunes
    Install it, follow the instructions
    From iTunes menu> Files>Add folder and chose the folder with your MP3, with the IPod connected, from the left pane in iTunes select the IPod and syncronize

    Your IPod should be connected to appear on the screen, if it's connected and deosn't appear there's a problem with the connection
