How get mp3 file from my itunes to to my ipod or iphone using iTunes 11?

How do I get an .MP3 file from my itunes to my iPod or iphone? I am using  the newest version of itunes and it seems to handle this differently than in the past.

In the past, once I got a file (an .mp3 file) into a playlist on itunes I would plug in my device (Ipod for example), drag and drop the new files from the playlist into a directory on the iPod and then Rysnyc.

Now, I do not see a reference on the left side of the screen in the listbox referring to my Ipod. There's nothing to drag and drop too.   When I select File, Devices Reysnyc, it seems to imply that things are resynced, but I do not see a reference on my ipod to the file I want to hear.  This seems like quite a change in the way things work.

Any help appreciated.

Thank you for your effort, but the question has less to do with how to create an .mp3 than with how, once created, to get that file synced and on my ipod.  I already have .mp3 files in a certain playlist, but am unable at present, with the new software, to get it on my external device.  No offense intended here, but it is delineated about as well as I can say it in the original message.

Best Regards

Woody

In the upper right hand corner of the screen in iTunes, when you're looking at your music library, you'll see a box that says "iPhone," or if you have multiple devices connected (ipad, iphone, ipod, etc.), "3 devices" or whatever.  Drag the music you want onto that button on the top right corner, and it'll dropdown/expand to show you your iPhone (or whatever else is connected), and then you can deposit the music onto the device in the way you're accustomed to.
