Syncing Ipod in Windows Media Player

I am trying to sync my Ipod in Windows Media Player. Instructions say to attach my portable device in Windows Media Player and click the sync tab if it isn't already selected. click sync options and choose set up sync from the drop down menu to display the device setup dialog box. When I connect my Ipod and select sync it says connect a device. i can't select set up sync. What do I do to sync my music in Windows Media Player to my Ipod? Any help would be appreciated.

Hello !!

I don't think you can sync I-pod directly with Windows Media Player without a plugin. You might need this plug-in to do this Sync your iPod with Windows Media Player

Hope this helps,
