Digital devices such as music players, digital cameras, mobile Internet devices, and smart phones are a key element of today's culture. Though these devices are designed to work in isolation, they almost always require some sort of connection to a desktop or laptop to synchronize, update, or archive content. Each type of device has its own connection requirements. For digital music players, such as iPods and MP3 players, connecting to a laptop or desktop system enables you to synchronize libraries and playlists or simply to add new music. For digital cameras, you are usually downloading and archiving photos to free up space on the device. For smart phones and PDAs, you're usually synchronizing address books and archiving notes and other content.
