hi guys,
ive been a mac user for just over a year now and today finally had enough cash to buy myself a 60g iPod video.

so i pluged it into my iBook G4 and charged it up for about 5 hours added a few songs to see how it works and all is cool. but im wondering one thing. when i view my iPod as a drive within Finder where are the songs that i have put onto it? or can you only view the songs you have put onto your iPod via iTunes?

also was wondering how do i put pictures onto it? is this done via iPhoto or can i just make a new folder on in through Finder and put images into it?

errr. *thinks for a bit more*

oh yes within how can i put some of the videos i have made onto it?

any answers are greatly appreciated :black: my mothers partner is getting a 30gb next week and i will need to show him how to use it all also. oh how fun that should be; NOT!

but no, thankyou to anyone who can help me out.
QUOTE Thanks

You should set up some albums in iPhoto maybe one called ipod or something and drag your pics in. Then in iTunes with your ipod hooked up go to preferences in itunes then click on the iPod icon in the preferences there should be a photo tab click it and check the albums you want to sync. When its done it will start to convert your pics for your ipod and put them on.

I'll take the first question then:

You can only access the songs on the iPod through iTunes, they are hidden from the Finder on the iPod itself...

By default it will mirror the content of your iTunes library, if you want to choose the content yourself, go to iTunes preferences and switch it to manual sync.

I'm not sure on a Mac, but in Windows, if you uninstall iTunes and set up so hidden folders can be viewed, then there should be a hidden folder in your iPod in File Explorer with ALL of your songs.

Or you could just use freeware available on the 'net. Google it! :headphone
