Hi everyone, new user here. I've been using PCs for quite some time now and am well versed with their uses. I've decided to get a laptop for college use and went with a 12 in. powerbook instead of the PC laptop. I also have a 10 GB iPod that I've been using for the last year with my PC.
Can I use my iPod with both the PC and Pbook to: A. transfer files between the two and B. update music on the iPod with mp3s from both the powerbook and the PC.
iPods are automatically set to update your music so it is just an exact copy of the iTunes library. Unless you have the exact same libraries it will erase all the other songs that don't match. Set it to do it manually and you just drag over the songs you want and it doesnt erase anything
So wait....I'm confused. If I already have an iPod that I've been using with one computer and hook it up to a new computer, do all the songs automatically disappear, or is there a way around this? Stupid iTunes won't let you disable the "Auto-sync" feature unless you have an iPod plugged in. Can you simply import songs from the iPod and add them to your library?
You can plug in the iPod and just cancel the automatic update as soon as it pops up and it won't erase all of the songs..Then set the music management to manual and you can manually add and delete songs on all the computers you connect to
