What box is it that I need to tick in itunes settings to ensure that my ipod doesn't get cleared of all it's contents when I plug it into my laptop?I have managed to clear my whole ipod before just by plugging it into a computer and am very keen not to make the same mistake again (it took a loooong to get over it!)
something to do with "Automatic Synching"i loathe ipods and my nano does everything it can to vex me
I agree that ipods are a pain I know I need to set my itunes so that my ipod does not synch with my itunes library - or something like that - but I can't find where!
I think you have to set it to disc use so it doesn't sync every time you plug it in. We have two ipods on the same computer and I didn't want DP's music being automatically added to my ipod, so I think I changed the settings.
When you plug in your ipod, go to Summary and tick Manually manage music.
Oh gawd, it's the plugging in of the ipod that I wary of. Ok, I'll give it a go
Phew! Did it and all was ok Thanks for the replies. While we're talking about itunes though, can anyone tell me how to get music from a USB disk to itunes so that it can be transferred to an ipod please?
