I just got one of those new-fangled i-pod contraptions for music listenin'. I'm not sure what model it is, but it's a pretty one! It has 30G of memory and will even take video clips (once I figure that part out).

Last night I loaded about 3 CD's onto the playlist. I plugged the i-pod into the computer and the files went over just as purty as you please. Then I deleted all of the files from the playlist on my computer. I played through some of the stuff, and it all sounded pretty spectacular.

I decided that I'd put a couple more CD's onto the i-pod (what the heck? It was still early!). So I loaded up a couple more CD's, thus creating a new playlist (on my computer).

I plugged the i-pod back in, and the new stuff loaded right up. the problem is, it OVERWROTE the previous 3 CD's.

It seems that I have to keep my playlist in tact (on my computer) - with EVERYTHING that I had on the i-pod still there before I can add new stuff. Otherwise, it seems that each time I put stuff onto the i-pod, all previous data (music, pictures, video etc.) gets overwritten.

I am sure that there is a button on my computer (or in the i-pod itself?) that I have checked or not checked (?).

There has to be a way to load new material without disturbing what's already there.

Does anybody know what steps I'm missing? I just got the i-pod last night. The "manual" that comes with it is pretty scant. You're supposed to go on-line to get the text files with all of the real information ... I guess.

But for now - does anybody know how to load new music without killing the existing files?

Thanks!

RB

Theres a box beside each song with a tick in it, i think you just un-tick it but i could be wrong. I just leave all the music on the p.c it's handy for burning compilations etc

Under the "edit" you will see the preference for your Ipod. Check to manually handle your playlist.

I was getting ready to go to vacation on a Friday and brought some cd's to convert to work. It was much faster than home, T1 speed. Had everything all done and then I looked and instead of importing the several discs that I converted to wav. it deleted the whole playlist. Some 1900 songs! Luckily I had them on my home pc and just had to reload them.

This is why it seems kind of odd to me.

Let's say that I was visiting you at your house and you had a killer ABB show that you wanted to give to me. I plug my pod into your computer to load that show and lose all of my existing stuff.

I know there's a way to add without deleting. I'm just trying to figure out how.

Hey, Rusty. I manage my ipod through iTunes. I just add songs into the iTunes library and check or uncheck which songs I want to go into my ipod. Each time you plug the ipod into the computer it will update, whether you have added songs or not, so don't delete the songs in your library. I import music from CD's and my harddrive. My ipod is just music, no video. That might be my next purchase if I hear enough good things about them. I'm not the most computer literate guy, so there might be a better explanation out there. I get alot of my computer know how from this website!

Just don't delete anything in the itunes library, this is the safest option I find, as once you plug the ipod into the PC next time round it automatically deletes all the tunes from you ipod that are not in itunes library no more.

Were Apple gets you is the 30g holds 7500 songs. Well thats 7500 songs from istore, not discs you convert, import, etc. WAV's are much larger and cannot get more than 1900 on the Ipod.

There is a function that allows you to manually update your ipod.

The default is set to automatically update your ipod from your itunes library every time you plug it in to your computer.

I can't keep 30gigs of music on my computer, so I choose the manual update. That way I can erase files from my library after I have loaded them on to my ipod.

I think this setting can be found under preferences (forgive me, i don't have access to itunes to look it up right now) I can get back to you later.

Hope you enjoy your ipod! I love mine!

A side note if you turn on the visual effects on itunes, press "Q" "A" and "Z" to change the backgrounds!

Sounds like something the RIAA would be interested in illegally searching thru your pc

Use apple lossless compression to get more space while retaining audio quality.

Great posts here, but my issue still hasn't been addressed.

I guess it's taken for granted that you'd be uploading (or is it "downloading" all material from your own computer.

If you were trying to add files to your pod from someone elses computer (the killer ABB show, for example) and you connected your pod to their computer (to their play list), then everything already on your pod would get deleted - or replaced with files on your friends computer.

I am trying to figure out how to add files to the pod without disturbing what's already there. I apologize for my redundancy.

your ipod is registered to your computer. you cant transfer stuff from your ipod to a friends computer or vice versa (helps prevent that whole theft of music thing). you still have to trade that hot abb show the old fashioned way. when you get the discs, you can import them to your ipod in mp3 format (but keep the original .wav files on disc for trading)

This is the correct solution,when you manage it manully you have to put in the songs yourself and so it does not upload them automaticly...

Now does anyone know how to upload a complete show WITHOUT the 1 second gaps between songs???

what i do i have my ipod set to manual manage i create a playlist example "ABB Live 8-14-98" then i upload to my hard drive then drag all the songs from that show into the playlist i created then just drag that playlist onto my ipod now it works great except for the gaps ...anyone have any ideas??

Can you down-load shows from FLAC or MP3 (? - 64Kbs ?) files? In other words, download the shows and then move them into the i-pod list?

Also - can AVI files be loaded straight onto the ipod?

Rusty
Everytime you plug the IPOD into the computer, it updates. Anything you have deleted from the computer will delete from the ipod. I generally keep about 4000 songs on my 30gb ipod and I figure I can put about 7000 on my 60gb. Thats with a lot of live ABB so...

I'm thinking about getting an external drive to back up the music in case of a computer crash. If you have memory issues with keeping 30 gig of memory tied up with music, then this might be a solution

I know mp3 can be directly loaded into I tunes and I think FLAC can be decompressed there and converted to apple lossless

remember it only updates automaticly if you let it switch it to manual and that is no longer a problem..

So, if I choose to update MANUALLY, I can wipe out the listing on my computer's hard drive? Not that I'd want to, unless I was fighting for drive space.

Last night I transferred another 8-10 CD's to my pod. I had left the previous tracks in place. It seems like every time that you up-date, you are essentially re-recording (or re-transferring) EVERYTHING to the pod.

I apologize if I'm making too much of this. I'm just not hearing or reading what I'm trying to find out. My skull is also lined with 3 feet of concrete.

If you choose to transfer MANUALLY, will only the items that you have checked on the I-Tunes tracklist be transferred over to the pod? IN other words, will all of the previous songs and videos still be there?

The other thing that I haven't communicated very clearly on is my interest to capture music from other computers.

My pod is registered (?) to my computer. But if I visited someone who had some songs or a show on their computer that I wanted - can I not creat a NEW PLAYLIST from their computer and then plug my pod in? Again, if I have chose MANUALLY UPDATE, will the existing material still be on my pod?

This just seems like such a basic idea to me. The manual (or pamphlet) that came with the pod doesn'f give specific and clear directions.
