Say I've got 500 songs on my computer. Then I put all of them on my iPod. Now, to save room, I want to take off 300 of those songs from my computer in order to save space and make my computer run faster. Is it possible for iTunes to not automatically delete these songs from my iPod each time I want to add more songs to my iPod? In other words, now that I've got 200 songs on my computer, iTunes usually will want to update my iPod and delete those 300 songs from my iPod. Is it possible to not let this happen, and only keep adding songs my iPod without those 300 songs being deleted from my iPod?
Hi Berny, I just purchased an U2 ipod and I was wondering if theres any way I can transfer my sisters music of her ipod into mine. I tried it by pluging in my ipod to her computer but it replaced all my songs with hers and I want both. If there is any way I can get her music added on to my song list on my ipod or my itunes please let me know Thanks

I would like step-by-step information for copying my entire I-Tunes library (Windows) plus all the other things I would need to run it on a new external hard drive. My laptop hardrive is almost full and I want to free up space and operate i-tunes from the external drive.
I have already clicked and dragged on the I-Tunes icon from my desktop files, did a copy and paste of my library (but it only copied some and I have 11.5 GB) and I have clicked "Export Library" from I-Tunes to the I-Tunes Music folder I created in my external hard drive. I think I've not completed what needs to be done or I've done it incorrectly. My external hard drive is SimpleTech 160 GB. I've read posts on here from the past about the preferences (for after all my info is copied to the external drive).
I followed the steps in the apple.com page that I posted above, but when I open in E Drive (my external hard drive), it does not look like i-tunes. It's a lot of folders with the names of the artists. Does this mean I cannot use this instead of the i-tunes on my C drive? I would like to eventually delete the one on my C drive, but as it is now, I think I would lose my ability to add songs and sync. the ipod.
I recently bought an ipod. I spent a good deal of time putting music and podcasts on it. I got to a point where I wanted to delete what was on itunes on my hard drive, not realizing that after I did that itunes would also delete everything on the ipod when it was updated. Oy! But a number of the albums and my audiobooks rest in My Music in Windows. They are there. But I can't figure out how to copy them and send them to itunes. Can anyone help? phil
P.s. Is there anyway to tell itunes not to delete stuff off of the ipod until I tell it explicity?
On my iTunes i have checked the box that says "updated checked songs only". This is what i want but i would still like to play the songs that are unchecked off my computer but it will just skip them if i am playing a group of songs. is there anything i can do?
I have recently downloaded the new iTunes 7.0 and after I connected my iPod to the computer all of the songs that i played were fuzzy. Then I noticed that the iTunes was doing it too. At first i thought it could be my iPod battery failing as I have had my iPod for a while but now i am not sure. Can anyone help me please?
So I just put every ITunes file I had on my new external hard drive. Now my ? is how do I add a new file using only 1 USB port? Do The external hard drive and Ipod have to plugged in together or is there a way around this?
scuse me im having a problem with my itunes everytime i opened my itunes,the system most likely would crash i never had any kind of this problem before it just occured suddenly out of nowhere can you please help me mr.berny?
i put all my itunes on my laptop, i was then brought a new laptop so transferred all my songs to an external hardrive to transport over to my new laptop but when i try to play some of the songs on the laptop from itunes a message says that the song cannot be found, although when i look on the ipod itself the song is there and plays?????
Why do some of my songs in Itune library doesn't sync into my ipod..? my frns told solution that is Make sure all the song's that are listed are actually on your hard drive because itunes lists songs even if they are deleted. The way you can tell if this is happened there should be a explanation mark on the song name.Another thing is make sure all the songs are checked in the little blue box.If none of this works look at your ipod options and make sure "Automatically Sync My Songs" is enabled.iPhone 5 Release Date
