Okay, here is my iPod plan, for those of you following my iPod saga:

I've got a copy of Senuti, which I am using to extract my stuff from my iPod (all of it, including the stuff that I own CDs for--I don't really feel like ripping it all again, when it's so much faster to just copy the AAC files back from a disc to the iPod again).

Then I am restoring my iPod--for about the third time since getting it. I don't know if this is an unusual number or not, but it seems like it to me. I dunno. It's a complicated piece of equipment, I'm sure.

And then we'll see who is the boss of this iPod.

out of curiousity, what generation iPod is it, and what trouble are you having...? even since my brother bought my 40g iPod from me (2nd gen? i think? or maybe 3rd?), he had trouble copying to/from it and it didn't want to accept his files, etc. it's currently at the Apple store getting serviced (or wherever the Apple store sends it to, anyway).

It's a 2nd gen, which is why I'm assuming that I'm having the trouble with it.

hrrmmmph. you know, they might construct them better if they didn't already know they'd be coming out with the next newest better iPod in like, 6 months. every. time. *sigh* yeah.

I am making no comment on this, other than to repeat that this is the third 15gig I've owned since I got the first one--and thank God I bought the Applecare, or I'd have been shelling out for a new one each time.

Why do you have so many audio files on your iPod that you don't have on your computer?

Well, since I do so much photo work on the computer, I need the file space for that instead of music. When I'm listening to music at home, I just plug the iPod into the computer and listen that way. That frees up 15gig of space on the computer that I wouldn't otherwise have for photos... and generally, I'm only running with maybe a gig or two of free space on the computer as it is.

Sounds like getting an additional hard disk might be a good long-term plan. :)

Oh, I've got an external that I use for backing up (and of course I burn backups as well--can't have too many backups), but... well, like I said in that parenthetical, you can't have too many backups!
