    I recently bought a 30GB iPod, and I gave my mom my old iPod mini. I want to delete all of the songs on the iPod mini, so I can put the music she wants on it.. is there any way I can delete all of the music off of that iPod, yet still have all the music in my iTunes, because I still want that music on my new iPod. I have no clue how to go about doing this.. help??

    In Applications > Utilities, run the Apple iPod Updater. With the iPod mini plugged in, select "restore."

    Removing the songs from the mimi will not erase the songs from your iTunes library. If all your music is in your library, simply reformat the iPod.

    In Finder, choose Applications from the Go menu.

    Yeah, that'd do it :)

    I believe that you should have an iPod Updater in your Start > Programs menu.
