    I tried to search the archives for my answer and there are just too many threads on iPods. Anyway, I want to add new songs to my iPod from iTunes but i DON'T want the songs that I have on the iPod (which I have deleted from iTunes) to be deleted when I try to sync it...what should I do? Any help is appreciated!! :)

    Tell iTunes to manually update songs. I think that's what it's called--my iPod isn't plugged in right now so I can't check.

    Select your iPod in iTunes, click the iPod options button, and change the synchronization management mode to Manual. iTunes won't auto-synchronize anymore, but you can now control what iTunes does when it syncs your library with your iPod.
