    I just purchased a nice new iPod Video today at the Apple Store. However, I plan on continuing to use my mini for a bit also. So can I transfer songs from my mac onto my mini and my ipod video? Or is that not allowed. Also, can I put all my old songs on the new ipod also?


    Thanks

    You can have as many ipods as you want to sync you music to.

    :confused:

    You sure about that?

    WikiPedia disagrees: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairPlay

    Also from http://www.apple.com/lu/support/itunes/authorization.html

    I understand how the limit on authorized computers works, but don't understand how they could practically limit the number of iPods. My wife already had one stolen, so we're currently on our 4th iPod.

    iMatt mini. Here's an article from apple.com on this issue: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300432

    Oops my mistake, I confused that with the number of computers you could use. Which is 5.:)

    iPods versus computers...

    Anything purchased from the iTunes Music Store can be played on up to five computers and an unlimited number of iPods (with some minor restrictions like a single playlist can only be burnt to CD seven times before it needs to be changed).

    Besides that...that's it.

    If your question is more about function, Apple just created a great site for iPod help here. I just bought the 5G, and maintain my entire library on it, and use a playlist for my old 4G that I gave to my wife.
