    hi guys i recently purchased the ipod video. i got it to sync properly the first couple of times i imported music into it. i later purchased an external hard drive for all my media. i am a pc user unfortunately. i also use a laptop if that helps. now that my music is on the external hdd my ipod will no longer sync with itunes. how would i be able to fix this. itunes works fine as far as being able to play the music is concerned. i hope you guys can help me with this to i dont have to move my documents folder back onto the internal drive of my comp and return the externall hdd.

    thank you very much.

    Is the laptop plugged in? Maybe your USB isn't getting enough power considering it's doing the transfer from the drive to the iPod simultaneously. Even if it is plugged in, the bus may still be underpowered unfortunately. :(

    Can I recommend an iBook? :D

    The iMac is a much better machine but you've got the disadvantage of an all-in-one. I have an iMac G5 and love it though. :)
