    im trying to use my old ipod mini as an external hard drive to gert all my music from my pc to my new emac...
    ive set it to be used as an external hd, and i can get songs onto the mac no prob.
    the thing is, when my pc transfers my music over to the ipod, it gets all scrabbled and mixed up!
    the ipods battery is pretty well shot, but when connected to the computers its running off power.
    can anyone tell me why the music is being scrambled? :confused:
