    I have a lot of space on my HDD used up by movies that are synced to my iPod. I would like to delete them from my computer, but keep them on my iPod after additional syncs. Is this possible?

    Haha actually no. I downloaded all 4 seasons of The Office, which equals nearly 15+ gigs. I would like to have that space on my computer.

    just delete them from iTunes after syncing. youll get a syncing error popping up saying The Office was not synced or something similar every time you try to sync but dont worry about that.

    but then if you loose your iPod or it dies youll loose all your videos! so i dont think its a good idea.

    instead buy an external hard drive and store your iTunes library on that.
