    My daughter got a new iPod and gave me her old one. Nice kid - especially since I bought her the old one, and the new one. :)

    Anyway - how do I go about renaming my "new" iPod?

    u mean on the about screen/ when it appears in itunes? double click, like renaming a playlist, hit enter. it reverts to the old one for a second, then changes to the nu one, at least in intues 5.0. havent tried yet in 6.0

    Just name it "iPod." I hate when people mooch music off of me and their iPod mounts as "DiCk'S pUbE sTyLiN' tUnEs!!!"

    While it's plugged in, doubleclick slowly. Name away.

    Got it

    Thanks to all for the input - I had tried to "just click and change" but it didn't appear to work the first time. Went back and got the job done.

    Note to BurtonCCC - couldn't agree more, but I did add my name - Jims iPod - to differentiate from others.
