Hey Guys, I was showing a co-worker that he didn't have to use the sync function with his ipod. He didn't know he could just manually manage his music because he's always used the Sync function. I myself have never used sync simply because my library is too big for my ipod. So after I unchecked his sync function, itunes proceeded to delete everything from his ipod. Is that normal? What was wierder is that I still couldn't manually manage his ipod. I couldn't drag songs from his library to his ipod. One thing I will say is that his library is stored on an external USB drive that he takes between home and work. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks!
