    not a biggie but more for my curiousity.

    I use both a Mac (w/ iTunes 7) and a PC (with iTunes 6), I wanted the option of uploading songs into my iPod using two different libraries in both my computers. But for some reason, I can't upload songs into my 5G iPod anywmore using my PC library. So what I do is I perform a manual transfer of files either via ethernet/flash drive from the PC to the Mac and uploading it via its iTunes 7 library. Not really a hassle but I'm just wondering why my iPod (although the PC library recognizes it) can't seem to accept new files directly from iTunes 6; when it worked fine before iTunes 7 came out. anyone here knows why?

    I don't want to upgrade to itunes 7 in my PC because of all the bugs that havent been sorted out in that version. oh, and all my iPods are on Windows format.

    Your iPod will be assigned to a specific library once you 'set it up'. If you want to swap libraries, it will wipe the iPod and start over (for anti-piracy, of course).

    You could make use of the library share features of iT7, but that would require you to upgrade :p The only options with iT6 that I can think of of are:

    1) what you're doing right now
    2) Make your library in a shared folder so that both machines have access to it (whether that will work cross-platform or not, I don't know)

    Hope that helps any :)
