Dear All, I have an ipod that I has been in use in my car for several months. I've been using itunes almost as a separate product, its been months since I synched. In that time I've added music to my itunes, deleted unwanted songs, and generally reshuffeled, renamed and reEverythinged the contents of itunes. My ipod has goten a bit flakey. What I want to do is essentially wipe it clean, reinstall the OS and then push songs down. I dont want to synch since I'm afraid I'll end up with duplicates. (I spent a lot of time cleaning things up on my itunes) What is the best way to do this? Thank you all for your help. Best regards, Don p.s. If I'm missing something like a setting in itunes that says "computer overwrites ipod" instead of synchronizing, then thats good.
