    I have a great 20gb 4th Gen iPod that I use for voice memos mostly, some music on it. It is just about to run out of warranty and I want to get a new battery (it's needed it for a year) and have the hard drive checked.

    Can someone tell me how I make sure I have everything off the iPod backed up on the three Macs I own? Do I have to reinstall the iPod CD or something? Is there a two mac limit? I can't believe I'm asking this, but I really don't understand how this works, after being a mac person for so long.

    I assume it's just music you're worried about right? Well an iPod can only be synced with one(1) Mac at a time, but a program called Senuti will allow you to put the songs on as many computers as you want. It has a really easy interface and is mostly used for people who've lossed thier HD or had their Mac crash and needed to get the songs from their iPod back onto their computer without erasing everything.

    Here's the download link:

    I hope this helps/answers your question :)
