I've got a 160 gb iPod Classic with well over 100 gb of music and I would like to get an iPod Touch. Unfortunately the 128 gb Touch has not happened yet, so I am looking for ideas for dealing with a device that can't hold all my music. A couple of thoughts -- 1. I could copy "essential" playlists to the iPod and then fill in the rest randomly. The problem I see with this, though, is that if I have something like 20 gb to fill in, it's going to take a LONG time to sync the iPod every time, because the old random 20 gb will have to be replaced with the new random 20 gb. 2. I could probably get 50% more music on the iPod by using the "convert to 128 AAC" method. Question about that -- do the new AAC files just go to the iPod itself, or does iTunes make copies that are saved to the computer as well? If it's the latter, that's a whole bunch more space on my computer's hard drive that I don't want to use. Any thoughts? Any other creative ideas for dealing with this issue? Thanks.
