My 10gb iPod arrived this morning - yay! However, being a moron, I can't figure out the most basic of questions.

How do I use my iPod as a portable hard drive? I know it's got to be simple, but like I said, I can be a moron at times. :)

in itunes there is a preference setting somewhere...i don't know off-hand since i don't have my own ipod...but from what i remember using one before it was in itunes that i had to change that setting.

Ah. OK. For the benefit of anyone who searches for this in the future:

Select iPod in iTunes source list
Click the little iPod button down by the equalizer
Select "Use as hard drive"

Kind of roundabout, but I guess it works... :D

can you drag songs onto it and back off? or do you need one of those programs..if so, which program is good?...I plan on doing a clean install and it would be great to back everything to the pod instead of burning cd's...
