THANKS FEDEX!! My iPod Photo had a delivery date of Nov 3rd but it's in my hot little hands right now!! For those wondering exactly how iTunes syncs up the photos, the iPod panel in the iTunes preferences gains another tab ("Photos") that looks like this: You can choose you iPhoto Library and albums, with the option to choose only certain albums (just like Music syncing) or you can choose any other folder of pictures on your computer. Looks as if (as expected) the iPod does change the pictures to some super-secret iPod format for iPod & TV viewing, since the option of saving the full resolution pictures is a separate checkbox below, and clearly states that the full-res photos will be accessed from disk mode. So I'm betting that's where the Belkin Photo Reader pics still land...until Belkin and/or Apple update the software to allow instant download and viewing of pics from a camera. I'm syncing right now...7800 songs and 6800 pics...more on how this works later!!
