    Hello i have two questions to ask about iTunes:
    1) If i buy tons of songs via my Apple account on iTunes on 1 PC, will i be able to get them all in another pc with my acc if it burns, for exemple?

    2) I have recently bought the new ipod shuffle and i passed many songs into it, but i am not able to delete them because their names appear in grey. Do i have to select the option: Mage manually, but if i do that, will it stop auto-sync?

    Thanks

    Hey there.

    1. You can transfer your songs from one computer to another. See this link:

    2.The best way to sync an iPod (in my opinion) is to create a playlist with all of the songs that you want on your iPod, and then sync that playlist with your iPod. After you create the playlist and add songs to it, plug your iPod into your computer, and then select it in the sidebar. On the top, click the "Music" tab. Click the circle "sync only selected ..." and then select the playlist you created from the list. See this link:

    Hope that helps!

    Drag the items from Home Sharing to your music library in the sidebar. You are talking about Home Sharing, right?

    Thanks and yes, i was. But if i want to get the songs just in the distance or if pc burns and i lose everything, just by my apple ID, is that possible?

    Yes it is possible. If they are all purchased from iTunes, you can follow the instructions in this link.
