    My wife has a Sony Vaio that has Windows 7.
    She set up her iPod a few years ago on a ThinkPad.
    She wants to add new music to her iPod via iTunes on her new PC, but the message I receive is that since the music belongs to another iTunes Library, the only way is to erase the music on the current iPod and replace it with any new music she puts on iTunes on her Vaio w Win 7.
    Is there a way to keep her old music while adding new music to the new iTunes on her Vaio.
    Thanks.
    Frank

    Well, when _I_ buy a new computer, I copy all the important stuff from the old computer to the new one. Including iTunes library. There is probably a way to set up a network connection between both computers, otherwise use the "Backup" menu in iTunes to burn your iTunes library to CD or DVD.

    iRip 2

    Google "little app factory"

    Download iRip 2

    That app will allow you to copy all songs off your iPod onto your new machine. Once the music is on your new machine you can add it to iTunes. Then sync your iPod to the new machine. iTunes will prompt you to erase the iPod, go for it, because all the music is already on the machine. You can new music as well.
