Ok try to follow me on this.. I have several cd's I want to rip to put into my iPod. Now everytime I rip a cd it stores it in the library in Itunes. After that I create a playlist on my iPod with the name of the cd and drag the songs from the library to the Ipod playlist and it stores the songs there. Now after that I want to be able to delete the songs from iTunes library so it does not take space on my powerbook's hard drive. But once deleted from iTunes the songs on the iPod disappear.. Can anyone help?? Thanks guys!
