    Hello. I've been looking to do this, but I haven't found anything yet.

    Is there any way to sync only music, and still manually manage movies?

    It makes no sense that there's two separate checkboxes for Sync Music and Sync Movies, under two separate tabs, only to have them both get checked if you check one of them.

    Yes, I know there's a "Manually manage music and movies" box on the main tab, but that makes even less sense for having 2 separate ones.

    Anyway.... All I want to do is sync music, that's it. Movies, no. Because I delete them from the computer to save space once they've been transfered. I can always re-rip them from the DVDs if the iPod explodes.

    If there's no actual way to do it, is there some kind of similar thing I can do? Just so it's faster to update the changes between computer and iPod.

    Check "Only sync checked items"

    Uncheck the movies. ;)

    Alright, I'll try that.

    Ok, so just to be sure... Will this still let me drag and drop my movies? And if they're unchecked in iTunes, and I delete them from iTunes, they will not be deleted from the iPod, is that correct?

    Because I still want to be able to put new movies on it, but my music to sync automatically.
