    Hi All,

    So I'm getting a new MAC tomorrow and want to know some things about the iPOD.

    HOw do I hook it up to the new MAC without losing all my songs?

    Can I hook up my iPOD to a friends computer and grab some of his songs? If so, how without losing mine?

    thanks

    just drag your friends song onto your computer and then drag it, into itunes.

    If you don't wanna lose songs on your ipod you just back up itunes, and then put the back up in the folder it belongs and itunes will not earse your songs on your ipod

    Thank You.

    Okay next question please.

    Now, I downloaded all the music from this old PC to my external hard drive.

    How can I put it into the MAC and then still be able to auto sync the iPOD without losing any music?

    What folder do I have to put it into?

    Will this even work?

    Thanks

    If your iPod is formatted for Windows, iTunes will have to reformat it for Mac.
