    So I bought an Ipod off Craigs List. LOVE IT. The guy had some awesome music on it. I want to upload and add music without wiping it out. Can this be done? I remember reading that IPODS can only be used on 3 devices or something. Is this true? How can this be done? Just wondering before I mess something up. Thanks for any help

    you can copy FROM and ipod if you have the right software. itunes won't let you do it.

    try searching google for ipod software.

    actually you can copy everything off the ipod using just itunes and windows explorer. i've done it myself when my wife bought a new laptop.

    it basically involves connecting your ipod without syncing it, copying the folder that has all the music off your ipod onto your harddrive, then importing that folder into itunes. it should preserve all the song and artist names that way, and it automatically sorts all the mp3s into folders by album.

    sort of a weird workaround, but it works. just make sure you don't sync the ipod when you connect it or you'll lose everything.

    yeah, you just have to make sure the iPod can sync in harddrive mode, it's a setting you can change in iTunes, I think.
