another I-Pod ?

3 posts in this topic

Here is another question for all you I-pod owners. My wife and I have our own I-pods and have downloaded a lot of music, audiobooks..etc to our home computer over the past couple of years.

I am thinking it would be a good idea to back up our collection and I am wondering how others have done this. I-tunes does have a "pop up" saying I should back up my collection and tells me to insert a disk and make copies. This would take a ton of discs and a whole lot of time...as we have about 1000s items to copy.

I assume I could buy a external hard drive or memory drive and do it that way....has anyone done this? Is it pretty easy....copy and paste sort of thing?

Thanks.

Cliffy.

The wife and I just did this... forgett what she bought though.. its like an external hard drive that hoos up through the isb port.. was only like $50... and held our 3000 songs quite easy with lots of room to spare.

Western Digital (I'm sure there are many brands) makes external hard drives, ranging from 120GB to 500GB (and much larger)....They simply plug into your existing hard drive. I bought a 250GB a few months ago to back-up and also free up space on my hard drive. IMO, this would be the way to go...they're relatively inexpensive for the amount of "space" you get.

Very easy to transfer from one to the other.

Good luck!

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
