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!

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
