iPod help

I have a ton of songs on my iPod. Somehow 3/4s of them were erased from my computer. Now if I sync it they will be lost. Is there a way to transfer all my songs from the iPod to the computer??

I believe you can do it. Make sure before you hook it up that you have your settings so that you manually manage your music. That way it will not sync, and remove the songs from the ipod.

Another Ipod ?....

I have a boatload of songs on my external hard drive. Is there any way that I can have Itunes automatically update when I add new songs to the external? I've tried searching for answers online, but I cannot find anything.

There are a bunch of freeware apps that will download songs from your ipod to your pc and then into itunes. Like was said above though be sure to have auto-synch turned off (I'm not sure why anybody would want that on). For the freeware apps just use your favorite search engine for "download songs from ipod to pc" and you should get a good list.

Hoggs,

You can just drag and drop songs from your hard drive to itunes. Just open the folder that contains the songs on your hard drive in Windows Explorer (assuming Windows) and then highlight all the songs and drag them to your Music folder in itunes and drop them.

Hope that helps.

If the songs are still listed in I-tunes they won't be lost when syncing even though there not on your computer anymore.

Yes just make sure the external HD is connected and you have the New songs loaded into I-tunes.

My external is always connected. How do I get Itunes to automatically update when I add new songs to the external. I could manually update all, but then don't I duplicate them?

No you don't duplicate them in other words they won't be copied to your computer from your external HD which you are trying to avoid to save space on your PC I presume.

OK, sounds like we have some I-pod pros here! My two kids have I-pods and very different music tastes. Can you set up different libraries so the 15 year old boys songs don't overfill the littel I-pod shuffle for the 8 year old girl who wants Hannah Montana instead of whatever garbage the boy listens too????

PS: Sorry to hi-jack the thread...

Lawdog, just make sure that you have I-tunes set up to manually manage your music. Then after they download the songs you just manually drag them over to their i-pod. Wife and I both have our I-pods and we have both have different tastes in music. Just set up different folders for each kid to put their music in.

hoggs,

Not sure why you have your music on your HD and in itunes; you are taking up double the space. If you have some reasons then forget I said that.

Yes you can manually synch your HD songs to itunes and when itunes runs into the first duplicate file it will ask you if you want to skip or replace, choose the one you want.

law,

Like Matt said just set up different folders; itunes calls them Playlists. Then you can drag and drop the songs you want from the library music folder to whichever playlist you want.

No we are not taking up double space using an external HD I-Tunes doesn't make a copy of the music from the Hard Drive unless you go into preferences and check "make a copy of music" having our music on an External HD does a couple things one it saves space on the laptop I have 175 gigs of music and my laptop is only 60gigs and some people are using older computers with smaller Hard Drives so an External is a must......and if someone else wants some of my music you can just hook up the External to there PC.

Sorry, I'll clear it up... I only have the songs on my external. For some reason, my songs are doubling up in itunes. I'll have 2 or 3 of the same song for multiple cds in itunes

You can just delete the multible songs from your LIBRARY.

It won't delete the actual song from your External Drive.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
