iPod help

14 posts in this topic

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.

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.
