I have a creative nomad mp3 player, but I decided to buy an Ipod classic, because I had run out of memory. (Here comes the SAT/ACT type question.)
My Ipod holds 80 gb. I have been trying to figure out how to transfer the 40 gb of music I had on my Creative device, into my Ipod. The only way I was able to figure it out was to move the music into a Word document (my music) and then transfer it over to the Ipod. The big problem with this is by doing this I am using a buttload of memory, which my desktop doesn't have. To try to work around this, I deleted all the music I had in my desktop Itunes folder, as it was already loaded on my Ipod. Problem is now my computer thinks my Ipod is an alein device. I now get a message saying I would have to get rid of what is on my Ipod to put anything new on it. (Obviosuly this has defeated the purpose of what I was trying to accomplish.)
So here is where I could use suggestions.
How do I download the music I have on my Ipod back onto the Itunes folder?
Is there a way to transfer music from another MP3 folder into Itunes. (This is music that I downloaded off of CD's, not stuff I pulled off Napster, which I realize won't transfer.) I know I can do this by running it through a Word folder, but that middleman method takes up too much memory.
I'm actually planning on buying a new laptop, so that would help me with the problem of memory, as I should have enough to get this done. I'm a still stumped on how to put what is on my Ipod into an Itunes folder, so than I can add the previous music I have in my Creative device.
I realize that I have been going around in circles here, but hopefully someone can give me a tutorial to help me. If you would prefer emailing me the info, send it to email@example.com
Any advice on what laptop I should buy? Here are the basic parameters.
It should be under $800.
It should have a place to put a video SD card.
It should have at least a 15 inch screen.
It should have a decent reliability record.
If should have a DVD player.
Obviously, with these qualifications, it isn't going to be an Apple, so don't try to sell me that direction. I realize the advantages, but I need something cheaper and I'm hoping I can buy it at a place that will give some free financing. (This is not an absolute.)
I am aware that it doesn't look cool that I haven't posted in so long and when I finally do, it is a solitcitation from you guys. The only place I can get any work done is on the road and my current laptop has the pesky problem of clicking backwards in the middle of something I'm working on and losing everything I've written. (insert the nastiest curse words you can think of. i have.) Do know that I plan on posting a couple pieces next week. I'm in Milwaukee Thursday through Saturday, so I should have a little time. Thanks for checking in.
