Every programme I've found so far will only let me copy a limited amount for free. I'm using a Mac btw.
Use it as a giant USB stick
the only thing I could find was Music Rescue
It only lets you copy 50 tracks at a time before it pops up with a advert telling you to buy the full version, but I just minimised it and got on with reading some articles or something and skipped through the ads whenever they popped up. It copied 7000 tracks without it getting too annoying, so hopefully you dont have masses more than that ...
as long as you've got something else to do that allows you to stay and skip the ads it should work fine.
Loving my new Mac so far but man, Jobs really doesn't make using an iPod easy ...
I got a Macbook Pro a while ago and use that primarily so my iMac is basically a glorified TV at the minute so I'm getting rid of it but that's what all my music is on.
I've just paid £35 for a cable to run my Macbook through a TV to replace the iMac just through Apple's refusal to put normal outputs in their machines. I bloody love the products but I really wish they were less cynical in their business models.
i wanted to watch films and stuff through my TV, but I'm pretty sure the guy in the shop said you pretty much need an HD TV for it to work without having to buy yet *another* adapter.
I'm worried that i've pretty much been sucked into the Apple world now, can't see myself going back to Windows, financial issues aside.
It's not an exageration in the slightest to say that something about it drives me nuts every time I have to use it.
You need an adapter for HD TVs as well though or at least a specialist cable, big pain in the arse.
went from being a novelty to being pretty much indispensable.
I think i'll bow out now before this gets too fanboyish, but I think i made the right choice with my switch
*Selfishly relating this thread to own week old technology-recommendation thread*
Then you can drag and drop as freely as you like. It's just people with Macs that have less options here.
I have all of my music on my iPod at all times therefore my computer also always contains all my music for the purposes of syncing new stuff.
but you change the settings on your computer to 'show all files' then c + p into 'automatically add to itunes'
JaguarPirate with the best suggestion yet but that involves closing a pop-up every 50 songs. I'm certain I've used a free programme that did them all with no stoppages before, no idea what it was called though
it's, like, really easy.
record your whole library using a minijack to minijack cable in audacity. and then reimport it as a single file.
But in this case I've not a clue. Have you tried that Apple Lounge or whatever forum for iPod stuff?
worked alright for me, it's completely free software as well, and there's no limit as far as i know on how many tracks you can copy
None of the faffing around you get with merely normal PCs like the plebs use.
HOW CAN SHINY BE WRONG!
No problems at all.
