    Could you elaborate on the multiple authorized computers issue you're having?

    i just get irratated that i cant create playlist within itunes on my laptop and upload them to my ipod. Its not a big issue as the itunes software is doing what it was made to do. I just dont like the fact that im locked to one computer when i have 6 i use reguarly.

    Im just whining. Its late and im tired but i cant sleep hehe.

    yeah I hate it too - because if it is installed the only real way to remove it from system is either a backup before or a refromat - software should not dig itself in like that and make itself a pain (and IMHO iTunez does).

    Then again - I have no iPod - just an eensy weensy 512MB MP3 player.....

    the whole authorization thing is just really annoying...somehow when i changed motherboards i had to reauthorize my computer (hardware ID change?). now i'm using 2 on actually just 1 computer. there's no way to edit your authorized computers through apple, you MUST deauthorize it on the actual computer you authorized it on. they should have some list format configuration thing online for this purpose. as far as itunes itself, i'm usually a huge fan of apple stuff, but on a pc i can't see why anyone would use itunes over winamp.

    urmm, if you make it so you manage your iPod manually you can modify all the playlists and everything. And no, i dont hate iTunes, I love it. Mind you Im not using it on windows that much which could be a reason for that

    You seem to have not used iTunes. :p You can have 2 authorized machines no problem ... doing it as we speak.

    Perhaps a bit of reading the iTunes help would do you some good, none of your points are valid. :ermm:

    i am so right there with you buddy. iTunes is the most crappiest of crappiest pieces of software that i have ever let my computer run. It is really annoying in its way of syncing to your iPod. That is why i use a piece of software (even though no longer supported :() thjat works well with my iPod. It is called EphPod it is a great piece of software. It does what i want it to do when i want it. Im not a real big fan of syncing to folders so i just drag and drop my albums into the EphPod and it puts it accordingly to the iPod. :) Hopefully this helps out some people :)

    really? i read the itunes help (a few months ago), and it said the only way to deauthorize a computer is to hit the deauthorize button in itunes on the actual computer. since this computer isn't the same anymore, i can't do that. if there's a better way, please inform me.


    also i was just wondering regarding the itunes music store. is there any way you can redownload music that you've purchased let's say if you didn't back it up. i don't have this problem, but i was just wondering if it were possible given the scenario.

    I disabled the automatic synchronization before I even started adding songs to my iPod for the first time. I hate "automatic" anything; I'll take "manual" anyday (I even drive a car with manual transmission :p ).

    I believe you can just send Apple a note (from iTunes help) and they will deauthorize it for you no problem @ all.

    The thing I don't like most about Itunes is that it uses quicktime as the backbone. I hate quicktime. I think it is the most useless windows app ever made, next to real player .. I hate real player more ..
