You can't take anything off your iPod with iTunes unless you use 'Disk Access' mode which turns a partition of the iPod into a simple HD for storage. If you want to rip music from your library back off your iPod you should try checking this out.
I recommend Mallet 2.0 , from what I understand it helps the ipod functionality more than any other program around
heh anyway, the only program I could find was http://www.redchairsoftware.com/anapod/, and im not 100% on this but I think there was an open source program alternative for itunes out there but I cant seem to find it
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
