THe only reason that I don’t have the majority of my stuff on the computer is because I reinstalled windows on my desktop thinking it would clean everything up. Long story short, I not can’t get online with my desktop (no driver included in the reinstallation discs!), so I’ve been on my laptop, which was basically completely empty.
I didn’t think I’d be getting a new Ipod for the holidays. Also, These are music files that I imported from CDs over the years, not purchased from ITUNES, so I don’;t think transferring the authorization will work… geez, such a hassle, makes me just wanna return the damn thing.
Ugh, you know what, I’m with you. I’m very technically inclined, and even I think it’s absurd that iTunes does not contain a simple “click here to transfer files to your new iPod” button. It isn’t simple to do, and it should be.
I can think of possible solutions, but I am NOT entirely sure they will work, as I only have one iPod and can’t test it, and I don’t want to waste your time with something that might not work. Sorry.
If you’re still stuck after a day, I can help you out. My nephew has an iPod, as do I, and I can test out a way to move the files between both. I can’t try it now, since he doesn’t have his iPod cable with him.
