4gen iPod Question

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Deus Ex Aethera, Nov 10, 2004.

  1. I've got about 11GB of mp3s on an mp3 player that is about to die. I'm thinking of getting an iPod to put them on, but before I buy one I want to know if I'll be able to pull the mp3s off it again. Does the iPod lock up your music forever, or can it be removed again?

    Your iPod is synced with the songs that are on your hard drive. I think there are third party utilities to transfer songs from an iPod to a computer, but that feature is not supported directly by iTunes.

    you sure can. Just turn on enable disk mode (through itunes) when you plug it in to sync the first time, and if something fails on your hdd, you can pull your music off the ipod.

    Uhmmmm no. Thats not how it works. You have to use a 3rd party application to pull the mp3s off your iPod.

    Just buy an iRiver or iAudio MP3 player. They work just like a hard drive, no software required.

    You can use a 3rd party app, but you don't have to.

    Why is your player about to die?
