    How do i go about backing up all my vids/mp3s so i can format my ipod, coz lately i've been having video playbak issues (vid sound will die, untill i fastforward or rewind). I dont want to have to encode all my video again, and some music albums i dont have anymore so i cant upload again. Can i do this thro itunes or anapod?

    On a similar note, is there any way to back up iPod data from one computer so that it can be transferred to another computer and have my iPod connect to the second computer without losing all the data on the iPod since it will essentially be synching up with an empty iTunes on the second machine?

    If you set your iPod to be a portable media device, and enable hidden folders, you can just transfer your tunes and videos to your PC via Copy/Paste.

    Or you can download iTunes 7 and have it done through iTunes itself...
