Hi guys, I’m new here! Just wanna say hello and hope to gain some experience from you. I wanna download some new music but my ipod is almost running out of space. I really don’t wanna delete the old songs, so can I backup them to my computer? Do you have any experience?
You can call the apple help desk - they walked me through doing it the opposite way (we downloaded from the computer to the ipod). I'd walk you through the steps, but I cannot remember. It wasn't that hard and if I can do it - you should be able to.
Are you using iTunes?
Is your music library currently on your computer?
If so you just need to change the settings in iTunes for your ipod to manually add music rather than adding your entire library. Under that setting, you can delete music from your ipod without deleting it from your computer library.
Yep, that's how I do it. And iCloud. And backup to disc. And to an external HD.
(I'm a little paranoid lol)
