Welcome to the 21st Century...Got an iPod

Ok, so I have some questions...

I bought the 30GB (holy hell is that a lot of space....) iPod....
So far I love this thing. However, it has one MAJOR fault that I can see....I can't get my iTunes library on my work computer without having it open on my home computer....even when I synch my iPod.

Can those files on my iPod be played through my computer? I am frustrated.

Secondly, is there a way to stop a song? I know you can pause and reset the iPod but thre doesn't seem to be a way to stop a song. It just sits there on pause....my "manual" if you can call it that, doesn't have the answer....I don't want to call iPod support for that.

Help oh iPod guru's out there....

Now you know I can't answer any of those questions....but I have one of my own, if you don't mind me tagging along...

30GB - holy hell that is a lot of space....no idea how many songs that would translate to, but I know it's a lot.

If you filled all that space, it would seem you could listen to songs 24/7 for a long long long long time before repeating. Like years?

Why does one need so much memory?

ok, why would you want 15,000 songs?

Doing some quick math, assume a song last 5 minutes....is 75,000 minutes. divided by 60 is 1,250 hours, divided by 24 hours is 52 days.....365 days in a year....

If you listened to your ipod 24 hours a day for an entire year, you would hear 1 particular song 7 times. If you "only" listened 8 hours every day, I think you would hear the same song about twice in a year.

Isn't that kinda.....well.....ridiculous?


not wanting an ipod bella, just the vast numbers. I don't get it.

I didn't either, which is why I didn't spend the extra $100 for the "top o' the line" one.

Long drives and the shuffle feature. Never hear the same song twice. It is rather nice.

Yes.

Do I need a seperate hook up? Or do I need to be connected to my home computer to "share" my iTunes?

Get Senuti(itunes spelled backwards). It is free. You can play music directly off of your ipod or transfer music from your ipod onto another computer. You will need to have your ipod hooked up to your computer then open up senuti. Your music will show up in the senuti windo (it looks just like an itunes window). I don't think it has a shuffle function but you can make playlists and stuff.

Cool. It just sucks because if you have more than one computer (like one at home and one at work) you can't use them both without having them linked.

What you can do is enable your ipod as a hard drive (let me know if you need directions for this).

Then copy over your music folder to your ipod. You will be able to access these files from your computer at work. You can either copy them over to your work computer and then trash the folder on your ipod.

Does that make sense?

Found one for Windows Pod Player

I'm not sure how well it works but it should do the trick.
