I have two computers. I can't put songs from both computers on one I-Pod?

It's telling me that I have to replace the existing library with the new one?

You can't do it legally, but it can be done nonetheless

But one of my computers shuts off all the time involuntarily b/c it's full of some kind of super virus.

Care to elaborate? Give me a hypothetical situation.

You probably can't do a lot of things with that computer then.

I'd guess getting your iPod to work with it would be the least of your worries...

Seriously, get your computers running right, then mess with your iPod.

I would also back up the files on your computer that constantly reboots. You could possible have hardware failure, mainly the HD that your OS is running on.

I have lost data in the past, just being a dumbass and not backing my shit up.

My daughter got an iPod this summer. I thought the thing was pretty cool until she plugged it into my laptop and the stinkin' Apple crud invaded the computer. I had some real fun getting everything it installed off my computer and getting my music files reallocated.

If I go with a personal music player, it will be a MP3 player. 'Course for what I would use one for, I can simply use the MP3 CD player I have and just change out the library by putting another CD with 8 hours of music in.

I believe there is software that allows you to fix this issue.

Someone mentioned it in another Ipod thread.

Search the lounge and the geek forum for "ipod".

You have to turn off the autoupdate thing on your ipod.

If autoupdate is on, it will just copy the itunes library from the computer you are connected to and delete your previous music.

Once you turn the autoupdate off, just drag and drop your music from an itunes library to your ipod in itunes.

It may not be called autoupdate exactly, but that's how you do it.

HP was thoughtful enough to put their player on the laptop for me and when the iPod hooked in, the player program took over and set itself as default on everything without asking.

At least not without asking.

I hadn't either. I was NOT happy about it.

I'm so glad I've never purchased an iPod.
