Is it true that you cannot use multiple computers to import music to your iPod? My friend filled her's up using my Mac Mini, then tried to import some more music from her home computer. She said all the old music she got from my computer was erased. Is it that you cannot use an iPod between multiple machines (raw deal if this is true), or perhaps she wrongly instructed her iPod to psynch with her library?

If you want to use Automatic Syncing, then iTunes will only work with one computer. Each time to plug it in to another one, it will prompt you to erase and fill up from the new one (this is probably the prompt where your friend clicked "yes").

If you set the iPod to use Manual Syncing, then you can load songs from as many computers as you want.
