Well.. I'm pretty much alignling myself for a Mac..

Right now I'm listening to my Ipod.. I was looking at the beauty and then I let go a big SHIT.

I won't be able to sync my Ipod on my new mac...

Anyone knows how I'll be able to do it? If it doesn't work, I'll just bring it back to the store (I have extended warranty) and act noobish (But but.. I don't understand.. It does not sync anymore...) :p

I was confused reading it also, but the OP still hasn't replied to anyone so there is no way to help....

I think what he is getting at is that he has loads of tracks on his pc that he uses for iTunes at the moment and that he will need to re-record the entire lot onto his mac mini and was rather daunted by the thought - hence the swearing. Laughing

why not just grab a program that'll take the stuff of your iPod onto your Mac?

Okay I'll try being clearer.

I heard somewhere that iPods were "attached" to only one computer, meaning if you synced it on a certain computer, you could ONLY sync it to this computer now.

Anyway, we'll see.

WAIT! Everybody hold up! You can say SH** on here?!

Oh, yeah, and just copy all your media to Mac using whatever is available (CDs, DVDs, iPod disk drive, or like I did, over a network connection). Put your music in the iTunes folder within your music folder and reformat your iPod for Mac. Then you should be ready to go. I had no problems transfering music, photos, and documents to my mini, infact it was pretty seamless. Just make sure if you use your iPod to transfer files you enable the disk drive function. You can't just tranfer your media that was synced on there from iTunes.

I had trouble understanding your post too so I hope this is what you were talking about.

Sorry for the double post but this is not true. I used to use my iPod with my PC but I just reformated it for Mac and it works fine. Now, media that you download from iTunes may only work on a certain machine, I don't know, but iPods work with whatever computer you hook it up to (given its up to date, runs Windows or OS X, and has iTunes)

You can only sync up an ipod to ONE computer at a time.

You can however, change which computer you want your ipod to sync with any time you like.
