Hi, new to ipod and all it’s features.
I currently have about ten albums (Mp3’s) on my hard drive and I already created play lists in my Ipod library like Country, Jazz,Classic Rock,etc., and the hard drive(after I drag them into my perspective ipod libraries.
80 gig. ipod is disconnected. I deleted a few albums on my hard drive,then opened up my ipod library,and those album/songs had the exclamation point next to each song and said it can not be found. So I had to re-download the albums again.
Question. After I download albums/songs to ipod, is it safe to delete those same songs from the hard drive without erasing them from the ipod when I do connect it to computer,or do I delete ONLY the songs,not the folder play lists titles on the hard drive so when I add more songs to these directories, they will ADD TO the songs already on the ipod? Maybe I should make a Data backup for all these songs in case I accidentally erase all the time and energy spent adding to the ipod. Once the songs are in the ipod, I can keep adding to them?
I also would like to add my digital camera movies and jpg pictures to the ipod too. I tries dragging into the MOVIE folder in th ipod library like I did on the songs into their play lists but it never happened. Do I have to change the file extension on these movies? I’m not downloading podcasts or Theatrical movies on the ipod. Only songs,pictures, and digital camera movies.
So it’s ok to add/mix mp3’s in addition to regular CD’s (cda’s,wav’s) in the playlist’s or is it better to convert all the mp3’s to acc files for apple? Thanks!
