It is possible to take your iPod and install all tracks on a new PC or use the PC to install all tracks on a new iPod and its also a simple thing to back up all bought music ono discs, so unless you lose your pod, your PC and all back ups then you are ok.

Being a Mac user I tunes works very seamlessly for me, I do not yet have my Ipod as I don't need it quite yet. I have not yet had any problems transfering music files. I don't anticipate any with the Ipod...Cod...

Have a look at Anapod Explorer, I think that will do the job.

The IPOD probably has a better battery life than a phone playing mp3s, and definately better than an iPAQ!

I prefer to use things for their main functions, i.e I use my blackberry for phone calls and email, and my ipod for music - although I have installed linux on my ipod, and have lots of games and other utilities on it now

Thanks - will pass onto my mate.

ipaq battery life isn't brilliant but in the car I have it in a powered cradle for the satnav - I just use a line in from my car player to the Ipaq - simple.

TomTom is the best sat nav going. It can be a bit buggy but the data they use is the same as all the others - it is a lot more up to date than it was.

Mate bought a road angel - binned it and went back to his Ipaq setup - remember TomTom do stand alone GPS as well now - one of the best sellers.

Yea the stand alone I just bought is much better but still not the best, but the older stuff (by 2 years) was shit,.... nothing beats the incar stuff provided by the top names.

Tom Tom used to get their maps from 'Teleatlas' that also supplied to BMW AUDI etc, and there was no way Teleatlas was giving licence to Tom Tom to sell its 'latest' maps,.. which was a system you could buy from Tom Tom for 300 notes when the dealers charged 3k for a sat nav option in a new car from the same map suppliers!

Still its better than a map and a torch
