Oops. Looks like I have put this in the Mac forum. If so, how shall I fix that?
Hi.... I have a 30GB Gen5 iPod w/video. Haven't used it in a few years but have a lot of music stored on it (nothing on it other than music). So the iPod needs upgrades and its content needs to get into my new PC w/Vista Home Premium on which iTunes is not yet installed.
Wanting to get my CD library into MP3 format (maybe 225 audio CDs) and I want a readily usable MP3 player (for music, audio books, podcasts and streaming FM radio), so am considering the 16GB Nano.
Don't want to overwhelm my computer with MP3 content so am thinking of using the Gen5 as a repository for much of my MP3'd CD collection, as an external hard drive in whatever way that is possible.
Am wondering if this is a good idea and, if so, how to proceed. Need to update Gen5 iPod, get its content back into my computer, use the Gen5 to store 30GB worth of my CD collection, get a Nano...do playlists etc...and synch the Nano with the Gen5 so that I can access the "repository" and sometimes transfer tunes from there to the Nano. Is this a good idea? Would a smooth interface between the Gen5 and the Nano be possible? How to do it?
All suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
