iPod Syncing :::

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Was wondering, does the ipod sync to what's on the computer? or does the computer sync to what's on the ipod? or can you choose?

also: if i deleted a song off my PC, but it was still on my iPod, will the ipod put that song I deleted back onto my PC?

um i can only speak for Macs... but no the iPod will not put that song back, you must use one of the aforementioned "hacks" to do it for you--NOTE you MUST do this BEFORE you sync the iPod or you will LOSE the song you deleted (if it is not on the computer, it will be deleted from the iPod...)

of course you could always switch the prefeences in iTunes to "manual mode" but you still wouldnt be able to get songs off the iPod without the hack, but songs wouldnt be deleted unless you deleted them yourself...
