iPods self deleting?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was reading a recent CNN article regarding the iPod and saw something I haven't noticed anywhere before.

"Apple's version of a digital music player, iPod received raves from the tech press for its sleek style and ease of use when it debuted last year. But the music industry loves the iPod because people can't use it as a "piracy shuttle"; if users try to take MP3 song files on it and download them onto another computer, they will erase the iPod's hard drive"

iPod deletes mp3's if you try to transfer them to another computer?

They've got it confused. The iPod is designed so you can't transfer music off of it via iTunes. You can only delete music from the iPod.

If your iPod is set-up to auto-sync with a particular iTunes library, you also can't add songs to it from another computer without first erasing the contents of your iPod...
