Mac voes i call it, i have some 35 GB of music in ipod and i dont dare to sync it with any of my PC's, i just plug in the pod to comp and play direct using itunes. Any new files i get in the comp just transfer one way to the pod.

Last weekend sorted some 200 odd tracks which didnt have any tags/titles, another "i dont know how much" to go through.

Stupid steve and bill!!

Steeroid, it is really a question of some grunt work. I asked a kid to help me (some 24 year old whiz kid) and he had no idea what my music was all about. Now when he saw multiple album art he did not know which one to choose so I relaised that this is something we need to do ourselves.

Viper you are way ahead of me on this computer stuff and I think if you really take some time out of your busy schedule it shouldn't be so much of a hassle.

BTW I have found the guys at hydrogenaudio.org really really helpful. One guy (Synthetic Soul) even spent a week of his holiday writing an automatic script specifically for my needs.

3> E drive - 88GB (13GB free)
4> F drive - 180 GB (178GB free)

I have 2 Hard discs 120Gb & 360Gb. How do I increase capacity of "c" drive without formatting it if possible

My problem is by default settings all downloads/programs & music get saved to "C" drive which keeps getting full. I have transferred all the pictures & videos which occupy a lot of space to "E" drive. I observed that Itunes (My Music was occupying approx 4Gb.

How do I shift the My Music to say "E" drive and make sure that all future music downloads and additions get saved there.

Will appreciate all the help.

Viper

I think that you are using Windows Vista.Do this:
Right Click on Computer and click on Manage
On the left pane, go to Storage and click on Disk management.
Right click on the partition you want to modify and then select shrink volume.

This has worked on Vista. I have personally done this.
Here you can either shrink or increase volume of Drive C:

Have any of you downloaded the latest iTunes 8? Comes with a "genius" feature that recommends songs based on what you are listening to. Look at the sidebar on the right and how it has made suggestions based on Def Leppards C'mon C'mon!! Obviously to tempt you to buy songs from the itunes store, but it's just so damn apple-cool. The genius can also generate automated playlists based on what song you are listening to. Apparently it only gets smarter with time (studying playlist combinations from across the world!)

Oh my GOD! It's alive!
Jokes apart - there is a free utility called Music IP mixer- been around for a while - this does pretty much what genius does. This also has a ITunes plug in.

I listen to songs on last.fm and it recommends the songs just according to listening preferences.
