    I'm starting to run out of space on my pc and want to delete all the music I have stored on it but don't want to wipe my iPod next time I dock it. What do I do? :lease:

    Well if you're using iTunes it's..

    Edit > Preferences > iPod tab > Manually update songs and playlists

    Just wait for someone to confirm that...I'd hate you to wipe the iPod !

    Have you thought about backing-up the library to a few cd's just in case ?

    In addition to what Lester said, Sod's Law dictates that the iPod will break the moment you've wiped your music off the PC. I suggest an external hard disk... not just for the music but for backing up everything else. For a budget solution, buy a bare drive and a Firewire/USB2 enclosure.

    Given the low price of hard drives, treat yourself to a new large one and add it to your existing set up. A very easy job. Or get a DVD writer and copy your MP3's onto disks as a back up medium.

    Yup, like the others said, burn to CD/DVD so you have a backup or get an external HD. They're cheap these days... :smashin:

    Thanks folks. I think I'll go down the external drive route. Probably upgrade to a DVD RW too and make some back ups that way. Especially of my photo albums.
