    I loaded all songs onto ITunes at apple lossless and have now used up all my hard drive and IPOD memory. I have converted all tunes to AAC 320 but this hasn't made a difference. I have begun deleting large numbers of songs however many things are going wrong and the long and short of it is that I want to uninstall ITunes and reload all my songs at a lower rate.
    My concern is the 20+ songs I have bought - is there anyway of keeping them or will I loose them?

    Can't you copy them onto a CDrom or DVDR? Failing that a usb memory stick?

    We had the same problem and now have a flip 2 disk (Amacom) that has all the songs on. It also means that we can share it between 2 laptops. Hubby uses the main iPod, I mostly use the shuffle. Have iTunes on both laptops and share the flip 2 disk between the two. Sorted :smashin:

    smelly (can't see any other name - no offence)
    Can you tell me what a flip disc is please?
    Am in process of moving bought songs onto CD. All other songs will have to be loaded again.
    Thanks

    Its a portable hard drive, connects via PCMCIA. Various sizes, there's a 10gb one on IT Trading for £39.99. Not sure what they're like to buy from though. Can't remember where we got ours sorry.

    EDIT: Here the official Amacom website.

    And no worries about calling me smelly....everyone on here does :D

    Ok I give in. I have removed ITunes, downloaded it again - used a CD Rom to put back my bought songs. Now have another problem - evben when there were no songs on the IPOd is was saying only 9.9G available even though no songs! Even ITunes is saying 8.65G used when I click on IPod section of ITunes.
