I just recently purchased a powerbook. I have a lot of music files on a PC to transfer. At first I was trying to do that via network, but that is complicated and tricky. I was planning on getting an Ipod and trying to tranfer the files that way.<br>Is this possiblem, and how is it done?<br><br>
Loc: United States
Are you talking about using your iPod as a FireWire disk and transferring the files that way?<br><br>If so, just make sure you check the 'Enable Disk Use' under your iPod prefs in iTunes, and it will appear on the desktop - you should be able to copy anything you like to the iPod and onto another machine...<br><br>Hope that helps...<br><br><br>

Apple stopped producing Macs with that requirement a while ago.<br><br>
