Hi,

I have an ipod touch thingy whatsit, with plenty of music stored on it. My computer has since been restored and I have created a new playlist with new music that I have never had on my ipod.

Can I add this new playlist to my ipod without deleting the existing music?

Thanks!!

Hi!

I meant itunes - I didn't know you could use anything else for ipods!

You can lol, apple just encourages you to use itunes.

You probably can, can't you just pull the music over?

If they're mp3 files they should be added to the library automatically

Oh I just love that.

You PROBABLY CAN

Does this mean you might be able to? In the event a person takes your advice and loses all other music on the thingy I assume you will take responsibility and restore the thingy with all data.

What does pulling the music over mean?

In itunes you cant just drag and drop the music over. There's this "sync" thing which involves clicking a box which says something like

"would you like to add the selected libary/playlist? Doing so will erase all data on the ipod and replace it with selected library/playlist"

Or something. You get the idea.

Puzzling.

You can try using something else, like Sharepod:

And here's a tutorial:

Before you restore your OS next time if you back up C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Music\iTunes folder and put it back to same location when restored, it will retain iTunes playlists that you originally had.

Oh install iTunes on the new install first, then just copy that folder back.

I have a old 4th generation ipod and never had a problem doing that. However why not do a test on one tune that you do not care whether you lose it or not. Then there is no risk.
