Way ahead of you. That is what I tried.
The problem is, when you go to attach the iPod to the new machine its wants to synch and wipe out everything on the iPod. Some of the music on my iPod was not on the external drive. The reason being that I bought the external drive because after my hard drive had filled up and I had deleted some of the music on the hd because I figured it was safely on my iPod.
So now, I would need to spend many hours ripping that music from cd's again.
Thanks a lot Apple.
Plus, all the playlists I set up to manage the 3 iPods in our home are wiped out too. So there would be many, many hours setting up the playlists again.
The stupid program should just have a simple "export to new machine" function. arrrggghhhh!
