    iTunes...WTF???

    Ok....now I am kind of upset/annoyed/pissed off....

    I plugged my iPod into my computer to update it, just like 2 minutes ago. I had about 1000 songs on it, and now I have 260. It automatically changed my iPod to be like my iTunes Library. (Once I put songs on, I deleted them off my computer to get rid of the amount of space it took up.) I have back ups of most of the songs I had on the iPod, but its just going to be annoying to have to reload everything.....

    has anyone else had this problem?
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    This is how it works. iPod automatically updates to what is in your iTunes Library. If you don't want the songs on your iPod, you have to set the preferences on iTunes, and then you can check or uncheck songs to update to your iPod.

    I've never locked up my iPod, but it sounds like you need to reset it:

    Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
    Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.

    When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

    ok, from the looks of things, here is what happened.

    Somehow, the iPod, got the option selected to Automatically update itself, as opposed to the Manual updating. I really don't get why it would randomly do that, seeing as how I haven't touched the iPod options in at least a week...

    Right now I am transferring all my songs back into iTunes.....ugh.
    What an idiot....

    That's an iTunes setting, and yes it's set to automatically do that by default. Make sure it's not if you reinstall or something.
