It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.

Having hard time registering my ipod touch everytime I hook it up it tells me camera connected, what amd I doing wrong?


Dear letsneuk, (I hope your not Dutch/Flemish :] )
iPhone's/iPod Touches DO NOT work as an external (flash) drive wich Windows sometimes detects as camera's.
Download iTunes instead, to sync your music etc. here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
Good luck. And kind regards, FriskYR.

Ipod music is gone, but still says it has stuff on it


If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.

If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from C:programfiles.......to your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.

Hope this helps

You Itunes purchases have to be restored to the hard drive as well. Otherwise you will have to repurchase them. Itunes doesn't allow you to copy your purchased songs from your Ipod into the library on your hard drive. You can play them from Ipod as long as you enter you Itunes account information. Make sure your Ipod is set to manually manage music or you will wipe out the songs.

you can have more than one library on the same system.. hold down the Shift Key while you launch the itunes application.. this will allow you to create a new library or choose from those you already have.

Music on iPod stops randomly and skips to next song


turn every program but itunes off. your firewall is interrupting your sync. close all programs or turn off your anti-virus and firewall so nothing can interrupt. keep me posted with results.

Did you place the music on your iPod via iTunes, or just drag and drop to the device?

The music must be added through iTunes, or the iPod will just act as an external hard drive--storing your music, but you can't play it.

If you just dragged and dropped, take it off your iPod, start up iTunes, then add the music that way.
