What do you mean “use it on the PC”? You can only sync from one mashine, if you chose to use another you wipe and restart, at least I’m pretty sure that’s the case it’s been a while since I changed computers.
What exactly are you trying to do? there might be another solution.
My laptop is not here and I wanted to change/edit the tunes on the ipod.
So I am guessing that I have to wipe the ipod and create a new playlist using the PC.
So the next time I plug the ipod into my laptop I will have to do the whole process again, its not a biggy I just though there might be another way and having looked at a couple of youtube video’s there seems to be a way, but its a bit of a faff….
As its a shuffle, that’s pretty much how it’s designed to work; every time you connect it it’s supposed to do a random autofill from your library, so it shouldn’t matter.
A bit different with a 160Gb Classic, though… 😀
