I gifted an iPod this christmas and wanted to be a nice guy and filled it with the recipient’s requests for music. These were either from my own Amazon DRM-free library or iTunes store bought specifically for this iPod.
Although registered to recipient we now cannot change “linked” computer without deleting entire contents and doing a reset.
How do we backup first? This recipient has Windows and I did everything as Windows (Mac running Parallels and XP).
