Hi Gordon Which is why a little basic info in the beginning would be such an advantage. But half or less of the groundwork gives defective answers. Strangely enough my youngest has an ipod and I have no problems with it doing it the way I said.

What the original poster never said is if the end user has an Apple machine running itunes - in which case plug in the ipod and within the files menu select sync then sit back and Robert, as they say, is your mother's brother! The difficulty begins when you try and do the simple thing on a windows box and that is why friends I am sitting on an Apple mac book and have an ipod nano. :-) Regards G From glorious Devon, England.

I think my friend must know about iTunes because she does listen to music on the playher.
