>Hi Rob,

I can't answer all your questions, but I can answer some.

The easiest way to charge the iPod is to reboot into the Apple
firmware first (assuming the battery isn't completely dead and you
can do this). Then it should work from the charger just fine.

I wouldn't recommend uninstalling iTunes. You might want to load
Audible content at some point. But when I needed to completely
uninstall and reinstall iTunes once, an Apple tech support person had
me use Add/Remove Programs, then delete my iTunes folder from Program
Files. This did not completely uninstall iTunes, however, because
when I reinstalled, I didn't have to rebuild my library, and some of
my settings carried over. But it is close to a clean uninstall.

My only suggestion for the problem of losing your settings is to turn
off the iPod immediately after getting the settings the way you
want. This should ensure that they are saved.
