RE: Ipod Video question.

Hi, Thanks for this.

Maybe I didn't explain myself properly.

All my music is on the Ipod but, instead of being in a directory called
"Music" It's in the directory called "database" which is an ipod icon next
to files.
However, when I look at the Ipod via my PC, there is a directory called
"Music" but no database.
So, it's obviously something to do with where the Ipod software is putting
my "Music" directory.
My only query is that it didn't use to be in "Database" which was empty.
I have put some of my music in "Playlists" and this is fine.

Is this any clearer.

If you mean the files icon, yeah, copy the files onto the ipod in whichever
folder you want.
Not sure what you mean by its all in the database, as if its on the database

its obviously on the player somewhere.
