Sharing my music with a friend's IPOD??

Hello,

I wanted to transfer music from my ITUNES to my friend's IPOD. I connected his IPOD to my computer --> The window came up asking me if I wanted to make my library the default for his IPOD and sync the two (or something to that effect) to which I replied no. His IPOD did show up in my ITUNES and I double clicked on it opening it up in its own window. THe problem is, while I could see all of his music I could not transfer anything from my itunes to his Ipod nor could I even play the music on his Ipod. All of his files were shown in a dim/shaded fashion.

Is there any way I can transfer songs from my Itunes to my friends IPOD?

Thanks
Rusty

The best way would be to put your friend's ipod on manual sync and enable disk mode. Drag or copy and paste your music from your computer to his ipod and then when your friend gets to his computer he can add the music to his iTunes and there after his ipod.

Thanks for the reply.

2 Questions:

1. Is there a setting on the IPOD itself that needs to be set to manual sync?

2. What is disk mode and How do I enable it?

Thanks again for your help

Read the manual that came with it. It'll tell you in simple step by step instructions.

Both manual sync and disk mode can be enabled when you are connected to iTunes...right click when the ipod pops us as a source and click ipod options. Easy as pie.

For situations like this I reccommend that your friends iPod be enabled as a firewire drive (disk mode) from the iPod preferences. Now drag music files to the iPod as a hard drive. Now when your friend get's home he can transfer the songs off of the hard drive to his home computer and the load them into iTunes. Now he can sync his iPod with his iTunes and he'll have the music. This way eliminates any changes to syncing preferences.
