    iPhone backup question

    When I click on "Full Backup of your iPhone" to my home computer, does it really back up everything on my iPhone, including all my songs? Or does it just backup my playlists and then relies on my iTunes library to get the songs back should a Restore be necessary? I could either situation...

    iPod line out and volume control

    When connecting an iPod to a stereo system using the line out (not the headphone jack) I know the iPod volume control does not affect the volume coming out of the speakers. You must use the stereo/head unit volume control for that. Does the iPod volume level have any effect on the line out...

    Upgrading iPhone 4S to iOS 6.01

    Hi - when the upgrade to iOS 6.01 is done will I be left with an essentially factory fresh iPhone 4S that I'll have to set back up to my liking or will the upgrade finish and my email and apps be as they are now? I'm guessing the former but hoping for the latter. TIA

    iPod Classic 160GB troubles

    iPod Classic 160GB Purchased new, May 2010 Three days in a row I've had a problem where I can listen to it all day at work (about 100 songs) and turn it off when I'm done. Then later when I get home and want to sync, it just gets stuck on the Apple logo screen forever and won't sync. So I try...

    Skip Count head scratcher

    I don't think Skip Count is working properly for me. There's no way I have skipped songs thousands of times! Seriously, I have songs with skip counts of 2,316 and 2,313 (play counts of 19 and 17 respectively). That's madness. I have 193 songs with skip counts greater than 1000. Again...

    Using smart lists, is there a way to identify multi-disc sets?

    Title pretty much says it all. I'm trying to figure out how to identify multi-disc sets using a smart playlist. The muti-disc sets in my library are tagged as disc # of #. It's easy to get discs 2 and higher by simply using the criteria "disc number is in the range 2 through 10" for...
