I'm currently running my Ipod classic on a windows xp desktop and (due to space problems) using my Ipod as a external hard drive.
I.E, adding music to Itunes, manually adding it to my Ipod and then deleting it from Itunes. However, I'm going to buy a new (vista) laptop and wondered how can I retrieve all the music off my Ipod and sync it with my new laptop.
Also, any idea how I can move all the Photos from my Ipod (which I have saved as full resolution pictures) to my laptop??
Any help or advice greatfully recieved.

I accidentally synced my mac's contacts with gmail, and added 4000 unwanted contacts. I manually stripped them out, turned off gmail syncing, and now I get an "unknown error" from itunes when syncing with my iphone, and a "syncing contacts will add 4000 (or so) contacts" message ... even though those people weren't showing up in my contacts app. [more inside]

Can I two-way sync GCal with my iPhone? I'm using a PC and don't have iCal or Outlook. Free methods would be best but I'd be willing to pay for something good.

I have imported three DV tapes into Final Cut and they are all out of sync, by what seems like 1 second (but maybe less?). It's out of sync in the viewer, out of sync in the timeline, when I render it, and when I export it. [more inside]

While waiting for the new iPhone, I sold my old one. Now I'm back on a Cingular (HTC) 8125 with Windows Mobile 5 (it can't be upgraded to 6!) And I want to make the best of it without spending any money. I'm on a Mac, so I need to figure out the best way to deal with that, too. [more inside]

I've read this
and a bunch of other sites. I've got a Mac Pro and a Powerbook I'd like to share home directories over, but I'd rather not purchase OS X Server or get a small machine up and running Linux to deal with authentication (LDAP). Anyone authenticate locally, but still use the portable home directories?
Alternatively, anyone just unison their entire /user/ directory?

I've just bought a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000
, which comes with the matching mouse (8000). It works great with my Windows XP computer, as long as the computer is on. Once I switch the computer off and attempt to restart, the Bluetooth connection is lost and the computer won't start, citing the lack of a keyboard as the reason. Only by repeatedly fiddling and resynching can I get the computer started up. Can anyone suggest how I bond these three devices in permanent holy matrimony?

I'm using a Macbook with Tiger (10.4.10) installed and Missing Sync 5.1.2 (140) installed. When I sync my Treo 650 to iCal, my events in both places (Mac/Palm) show up in the wrong time zones, so the times are wrong. I've never been to exotic places like Havana, Montreal, or Indianapolis, so this won't work for me. [more inside]
