It's not just for music...it's a portable file cabinet for important files.You can use your iPod as a storage device for files, documents, and other media. Our iPod for Storage Checklist shows you how to do it, with simple instructions anyone can follow.
Be aware that if you have music saved on your iPod and you connect it to a computer that does not have your iTunes library, your music/media library on your iPod will be erased. It can only be re-downloaded onto your iPod from the computer containing your music and media files.
Never disconnect your iPod while the warning icon is flashing. Always disconnect (select "eject device") through the start menu or via the iPod icon before manually unplugging the device from your computer.
