    Copy music TO ipod without itunes?

    I have music in my computer and I have my friend here with her ipod. I would like to put my music on her ipod. But, iTunes appears to only give me the option to delete the contents of her ipod and sync it with my iTunes money funnel.

    I've seen many programs for partially bypassing the ipod sync racket by allowing you to copy files from the ipod onto your computer, is there something to do the opposite? Copy files to the ipod without syncying?

    You can copy the music to the harddrive part of her iPod. She can then import the songs to her iTunes library and synch with the iPod and delete the songs from the harddrive part. However: This is only legal for the music you've created yourself, basically.

    you could also use something like SuperDuper! to do a direct clone of the whole ipod across. she would have a duplicate of your ipod...

    But that would _also_ delete her iPod, so that's not a solution.

    Oh, I didn't notice that the ipod is mounted. So, I can put music files on it, but I think I don't have access to them to play on the ipod, is that right? That was what I wanted to do, to put some music on my friend's ipod so she could listen to it.

    I did also try to see if she can see the files, but on her windows machine the ipod doesn't seem to be mounted. So, I'm not sure how she gets access to the files.

    In any case this is so outrageously offensive that the thing works this way. I bought a 1G ipod nano for the sole purpose of listening to audio books while doing various things, so I didn't really think much about how all this works.

    The idea that we pay them to prevent us from having access to our own property is ridiculous. DRM must be stopped.

    I'm waiting for a small device with a simple hard drive on it, in case I want to have a portable music player some day.
