Music for iPod thingy.

    Mrs Noodley has an iPod thingy, and she has a right lot of shite on it. I have started to use it when I am at the gym, on rides and in the car, but seem to spend most of my time wincing at robbie williams, take that, and other assorted pish.

    I have a few "old" favourites but I'm looking for suggestions:

    I have varied tastes: so far I have AC/DC, Saxon, Jimmy Barnes, Classical, a few folk tunes, oboe solos, Billy Joel, Madness, Undertones, Sex Pistols, but I am fairly open to most things (as long as it's not that knob Williams)

    How do you load this ipod thingy up? Can you make playlists up on the PC before you download it. I tend to make up a category, say rock. Trawl through music collection and dump favourite rock songs into the category (playlist), then load it to the player. Works far better than whole albums, well for me it does anyway.

    This Mrs Noodley present seems to have worked out quite well then. :sad:

    Stanlow-Omd
    Guns of Brixton-the Clash
    Nightporter-Japan

    Bhindi Bhagee-Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros

    Theres a nice eclectic mix would maybe also shove Metallica's 'Fade to Black' and Danzig's 'Godless' on there just to round it off.

    yes, if your using iTunes then its just drag and drop (turn off the auto sync is my advice)

    bottom left corner there is a + button, clicking this will make a new play list, drag and drop songs, albums or artists into this, hit shuffle if you want a random order of it, drag the playlist onto the iPod

    enjoy.

    oh, deleting the songs on the iPod does not delete them from the computer
     
  11. ... is the correct reaction. Apart from ripping off the headphones and throwing the iPod down the nearest well if Mr Williams so much as threatens to put in an appearance.

    Funny really, but I also reach for the off switch when Williams makes an appearance. I guess there must be many others who would disagree otherwise he would be out of work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know if you are dragging individual songs into your playlist but if you press the shift key every time you select a song it lets you drag more than one song at a time. I think :sad:.
