I no longer have a Mac as my main computer, and so I had to finally break down and reformat my iPod to a Windows format so I could keep my iTunes and iPod in synch.
Well, after doing so I discovered that virtually every album I ported over from the Mac was messed up, so I pretty much deleted my entire music collection and have been reloading it from CDs.
Now, I don’t have enough albums that this is a nightmare, but it has taken me a couple of hours. I’m hoping that the re-ripping of all the songs using the newest version of iTunes will improve the playback too. I had ripped these almost three years ago originally.
