1. Yes, its true you can only sync it to one computer.
2. If your computer crashes, your iPod can still be good, only if you brought all your songs off iTunes.
3. There's no way around that.
4. It syncs to whatever computer, with those songs.
ex: you have 100 songs
you buy a used ipod with 50 songs on it, as soon as you sync it to your computer, it erases the songs on the ipod and transfers your 100 songs to your iPod

So...am I understanding right? If I back up everything that I put on my ipod from now til October (when I plan to buy my laptop with wireless connection) in October when I get my laptop I can sync to that I will just lose what was already on my ipod. But can then use my music that I have backed up all along and reload? I am very sorry...I am just totally new to this whole world. Thank you for helping me out!!!!!

a very useful $50.00 spent is to purchase the online software program of CopyTrans Suite. It allows you to copy, save and transfer any iTunes library that you have to another ipod, to another itunes base and so on. It has saved me a lot a money in the long run, when I buy a new iPod, or am trying to transfer songs from one computer to another. Hope that helps.

I have the same internet issues at home. I synce my Ipod at work and, if on vac. etc., can sync at home. My home computer asks me do I want to copy what's on the Ipod to the computer. There is a vary easy back up function within I-tunes were you burn to CD everything in your Ipod library just in case.

Actually, if you can store your library and files on an external drive (I have all of mine on a 4gb SDHC card) then you don't need to sync it to only one computer. It syncs to one library, and if you have that portable, then it should work on any computer with iTunes. Just be sure you choose your library, or it will prompt you to sync to the default (if you are indeed on a different computer, like a friend's or something).

No. If you have a portable hard drive you can transfer data. ( iTunes goes with your drive.) You also get your songs from the first computer.

Um...I have used my iPod with two different computers in my household, a lot, with none of this syncing problem...
