Ipod

I just got a 30gb Ipod today and I was wondering how to add pictures, it seems like it wants to add all of my pictures? I know with the music I could change it to manual select, but no idea about the pictures?

I am also trying to add movies, but all of them are windows media player format so I assume they wouldn't work with an ipod?

thanks for any help

Nick

I have pictures on my iPod.

I just take the picture and drag it to the right near my name when I plug in my iPod, and iPod makes a photo album, put pictures into the album and they automatically load up.

Hope that helps.

Oh, btw, I just went to Comp USA today, and bought a DVD2Ipod, and am currently trying to figure it out. Haven't tried an acutal DVD yet, just a DVD I downloaded from a friend. It's all there, but I just have to figure out a way to make the sound match the video. The sound is off by a 30 seconds.

oh so I could just drag the pictures from MY Pictures to the ipod? But do I drag it to the ipod name in itunes, or the one that pops up under my computer?

thanks

contact local apple stores' genius bar - they're a good free reference. (especially this time of year - holiday traffic through the stores)

hmm now I have pics, but somehow all my music was deleted? Maybe because I dragged something into the wrong folder... I only bought the Ipod yesterday, but maybe i'll go see them in a few days..

I think it will be ok now though because I seem to have the music..
