my old laptop has 35 gigs of music on it all loaded into my itunes library but the internet no longer works on my laptop. i would like to get a new ipod and sync it up to my library however i was wondering if i need an active internet connection to do so. i don't know if i have to register my ipod online with itunes before syncing it up for the firs time. does anyone know if it's necessary to have a functional internet connection to sync an ipod?
if that's the case i'm trying to think of another alternative. does anyone know of a way to sync an ipod with an external hard drive without having to load the contents of the hard drive onto another computer?
