You were probably correct. So my dad (music store owner) gets a customer in that offers him an ipod for 100 bucks. He figured I might like an ipod so he said yes. I guess it can be some sort of early birthday gift, I turn 18 in a week. The ipod is a 2nd generation 20 gig model. It's got a ton of music on it already so I've been enjoying that but I need to start putting my own music on. I have the adaptor but not the cord that connects the ipod to the computer, nor do I know what to do once it is connected to the computer. How should I get myself going on knowing how to use this thing?
