I hate you itunes
 
iOS lover here... recent events have had me first try and move my entire itunes collection to my laptop to synch with, and another had caused the destruction of the library files from the original pc (os reformat).

So let me list the **** that itunes can't do.

Itunes will not back up its library files.
Itunes will not stick its library files in the same damn place as your media library... you know cause having that option would be just dumb.
Itunes will in no way...even having access to your account logon and even the possibility to talk between the original itunes and what not, transfer ownership of a device.
Once the original synch pc is lost, itunes will do everything to screw you out of the music on the player when creating a new host for the ipod.
Accept that it fails.. does not wipe the ipod like it says it does.. instead it thinks your ipod is now filled with gigabytes of unknown data that it will ignore, and bitches it does not have enough space to upload your 16gigs of music/data on your 32gb ipod touch.

It was the worst part of having an iPhone for me. I like the Zune software for my windows a lot better.

slawter, if you lose your library files in one way or another, your pretty much forced to do a wipe and resynch as a new library. That is a lot of time and who knows if everything you dragged and redrop back into itunes will get sorted the same, or missed? with over 2k songs, Its hard to tell if I got them all.

Thankfully it appears the backup part which can be done even if it isnt the primary pc is good enough to restore app data.

Agree, I love the zune software. Last time I had iTunes installed it was on XP.

iTunes does take some know how when backing up, restoring the master library, etc, but it's not that bad. I'm still using it heavily on my MBP.
