just ADD songs to ipod, no replace, no remove

i haven't updated my one ipod in years, my other i have updated all the time, the thing is i want to add all of my new songs on my old ipod, without removing or replacing any, there are songs on that ipod that are no longer on my computer, i don't know which ones, or how many, but all i want to do is add songs from the library, not remove or replace, how can i do that? when i rpess sync it wants to delete 300 songs?

I just "send" the songs I want to my iPod. If they are already on there, it does not matter and if there were songs on the iPod, not on the list I am sending, that would not matter either. Maybe I don't understand your question? It would make me too nervous to have songs on an iPod that are not on my computer or backed up somewhere.

well what do you mean send, you send them one at a time?

i can see what your saying,b ut how do you "send" songs, i press sync, and it makes my ipod exactly like my library (deletes songs that aren't in my library, adds songs that are in my library but not in my ipod) so how do you just "send " the whole library? or do you do it one at a time?

I just right click on a song, playlist or a highlighted list of songs in the ML and choose "Send To" iPod. I never "sync" my ML and my iPod for 2 reasons. First, I have way more songs in my Winamp ML than I want on my iPod. Second, I used iTunes for a while a year or two ago and had still have some mental trauma over the way iTunes sometimes interprets "Sync".

i see what you say, let me ask you though if this would work, if i selected my whole library, and click send, nothing would be erased, maybe some stuff would be doubled, but nothing erased, right?

For us, as long as a file that is on the iPod is the exact same file as what is in the ML, it will not put it on twice. It just adds the new ones.

I am sorry, but can not completely assuage your fears.

On one of our iPods, we sometimes send the a whole library. But we only do this when the iPod is empty. On our other iPod, with a different library, we never do this since it contains so many songs. I have never seen a song erased from the iPod when doing this, but you SHOULD NOT take my word for this. The reason is that I do not really pay attention specifically to that. I never allow the a situation where my only copy of a song is on the iPod, so it would not matter if I lost a few songs off the iPod and I might not notice.

I have done it that way, but I think the choice is "send to" iPod.

My brother tried to add six songs and erased 340! I had put the initial songs from my computer and he tried to add the six new from his own; hence the loss. There is probably some way to simply add because otherwise it is an annoying feature and means you have to keep the ipod library on your computer – taking up 4 gig disk space.

After spending hours trying to figure out how to transfer songs without erasing those already on the ipod, i found that you can (windows users) click on the 'Edit' pulldown menu on itunes, then check "manually manage songs and playlists". Don't let the warning scare you. click okay. That's it!!! After that, you can simply click and drag whatever songs from the itunes library (or other) list and drop in the ipod logo in the itunes source menu on the left. The song is instantly coppied to the ipod, and is only added. it doesn't replace any songs on the ipod.

from my experience, using the send to won't erase the other songs. Thats probably the only way to add songs manually. A problem I had with that is having duplicate songs. I ended up downgrading to winamp 5.1 and using ml_ipod 1.30 for my transfers. winamp 5.2 has way too many bugs for me to handle.
