I just went through HELL trying to get the songs on my iPod and iTunes from my Mac to my new Dell PC. I finally took it to an Apple Store and they did it for me. Now my iPod only works on my Dell PC but I still have all the songs on my Mac Laptop.
They did some complicated file swaping, I tried to follow but it was pretty involved.

Last year when I replace the entire stereo system, my electronics friend talked me into an iPod instead of a CD player...best thing I ever did. Enough music to last the entire month, and it hooks right to the Pioneer setup.

if you leave all of the music on your hard drive you can copy it from computer to computer, unless it was originally downloaded by itunes.

I have the IPOD nano what works best to get the music from the ipod to your boat stereo? I know there are several ways, put I have heard that some have allot of static.

If the stereo has an AUX input, get a cord that will plug into it and the Ipod (usually 2 rca jacks and a mini plug on the other end) and use that. If not, the next best thing is a cassette adapter, but it has to have a cassette player. If you use one of those little radio senders they are prone to static from real radio stations trying to make their way in along with the Ipod signal. I tried a bunch of different things before finally just buying a new head unit that had an AUX input, works the best, hands down.
