ITunes/iPod question

I have a question about Itunes, I've been fiddling with it and the iPod. I put songs from Itunes onto the iPod, well they went automatically, that's how it was set up. However when I came on later and tried to put on more songs, it erased the ones I had already put on the Ipod and then put the new ones on. Is there a way to prevent this? I just recently set it to manual , will that do the trick? I would like continue adding to the playlist without having them be deleted everytime from the iPod.

Thanks alot folks

Was it on the same computer? If you charge it on a different computer, you have to make sure to do it manually and not set it as the default. If you were using the same computer I'd assume that would mean you deleted some of the songs you had on there earlier, right? As long as you keep adding songs to your iTunes and don't delete any, they shouldn't be lost when you recharge it...

Yes, the songs that I took from cd's onto my computer I deleted after I had transferred them to the iPod.

okay...well you should either leave them on your computer, or if you do want to delete them, make sure you always use the manual option, I guess.

How does the manual option work?

Each time I upload to my Ipod my songlist orders and songs get changed. Itunes can't find the files or something always goes wrong.

I know there must be another way but I can't figure it out

i've never used the manual feature but i guess it just lets you choose what playlists/songs to update

You have to physically click and drag individual songs from playlists or your library or iTunes sections. I had to do this because I have accounts on more than one computer, really doesn't take that much time depending on how many new songs you need to add.

Agreed. I don't like my iPod doing things without my consent.
