Start>Right click on My Computer>Manage. IN there you will see Drive Management. In there have your iPod hooked up. Just right click on it and change the drive letter.

Right now its "R" for my external drive. When using Windows XP my external drive was "I". I need to import my library from iTunes and the music library is on that external library. I tried changing it using the method, in which it worked, but it doesn't have an option to put it as "I".

What are my options?

You could just save the mp3 (or mp4) music files to your computer from your ipod, then import the files to itunes by browsing files on your HD.
This suggestion is not the best, but I am not to sure on the operations on Vista quite yet.

I agree that I am more productive in XP than in Vista. Vista looks so much cooler though! I'll give it a month until I can adapt better.

If I just get the music all my hours I've spent rating my music will be gone. Thats why I need the import.

Actually the Command that i gave for SXtart>Right click on my Computer>Manage is the same command line as it is in VIsta.

So i guess it isnt easier in XP than it is in Vista. Since they ARE EXACTLY THE SAME!!!!
