It is really starting to look like we have an issue with one of Trish's computers... its been getting slower and slower and even doing scans hasnt helped... so before I go over it and deal with the more serious issues, I am really not up to savy on the iPod software... is there a way of backing up the songs Johnny has downloaded to another drive so IF the situation arises that it needs to be dumped we dont lose that all?

Any quick "down and dirty" is appreciated...

Yes you can. There is an option in iTunes to create a backup CD. It's supposed to be pretty simple and it's off of one of the root menus at the top. I'm not 100% sure because I don't have iTunes in front of me and I only got it last week for the first time with the iPhone so the song portion is not what I use most. Look on the "file" menu near the bottom and see if there's an "export to CD" or "backup CD" option. I'll look further later.
