screwup number one: my laptop doesn't have high-speed USB. instead, my syncing is limping along at some painful USB 1.1 rate. damn you, dell, for not putting USB 2.0 and FireWire on my computer. -grumble-
limplimp. more updates later.
screwup two: the syncing still going on. it's been two hours since i plugged this baby in, and since i have only 300+ songs to transfer this is starting to worry me. on the other hand, i tried to stop it and it wouldn't let me which to me means it's trying to do SOMETHING. and it's trying to do it on USB 1.1. dammit. shoulda gone with the iBook's FireWire instead.
looks like no sleep tonight for me...
