The battery of my old 4th gen Nano has stopped holding a charge. It works when plugged in and I can add and remove contents, but that is it. I still prefer the click wheel for listening to books and tend to prefer listening to music on a device other than my phone when performing activities like writing where I do n't want any interruptions. Because of this, I've managed to track down and order a brand new 5th generation Nano to replace the one that is on its way out. I figure it will give me a bit more time to get used to the idea of saying goodbye to the click wheel. The issue I am going to have to deal with is that I have also never been one for bothering with playlists, I just add and remove contents as mood suits. Currently I have the 4th gen player full up with songs, books, and a few podcast episodes. The last I can reconstruct easily, but the first two are going to take a lot of time and effort unless I can find a way to mass copy the contents of the old player onto the new.
So, is there any way to copy the complete contents of one device onto another? It would save me so much time. If I could also use it to start moving songs onto my new iPhone, it would be even better since I already have to manually copy over all of the BARD library books I have onto it and have to redownload my Kindle and Nook libraries as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
