Hello all, Newbie here. Just got my first IPOD. It's an 8 gig touch and I love it. Now my question. I have a fairly large music library with about 40 gigs of mp3's. Now when I add them to my Itunes library it also copied them in my Itunes folder. Thats alot of hard drive space taken up. I don't want to delete my music folder because I use media player alot. Is it necessary to keep the files copied in the I tunes library? Thanks all.
