    Ive never used it but i assume that it copys all of your music and your database file onto teh computer that you have your ipod connected to. This could delete your old database file and music so i would proceed with caution if you already have files and music on the computer.

    In your iPod, there's a folder called, iTunes_Control (under Media, I believe).

    This is where the iPod keeps all your music etc.

    Swap Tunes makes a new blank one called iTunes_Control2, which iTunes will ignore.

    Whenever you run Swap Tunes, it renames iTunes_Control to iTunes_Control2 and vice-versa.

    To iTunes, it looks like a new iPod, since iTunes_Control is empty.

    That's it. It doesn't copy anything to your computer.

    what do you mean? that's the whole point of swaptunes. If you're just worried about the numbering, it doesn't really matter.
