Thanks Marian - I didn't think to look in the Support section, I only 
checked the iPod section and the Apple Store. (The "Tech Specs" in the 
Store did hint that you could - but it was a hint rather than a clear 
statement (in view of the comments seen in reviews).

Ahhh - that explains the comment I had seen elsewhere - you can copy 
files to an iPod being used as an external disk, but can't then play 
them as tunes. How strange, and annoying.

Thanks
