"If you do not transfer these purchased items to your iTunes library, they will be removed from the iPod." I don't want to transfer purchases because they take up too much space on my computer, but I don't want them to be deleted from my iPod when I sync. How do I not transfer purchases without getting them deleted? Please help! Thanks in advance!

    Can you provide background on what you are doing?  It sounds to me like you are connecting to a new computer.  A device can only be synced with one iTunes library at a time and if it connects to a computer with a different one it will erase the content and replace it with the library on the computer.read the article below about adding music from a second computer to an i-device.

    No, not connecting to a new computer - it happens having purchased something direct to the phone, when next connected to the usual computer, it asks the question above.  I don't necessarily want to transfer the item to my computer, neither do I want to erase it from my phone.
