New X570 Build - A Couple Of Questions

I'm building a new system using a MSI Meg X570 Unify mobo & Ryzen 3900X. For the first time ever I'm using a NVME M2 storage device, specifically a Samsung 970 Pro 512 GB.

Re: Dumb Question about IPod Touch

Yes you can move any MP3 over from your PC to iPod, iPad etc....I think you're stuck using iTunes to to it, I've read up on other programs but haven't tried them, I just use iTunes to load my iPod up.

Yeah, I was a bit apprehensive posting a response to somebody with only one post. Now that I see all the spam replies, I won't do it again.

Re: Windows 7 update 2823324

Re: SSD Caught Fire at SATA Power Plug

That sucks, hopefully there was no other damage to your place. I had something similar happen years go with a floppy drive that I didn't get the IDE and power plugged in correctly. Melted down the cables, floppy drive and mobo.

Re: cant follow links

KnightRid is correct, I seem to recall during the installation of Chrome it asked if I want to set it as default browser.
