    I have the OLD (Classic - with click wheel) iPod & used to sync it with cable to iTunes. Now I am on iTunes Match and have deleted all local music files (to save hard drive space on MacBook Air). Everything works beautifully on that + 1 other MacBook Air + iPad + iPhone - without cables, of course. How do I keep my music up to date on the old iPod? Thanks!

    Thank you for the quick response. If I could ask a follow-up: am I constrained in this case because it would be the 5th device tied to my iTunes account, or simply because of the (age of the) iPod (or both)? I presume from your response that in this particular case I would not be able to keep my music files up to date on this iPod, given that I have wiped the hard drive of the files (for the master Mac). I suppose I could use the 2nd Mac or some other device to be master, with the files locally of course, and use that for syncing the iPod.

    The age of the iPod. It needs the physical files to be there in order to sync.
