I know it would be nuts because you have to go resource by resource, but I'm curious: How many resources did you copy and about how much space did it take up? I've got the 64 gig iPod Touch and have 1574 resources available now (thanks to Galaxie's availability!) and (though it's more theoretical) I want to know how much space the library would take.

OH- and when you look at the HDD space breakdown on iTunes, where does it label the resources files? Under "applications" or "misc. data"?

I've downloaded all the NAC, Tyndale, Expositor's, Baker NT, BECNT, Pillar, and quite a few other miscellaneous books (works of van til, a.w. pink, various sytematic theologies). I've suggested a 'filtered download', ie put in a keywoard and then have 'download all' for those filtered resources, so you don't have to download stuff you wouldn't use regularly on-the-go, but you also wouldn't have to click each one individually.

So I've probably gotten at least 200, maybe closer to 300 of my books on there  I think they've used around 1GB?  I have about 4GB used on my Touch, but probably 1.5GB is music and other 1-2GB is large racing/flying games.

If I understand correctly, it labels them under 'applications'...but I'll double-check next time I sync.

Can you give a step by step on how to do this.  The IPOD is a new resource for me

Check out this link particularly: http://www.youtube.com/v/fQKeMVJxN-E&hl=en_US&rel=0&hd=1&autoplay=1

Let me know if you have questions and I can try to help - I've used the app a good bit in the past few months.

Thanks, Ive been able to accomplish this way but it will take a couple of days to most of my library on it.  I thought maybe someone was saying there is a way to do this besides one book at a time

No, sorry, I was just saying I'd asked Dave (the current iPhone app developer) to consider adding that type of functionality.  Hopefully before too long.  I know there's a lot of factors and I'm just glad to get some key resources available offline even if it means some work on my part for now.

Given the lack of offline searching etc, why would you want your whole library on your idevice? A few key resources that you regularly read I can understand but the whole library? Why?

I travel a lot about 40 weeks a year.  I like to have my library handy for research, reading, sermon prep, teaching, and etc.  At this time I have to carry 2 notebooks around so if I can leave one and just carry my ipod it filld my need..  Actually I am finding that unless I have an internet connection when using offline books none of the norml library function work. 

Please understand everyone has their own reason for using the software that may not align with you.  Thanks
