I'd like to simply create folders and copy my music to my IPOD manually through windows.  Copy Music & Video to specified folders then view & listen on my ipod how do I do that?

I have a 30gb Ipod color video.

I don't think the built-in iPod software will allow that - you'd have to use a hack like ipodlinux (which you might have to wait for it to support the iPod video).

I think you're basically out of luck at this stage.

Well that's the actual question then - I'm sure we can be more helpful now.

Has the iPod ever been used before?

I found a program called Analog Explorer which allows me to copy music to my IPOD with windows like folders.

Yes, you can copy anything you want onto the iPod, but that won't make it accessible through the iPod's user interface I'm afraid.
