The Hidden Revealed: Song Storage on the iPod

If you mount your iPod as an external storage device and double-click its icon, you'll be surprised to find that it contains just a few folders: Contacts, Calendars, and (if you have a third- or fourth-generation iPod, iPod Photo, or iPod mini) Notes. You know that the iPod contains your entire library of Bill Frisell CDs, yet they're nowhere in sight. Has Apple created a stealth partition that stores only song data?

Is the iPod really some remarkable wireless receiving device that plays songs beamed from Apple's super-secret orbiting satellite?

No, no, and no.
