    how do you backup your ipod music?

    I wanna download some new music but my ipod’s running out of space. I really don’t wanna delete any single song, how can i backup them to my computer? They said I can copy the songs to anywhere on pc but that didn’t work at all, when ipod was pluged in there was no music(only some pictures) shown on the computer! I know there must be one solution, anyone know how ?

    Well if you bought those songs on iTunes I think it’s easy to get them back, because they should be linked to your account so you can download them for free again.
    But if those music on your ipod are from other computers via itunes, you may not transfer them from ipod to pc because itunes can only transfer these fiels from itunes to your ipod touch. In that case you will need some other tools to do that. Google iPod Transfer and maybe you can find something useful.

    1. Connect your iPod, without launching iTunes .
    2. Open your iPod, right click and choose “Explore” then go to the control panel, Protable Media, and double-click your ipod .
    3. Go to Options (in the Tools menu), and on the View tab, check “Show Hidden Files and Folders”.
    4. Select songs and music and drop them to a folder on your hard drive.
    5. Go into iTunes Preferences, and under the Advanced tab, check “Keep iTunes Music Folder Organized” and “Copy files to iTunes Music Folder when adding to the library”
    6.Add your files ,select file in iTunes and add folder to library and and select the folder where you copied the files from your iPod.
    If above can’t help you ,search a page “how to backup iPod music on PC” or “how to backup iPod music on Mac” may give you guides .

    WTF does this have to do with a Wii posted in the n00b section? There is a crapple section on the forum for garbage like this...

    The easiest way to get your songs off of your iPod is with a hammer. Just one hit and the songs should come spilling out on the sidewalk. If you don't see them, don't worry, they be in some nested folders -- just hit em again. Eventually, you'll have all your songs strewn about the sidewalk. Just be careful, because the edges of the songs are sharp.

    This is a pain....I hade a hard drive crash about 5 years ago and Apple doesn't let you redownload for free (at least they didn't then) and they don't let you copy music off your ipod. You have to go to extreme measures to get music off an ipod.....

    But normally, outside of a hard drive crash, your music should already be on your computer.
