My PC recently required a re-format before I had the chance to back anything up. Amongst other things I lost my complete iTunes library. I know it's possible to download from my iPod to iTunes, but unfortunately iTunes will not let me do it.
Can anyone please recommend software that will do this and is free to download? I know of a package that will let me download 100 tunes, but I've got over 2000 to transfer.
Thanks Raven but Ephod doesn't seem to run with newer iPods and Yammi is more like a substitute for iTunes. As mentioned previously, Copytrans does the job but only for 100 tunes unless you pay. Looks like I'll need to get the wallet out.
Hi WGW, Ive just used yamipod to transfer music from ipod to pc using my daughters ipod nano 4gb(6 months old) (select all,then copy to folder) I then dragged the folder to itunes 7.4,they appeared and played from the library.
Heres the catch... My pc didnt have itunes on it,i transferred the songs from the ipod first,then downloaded itunes in that order. no problem I then noticed after installing itunes,this disabled yamipod in some way. yamipod would only function again if i did one of two things 1.disabled/killed the processes relating to itunes/apple 2.uninstalling itunes
so if your itunes library is empty,can i suggest uninstalling,use yamipod to copy to pc,redownload itunes and drag to the library. Thats of course if nothing better comes along:-)
Raven: Thanks for the additional info, however, I had already uninstalled iTunes. Anyway, your first suggestion worked a treat for me and apart from the playlists needing to be re-populated (I was planning to change them anyway), I've now got my iTunes library back as it was prior to the re-format.
So thanks again.
P.S. - I suspect the other recommendations would have been as effective if I had uninstalled iTunes first.
