my computer crashed and wiped everything! i have my music on my ipod but don't know how to get music back onto itunes. i am using my sisters computer which has itunes on it, it has about 200 songs on it (which would go nicely onto my ipod as well if poss!) so- want to get music from my ipod onto my sisters itunes and get songs already on itunes onto my ipod. any help would be greatly appreciated.
For Windows: 1) connect iPod and hold Shift + Ctrl - this stops the auto sync 2) If your iPod doesn't appear in 'My Computer' then enable disk use for the iPod 3) Go to 'My Computer' and Double-click your iPod to open it 4) From the menu bar go to Tools > Folder Options… 5) Select the 'View' tab 6) scroll down and enable 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' 7) hit 'Apply' or 'OK' 8) Double-click on 'iPod_Control', then 'Music' 9) Copy the contents (Folders named F01, F02, etc.) to your HDD 10) open iTunes preferences and under the advanced pane, make sure that 'Keep iTunes Music folder organized' and, 'Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library' are checked. The first option will fix up the filenames so that they appear normal, the second makes sure that the songs are somewhere safe that iTunes knows about. 11) Drag the Folders into the iTunes window to import your music
