Hello! I have one iTunes library on my iPod and one iTunes library on my computer. When I connect my iPod touch to my PC, however, I cannot find any files in my iPod except for pictures. How can I find the music files so I can add them to my iTunes?

You can't do that.
And before you decide to store any music that you own on a computer at work, talk to your IT department. Many organizations do not permit it for legal reasons. Standard policies are that anything stored on company owned computers is the property of the company. It could not be legally stored on their machines unless you transfer the licenses and all copies, physical and digital, to the company, meaning you no longer own the music. If they were to be audited and could not prove that they own the music, they would be subject to copyright violation penalties. Just use your iPod when you're at the office if you want to listen to music.

    How can i copy the music files from itunes in mp3 format to my PC

    Dr. P,
    Song files are just files.  You can copy them the way you copy any other files, like photos or documents.
    If any of the files are not already in MP3 format, and you wish to create MP3 versions, then you can convert them using iTunes, by following this guide:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1550

  • HT1449 Now that i have my iTunes backed up on iCloud and iCloud Match running, can I delete the music files from my MacBook Pro?  It is running out of hard drive space.

    When I started this request in the Support section, I did not realize I was typing a subject into a header.  Sorry.
    My MacBook Pro is nearly full and I would like to rely on iCloud for my music with the hope of freeing up space by deleting the music files I have accumulated on this machine.  Can I just delete the files in the iTunes folder or is there some special procedure?
    Thanks in advance for your help on this.

  • How do I transfer the music files on the ipod to a computer

    Is that not supposed to be done. That is what I thuoght this thing was for. I am really confused. The only thing I would like to do is put what I have on my I pod onto my laptop. What am I doing wrong.

    There is a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs but not playlists back to iTunes on Windows posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you prefer something more automated then there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward.

  • How can I move the music files back into my itunes library?

    Hi. I hope you can help. We bought a new computer and I was using my iPod as an external drive to move the music from one to another. This did not work, it said it ran out of room even though there was room on it...Anyway when i returned to my iTunes page the music was no longer in the library. When i check the files on my computer it is still there, yet it is not in the library. How can I get it back there? Whenever I plug in my iPod now it tries to sync it with the library which would wipe away all of the music.
    Thanks

    +"When i check the files on my computer it is still there, yet it is not in the library."+
    Putting the files on your computer does not cause them to be added to the library. To add them, use the command File > Add Folder to Library, and point it to My Music or whatever folder(s) all the music is in.

  • How can I transfer the music files from my iTunes ver: 9.0.? on my external hard drive to my new laptop with the latest version of iTunes?

    A few years ago I had copied my iTunes, ver:9.0.?, from my old laptop tom my external hard drive. The music on it was already loaded onto my other devices. My old computer crashed andI bought a new one, put iTunes on it and kept it updated. The problem is I forgot to keep the iTunes on my ecternal hatd drive updated. I tried to open the external hard drive iTunes but received a error with something to the effect that there was a newwerversion of iTune. I was hoping to either put the external Itunes music on my device. How can I go about that now?

    Type "move itunes library" into the google search bar.

  • How do I get the music I bought back on my new phone from itunes?

    I recently just got a new phone because mine broke and I cant remember how to get my purchased music back on my phone

    You should be able to download your previously purchased music from your iTunes app on your phone.
    Be sure you are signed in to the AppleID with which you purchased your music.
    When you go on to your iTunes app, along the bottom bar, tap on "More."  Then tap "Purchased."  Then select the music you want to download.  It should download from there.
    This link should be very helpful.  http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519

  • Laptop brokre, managed to recover files onto harddrive, how do i transfer the music files into my library on a new computer, Laptop brokre, managed to recover files onto harddrive, how do i transfer the music files into my library on a new computer

    ok so to cut a long story short my itunes account was on a laptop that broke, managed to get photo and music file backed up onto hard drive.
    Can i just log into my itunes account on a new pc to sync andbackup my iphone? or do i need to transfer my music file into the account?
    Really need some help!
    I have an iphone, Ipod and the account on the old laptop.

    "I don't have the old computer. It overheated and literally melteddown!"
    This is why it has alwasy been very basic to always maintain a backup copy.
    Did you fail to do this?
    "I have been talked through a back up process of the itouch music  on to the new laptop before, but can't remember how to do it. Any ideas on this process."
    Again. 
    The sync is one way - computer to ipod.  the only exception is itunes purchases:  File>Transfer Purchases
    You may be able to buy a 3rd party program to get non-itunes purchased music from the ipod.

  • How do I get the music off of my old iphone?

    How do I get the music off of my old iphone?

    1) ensure iTunes is authorized for your iTunes store account(s)
    2) connect your device and right-click or control-click it in the iTunes Source list, then choose transfer purchases from the shortcut menu that appears.
    3) sync the device
    iTunes will wipe the iPhone but, since you transferred your purchases in the previous step, your content will be in your library and you can re-populate the iPhone with it.
    above works for purchases from the iTunes store. for everything else, check out this post by Zevoneer.

  • We have itunes music on a computer, an ipod nano, and a new ipod touch under two different accounts. How can we combine the music from both accounts to one device?

    We have itunes music on a computer, an ipod nano, and a new ipod touch under two different accounts. How can we combine the music from both accounts to one device?

    There is no "adding" a device.  Simply plug the iDevice into the computer.  iTunes should automatically detect the device when it is connected.
    iTunes can sync/manage as many iDevices as you want... there is no 1 device limit.

  • I want to use my IPOD Classic 160gb for notepad entries in addition to the music and books I listen to. It is set to "Open ITunes when connected to computer" and "manually manage music and videos". How can I do that without losing some of the features

    I want to use my IPOD Classic 160gb for notepad entries in addition to the music and books I listen to. It is set to "Open ITunes when connected to computer" and "manually manage music and videos".  How can I do that without losing some of the features of those two?   I just want to add a feature.  Thanks

    Settings>Store (or iTunes & App Stores if you are running iOS6)>Apple ID. Tap your son's ID and sign out. Sign in with your ID and password.
    You shouldn't lose the music, but if you try to update any apps that you bought with the family ID, you will have to use that password that is linked with that ID in order to update.
    Avoid downloading past purchased content with the old ID if you can since you will associate the iPad with the old ID for 90 days and you will lock yourself out of your own, new ID for that period of time. Read more about associated devices in iTunes here.

  • Hello, how can I transfer the music from my Ipod to the Itunes on my desktop?

    As known my system crashed recently, so I have had to install everything again also Itunes.
    Earlier all my music CD's were installed in the Itunes library, of course I did loose everything exept my purchases from the Itune store.
    luckely all de music was also set on my Ipod. How can I export the music library from Ipod to my imac without performing a syncronisation which would make me loose the music tunes from my Ipod Touch.
    thank you for helping me out

    Unfortunately, iTunes doesn't give you the options to transfer non-purchased songs in the iTunes Store from an iPod to the iTunes library, so you have to use a third-party app.
    One of the best apps you can use is Senuti, and it's the one I prefer > http://www.fadingred.com/senuti/ You can find more in Internet
