Helpful Information about getting music from ANY ipod onto your itunes!!!

This is a message letting all Windows itunes users how to put music from any ipod onto their itunes, or other music player. Many people are annoyed when itunes doesn't let them put music from an ipod, thats not registered with their computer, into their itunes. I found that it is possible. First, you must open Search from the start menu and make sure your ipod is connected to your computer. Next, set the search prefrences to search for hidden files and tell it to search for music(on the ipod). Once you begin the search, you will be shown all the hidden music files that are on your ipod. After the search, just drag the files to itunes and they'll import.*
*Note: the files wont say the names of the songs until you import them into itunes or any other music player.

  • How can I get my music from my iPod onto my iTunes library?

    I google searched it and everyone said to go onto 'my computer' and select the device and then go to tools to view the music folder however I do not have an option of tools, is there any other way I can get my music from my iPod onto my iTunes library?

  • Is there a way to get music from my ipod to my itunes library

    Hello. I have a problem with my music library. My computer hardrive crashed and i had lost all of my music and other information in iTunes. All i have left is the music on my iPod... But is there a way to get the music from off my iPod and back on my new music library? Plz help. Ty

    Check out the instructions/suggestions here.
    Music from iPod to computer.
    There's also another method. I've successfully tested this across several different Windows PCs.
    Open iTunes and select edit/preferences/advanced/general. Put a check mark in the box marked "copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library" and also "keep iTunes music folder organized", then click 'ok'.
    Connect the iPod whilst holding down the shift/ctrl keys to prevent any auto sync, and if you see the dialogue window asking if you want to sync to this itunes library, click 'no'.
    Then go to file/add folder, open 'my computer', select your iPod and click 'ok'.
    The music files should transfer to your iTunes.
    If this doesn't work (and it may not because officially it's not supposed to), there's Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music and playlists etc from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.

  • Help! Having a problem getting music off of ipod onto new itunes

    My old laptop had a itunes downloaded on it, but I recently got a new laptop and i just downloaded itunes onto the new laptop.  The problem I am facing is that I can not figure out how to get the music i already have on my ipod onto the itunes i just downloaded. HELP

    You are having problems because iTunes is not designed to work that way.  Syncing is one way, computer to device. Copy the whole iTunes folder from your old laptop or your backup (you do have one, don't you?) to the same location on the new one.  If you no longer have the old laptop you will have to use third party software to copy just media files, then rebuild all yoru playlists, ratings, playcounts, etc. by hand.
    Any items you purchased from Apple can be downloaded to iTunes from the iTunes store again, if that feature is available in your ocuntry.

  • Question about moving music from an iPod to your computer.

    In my household, we have iTunes on three different computers. My mother downloaded music on my brother's computer, and it's on his library. We want to burn a cd with the purchased album, but his computer does not have a cd burner, but the other two do. Is there a way to move music from one computer to another, or possibly moving music from an iPod to a computer's library?

    Music is synced to iphone from itunes.
    Plug in iphone and select whatever you like to sync from itunes to iphone.

  • Can't get stuff from my ipod onto my itunes library

    I had an old desktop and it filled up with memory so i got a laptop and when i tried to put my apps on the computer and clicked transfer purchases all it did was sync nothing. i've tried this a few times and i never works. i also tried selecting manually manage music and videos, and then closed out itunes, unpluged my ipod, then went back to itunes, pluged in my ipod BUT STILL NOTHING!!!!! someone pleas help computernerd123 (who sometimes is not so much a computer nerd)
    Thank you,

    I suspect what you are trying to do is have the music that is in your iPod move into your new computer.
    This is not allowed by Apple as it would lead to people copying other people's iPods instead of buying the music.
    That being said, think of the iPod as an external hard disk drive and "manage" the files and folders as you see fit.
    Your applications, those on your iPod, are also registered at the Apple Store. When you authorize your new install of iTunes and sync your iPod, the applications will return to both places... on your computer and in your iPod.
    If this in an iPod you purchased with music already on it, just enjoy the thing and read the manual about digital rights management.
    I'm sorry if this is not what you wanted to hear. Moving the music from an iPod to a computer is not supported in the iTunes program.

  • HT1329 Help me move my music from my iPod onto my new laptop...please!?!

    Hi!  The steps to do this are clearly explained in the HELP section...but when I try to follow the steps and open the iPod, I only get three folders: Calendars, Contacts, and Notes, all of which are empty!  However, when I have iTunes on and am looking at my iPod as a DEVICE...I can see all the music in it. 
    How can I move what iTunes can SEE into my laptop library?!  Does this have anything to do with me having a Sony VAIO, which is very media-full...but I don't really know how to use yet?
    Help?
    Cheers,
    Kristin

  • How do I transfer music and stuff from my ipod onto my itunes library on my new laptop?

    I got a new laptop and i plugged my ipod in and everything was okay but the music that is on my ipod is not in my itunes library it is just in the drop down music menu when my ipod is plugged up to my laptop. So, i hit sync and it said either transfer purchases or erase and sync.well i definitely do not want to erase the 500 songs i have on my ipod so i hit transfer and it said that it was unable to transfer because my ipod is not authorized with the computer. so i hit authorize and it asks me to log in and so when i type in my email and password and then hit authorize it just takes me back to the login screen with a really weird random email in and no password. I tried doing this many and just takes me back to the same page. I need to know how to get my music from my ipod onto my itunes library without losing any music. Please and thank you for any help that you can offer.

    If you have an iPod Touch, as suggested by your profile, I suggest you create a thread in the iPod Touch forum. You have posted in the iPod Classic forum.

  • Importing music from an ipod onto a new computer

    I've used a pc with my ipod since i got it.
    now i got a macbook pro and want to import all the music from the ipod onto my itunes on the macbook. can someone tell me how i can do that?
    thank you.

    You can't take music from your iPod and put it on the computer. You can re-download the songs from iTunes (I think its free to re-download the song if you already bought it, but im not sure) or you could transfer all your music from your PC onto a flash-drive and then take the music from the flash-drive and download it to the Mac. Then on iTunes, you update your library and it should locate the new music.

  • I have multiple itunes accounts... can i sign into all of them and drag music... without having to sync them all?... is that what home sharing is? please help.. i use to be able to get music from any account but now it says im already attached to one!

    i use to just get music from any computer i plugged my ipod it... including whatever account... but lately im not allowed ... it says im already synced to another account... diid they change their policy? ... how do i fix this... i want to be connected to three accounts.... is that what home sharing is? will it enable me to get from all three?

    When you delete items (movies, music, whatever) from your iTunes library the sync software automatically deletes those items from your iPod. The sync's goal is to make your iPod mirror your iTunes library.
    When you use the "only sync checked items" it tells the software that <only> those items are to be on your iPod -it will delete other items from that category.
    I don't have a video iPod to test with, but I think your only option is to sync everything you want onto your iPod, and then turn off sync completely, in favor of manual updates.
