Help! Need help with transferring Ipod to new computer

After it took me forever just to figure out how to ask a question...eerr!
My old computer crashed and I need to move all my files, purchased, photos, and music that were imported. I know with the new Itunes you can transfer the purchased items, but will that erase everything else on my Ipod...ie: my photos and imported files?
I have downloaded a Ipod copier..but not really sure how to do this all. Any help from anyone would be so greatly appreciated.

you can download whatever you need to recover all photos and music files from Ipod to mac.

  • Help! With transfering songs to new computer.

    I recently purchased a new computer, and I was wondering how to completely transfer my library from my previous comuputer.
    Thanks.

    Well, there are a number of ways.
    1. You can use an external Hard Drive, or Flash Drive. You will simply find the folder on your computer with all of the music, drag it onto the external whatever drive, then plug it into the new computer.
    2. There is a specific cable that you can use to connect the computers. I forget what it is called, but if you visit like a Radio Shack or something like that they will help you.
    3. You can burn a CD or DVD(preferrably, as it holds much more data) (or multiple, depending how large your library is) for your music, then put that into the new computer. You will put the blank disk into your DVD or CD or whatever it is drive and open iTunes. Then, make a playlist that is small enough to fit on one DVD or CD. Go to this playlist and Click Burn Disk (top right of the iTunes screen).

  • Need Help Moving music stored on IPod to new computer.......

    I Have a 60Gb VIdeo Pod, that I had linked to my old Powerbook G4, but the computer was taken and I bought a new Mac Mini, I want to know How can I take the Music from my IPod and link it to the new computer without overwriting the files on my IPod, It took me a three days to build my library from old CD's and I don't want to have to go through that again.

    Note that I am assuming you're properly licensed to be able to run the app on your new computer.  I do not propose doing anything illegal.
    With the ollld versions of Photoshop, like the one you have, you can try going through a process like this:
    1.  Copy the entire c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0 folder to the new computer.
    2.  Try to run Photoshop on the new computer.
    3.  Note any "missing DLL" message.
    4.  Locate the DLL on the old computer (e.g., in C:\Windows\System32 or wherever), and copy it to the same place on the new computer.
    5.  Repeat steps 2 through 4 until no more "missing DLL" messages present themselves.
    There may be other types of messages you'll see.  They're usually descriptive enough to be able to determine what it's looking for that it does not have.  If you get one you're unsure of how to handle, post it here.

  • Help with transferring apps on new computer.

    I bought a new computer and have backed up my songs and videos..now I have all my applications that I have no idea how to transfer them to the new computer.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Chi

    Be sure to be logged into your new computer's iTunes (the store via iTunes so it knows your account info) before plugging phone in.
    I would also turn off automatic sync first.
    Once connected, choose the Transfer purchased content (file menu or context menu off the iPhone menu item on left).
    It will copy off anything on your phone you bought via iTunes (include apps).
    For things you may have that are not longer on your phone, the app files are also in your iTunes folder of your old computer so just bring them to your new library as well.

  • Transferring iPod To New Computer With Windows 8

    I'm trying to transfer my iPod to my new laptop (Windows 8) for college. The version of Windows I used on my home computer is Windows 7. I tried simply syncing my iPod into iTunes on my new computer (twice). All it did was charge. When I ejected it, all my music was still on there (I heard later on it would get deleted by doing this). Is there any way to easily make this transfer with playlists and plays remaining in tact (the latter not being as important though)? I want to keep my iPod/iTunes in the condition it was before. The internet has been no help to me. If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hey blahblahihaveaquestion,
    Thanks for the question. The best solution for achieving this would be to transfer the iTunes Library from your previous computer (the one you currently sync your iPod with) to your new computer:

  • Need to upload from IPOD to NEW computer

    My computer disk went bad and is unrecoverable.   I have a new PC and am trying to UPLOAD the CDs from my IPOD to my new computer.   I have not been able to find any help on how to do this.   I don't want to have to reload my entire CD library (which took hours and hours)    Surely I am not the first person to have a disk go bad...
    On my old computer system I did have a backup disk and do have my Itunes Library on that disk but when I hooked my IPOD up to my new computer ITUNES downloaded onto the main disk instead of recognizing that ITUNES was on the external hard drive that was attached to the computer when I hooked my IPOD up.  
    My IPOD is a Gen 3 32 Gig It had 4.1 on it and automatically upgraded to 4.3 when I attached it to this computer.   (I had spent time trying to recover the old disk so it has been at least 3 months since my IPOD had synced with the old computer. 
    I'm not sure what other info would be helpful.  
    Please Please give advice on how to upload my CDsi

    Apple doesn't support the transferring of music from your iPod to your iTunes. Only iTunes to iPod. So to do this you will need to download a third party program that will help copy your music from your iPod back to your computer, or there are a couple manual methods you can check out.

    If you iPod is set to automatically update and you plug it into iTunes, a message will pop up telling you that your iPod is linked to another library. It will ask if you want to sync and replace all your music. Make sure you hit NO. If you sync with an empty library, then your iPod will also end up empty, because when it syncs it makes an exact copy of your library.
    Goodluck, hope something works for ya

  • Capacity issue with syncing iPod to new computer

    Trying to sync my 32 GB iPod Touch 4th Generation to my new laptop after updating my iTunes library.  Took all of my music from my old computer and added it to the new one through home sharing and added some new songs.  Have tried to sync my iPod now that all of the new music is on my new laptop, but I keep getting a message that I don't have enough free space.  However, the amount of music I'm trying to sync is actually less than the capacity of the iPot.  Is the sync trying to add the music libraries together somehow?  I thought it would erase what was on the iPod and replace it with the music on the iTunes library on my new laptop. The error message says: "The iPod cannot be synced because there is not enouch free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library." Any suggestions??

  • Computer Hard Drive Crashed - Need to Transfer from IPod to New Computer

    The hard drive died on my old PC as I was transferring files to the new PC. Most data made it but my daughter's ITunes was not one of the things that made it. Fortunately the tunes all still exist on her IPod. How do I transfer them on to the new computer and ensure the music all makes it? She has a combination of music purchased from ITunes and music from CDs. Her IPod is an older mono screen model but I believe we had ITunes 6.x or later on the old machine if that makes a difference.

    Connect your iPod to your computer. If it is set to update automatically you'll get a message that it is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all the songs from your iPod. When your iPod appears in the iTunes source list change the update setting to manual, that will let you use our iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button. Also when using most of the utilities listed below your iPod needs to be enabled for disc use, changing to manual update will do this by default: Managing content manually on iPod
    Once you are safely connected there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. The transfer of content from sources such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, this is just a small selection of what's available, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:

    If you have any iTunes Music Store purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. You'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computer
    There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available on page 2 at this link: Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide
    Whichever of these retrieval methods you choose, keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync. I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay.

  • Transfering ipod to new computer's itunes

    After my last computer was stolen I bought a new computer but when I tried to put my ipod in my new computer I was told it can only be synced to one itunes library at once and if I try to sync it to my new itunes, I'll lose all of the information on my ipod that I have now. While I understand the reasoning, there must be exceptions to the rule for cases like mine. Is there anyway around this?

    1). Connect your iPod to your computer. When you get the message that it is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all the songs from your iPod.

    3). Once you are safely connected there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. If you only want to copy your purchases to the computer that can be done using iTunes, you'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computer
    For everything else (including purchases) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod.

  • Transferring iPod to new computer

    Our house currently has two laptops. My iPod was synced with one of them. That computer's hard drive was wiped. As in, nothing's left on it. iTunes is completly wiped... The works. I want to sync it with this computer, problem is, I don't know how to do that without losing every single song. It took me forever to get these songs together, and I would really appreciate it if someone knew how to transfer the songs.
    Thanks,

    Hello and Welcome to Apple Discussions. 
    Follow the instructions in this article to transfer your iTunes library to the new computer:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300173
    If your iPod is smaller than the Library then you can burn discs or use an external hard disk instead.
