I have burned numerous cd's onto my old computer.  Many of these songs cannot be purchased on Itunes (Garth Brooks for example).  My old computer died and now I can't transfer these songs from my ipod onto my new computer.  How can I retreive my data?

What options do you have enabled from under your iPod's Summary and Music tabs for syncing preferences?

  • My old computer has crashed and is beyond repair. How can i transfer my playlist from my ipod to my new computer?

    My old computer has crashed. My new computer has my iphone account. How can I transfer my playlist from my ipod to my new computer?

    Sync is only oneway, from PC to your device. Unless you have the music on your PC, iTunes is going to wipe out what you have on your device if you are syncing to a new library.
    You can only transfer Purchased music over to Itunes on your PC.

    As for you own music, you may have to use a third party software. A good Free one is called Sharepod which you can download from Download.com here:

  • I have a new computer. How can I save my music from my IPod to the new computer since it isn't in my Library. I don't want to sync and lose music.

    Then you will need to search for a 3rd party program to transfer content
    Pasted from another thread
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2234756?start=0&tstart=0
    One of the most recommended is Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.
    Other free programs are Pod Player, SharePod and Floola and iDump andiPodRobot.
    If you want to recover just the structure of playlists from the iPod (and not the actual song files themselves), there's iRepo for Windows. which I understand has this feature along with all the standard features for these programs.
    iPodRip also has the feature enabling you to reconstruct playlists.
    There is also CopyTrans. This does preserve ratings/playcounts etc if those are important to you but this program is not free. It also supports video transfer.

  • HT1349 i have a new pc and when i plug in my ipod it says it must erase all data to sync.  How can i get my music from the ipod to the new computer?

    I have a new pc windows 7 and when i plug in my ipod it says it must erase all the data to sync.  How do i get the music from my ipod to my new computer.  The old computer is trashed and files are not available, songs are only on ipod.

    One of the reasons why including your iTunes library with your computer's backup is a good idea. Use this link for future reference in this regard.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1751
    iTunes includes an option to transfer iTunes content that was purchased/downloaded from the iTunes store from an iPod, iPad, and iPhone, but this is for iTunes content that was purchased/downloaded from the iTunes store only.
    First you need to authorize your new computer with your iTunes account with iTunes if you haven't already done so.
    With your iPhone connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPhone.

  • Can I bring the music from my ipod to my new computer?

    My old computer crashed and I lost everything. When I plug my ipod in to my new computer it ask if I want to replace the music on my ipod with the music on my new computer (right now there is no music on here). Is there a way I can bring my music from my ipod to my new computer? Thanks

    You can't sync your music back from an iPod to iTunes, the transfer of music 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 files from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward.
    iPod Access Mac and Windows Versions
    YamiPod Mac and Windows Versions
    PodUtil Mac and Windows Versions
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows Versions
    PodPlayer Windows Only
    PodPlus Windows Only
    There is also a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive on Windows and retrieving your songs posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you are using the iPod in manual update mode, your iPod is safe from being accidentally erased when you connect to an empty iTunes after reinstalling your operating system. However if your iPod is set to automatically update you will get a message that your iPod is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press *No*. Pressing "Yes" will irretrievably remove all songs from your iPod. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual.
    You can also use a keyboard command to prevent your iPod auto-syncing with iTunes. While connecting the iPod to the computer on Windows hold down the Shift + Ctrl keys (on a Mac hold down the Option and Command (⌥ and ⌘) keys). This will stop the iPod from auto-syncing with iTunes and the iPod will appear in the source list. Wait until you are sure the iPod has mounted, and that it will not auto sync and then you can let the keys go. This may take between 20 to 30 seconds depending on your computer. Then go to Preferences>iPod and check the "Manually manage songs and playlists" box: Managing Your Songs Manually
    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 again.

  • How can I transfer my music from my IPod onto another computer?

    I have a new laptop and my dad has an itunes account which has all of the songs on it but I was wondering if I could transfer the songs from my IPod onto my new laptop on my account.

    - Transfer iTunes purchases by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - For other music you need a third-party program like those discussed here:

  • HT1459 How can I transfer information on my Nano Ipod to my new computer?

    Support expert, I have an Ipod Shuffle (2 generation). I recently purchased a new desktop computer and my library and information is on my old computer that crashed. How can I transfer my information that is on my Nano Ipod to my new computer? Thank you in advance for your help.

    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for this very occasion.  Have you failed to do this?
    If so, not good, you can transfer itunes purchases from the ipod:  File>Devices>Transfer Purchases
