Jan 6, 2007, 05:42 PM
Itunes is not recognizing my library and my saved library on my computer is corrupt somehow. Can you upload songs from the ipod into itunes. 2,000 songs are off CDs and I can't get itunes to transfer those songs from my ipod into a new library or playlist or anything (itunes did tranfer the songs I bought from them though). HELP!!!

Mac or PC?

If you have a Mac, use a program like Senuti or iPodRip to move your songs from your iPod to your computer. There are similar apps for PCs, but I don't know their names.

I see there's a Windows version of iPodRip (http://www.thelittleappfactory.com/software/ipodripwin.php)...I've only heard feedback on the Mac version, so I don't know how the Windows version stacks up. But feel free to give it a shot.

I downloaded ipodrip and it has been "loading ipod data" for awhile. How long ya think ikt takes to load 2,000 songs? I have a pretty fast computer, but I can't wait to see if this works!!! Thanks Cowboy!

Yes,you can transfer music from your ipod into itunes without losing all the songs. The first thing you need to do os connect your ipod to your computer via the white USB cable. If itunes opens and asks you if you would like to sync up your ipod click NO. After your ipod is connected, open My Computer, or just Computer from the start menu and look for the ipod drive. It should be in the (F:) drive. You will see the ipod logo in the listing of disk drives. If you are using Windows vista: Open the ipod drive and click on ORGANIZE. Then folder and search options tab. Then View and Show hidden files and folders. If you are using Windows XP, open the ipod drive and click tools then Folder options then View tab then click show hidden files and folder. Finally click Apply. Now you should have a new folder called ipod_control. Open that folder up and you should see the following: Calendar, Contacts, ipod_control, notes, photos, etc. If you are trying to save all of your music then the ipod_control folder is the only one you need to worry about. Open the ipod_control folder then open the music folder. Copy each one of those folders (should look similar to these: F00, F01 ...) onto your computer. You can do this by creating a new folder on your desktop and dragging the files into the folder. Open itunes and insert the new folder you created on your computer's desktop into: library - Music. And there you go! You can now transfer songs from your ipod to your computer without losing any files.
