I don't know if you have access to a Windows box, but if you do, this software works pretty well(iDump):

Another excellent software is senuti that will copy all your songs in your Mac iTunes library
however, songs that you did buy on iTunes store can be transferred on your new mac by a menu command.

Try TouchCopy from wideanglesoftware.com I've used it to recover all my music/playlists/photos/videos from ipod onto Macbook when HDD failed.

You get two options. Copy into a backup folder or copy into iTunes.

I am personally a fan of the Senuti software. It costs money for the software but there is a free 30 day trial.


This is a good program for copying your music from ipod to itunes. works for iphone, ipod touch etc. Try it out!

You can also try Pod to Mac.

You've already received answers for the first part. Once you do that (i.e. get the music into iTunes on your Macbook), your second task is easy: Simply attach your shuffle.

iTunes will ask you whether you want to sync your entire library; click Yes.
