Transfer Music from iPod to iPod (or iPod to Mac) (For Free)?

Hey there.
I have an iPod Touch (2nd generation) and just got a new iPod Touch.
Wondering how I could transfer my music from my 2nd gen to my new iPod?

I've spent a long while today searching for some free programs that will, if even just, let me transfer my music to my Mac, and then I can put that onto my new iPod. No luck so far..

Anybody have any suggestions? This is all pretty frustrating by now.

This program just works perfectly. I've been using for a long time now. It's free.

The free version only lets me transfer 10 songs.

WOW I have been using this program for a few years now I think a company bought it and now charge for it. Try to find an earlier version. It always gave me unlimited transfers.

Jailbreak and install OpenSSH from Cydia, then use CyberDuck to copy off the entire /var/Mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music folder onto your Mac. Then just drag and drop that folder into iTunes.

Yes I am a windows user. I will look for other free programs later for the Mac to help you. Sorry for not knowing you we're a Mac user.

How did the music get on your iPod in the first place?

If from the iTunes Music Store, then you can just re-download it on the new iPod.

Sharepod was free. Now a different company owns it and charges $30 for it

Quit being a cheapskate and expecting somebody else to do your work for free.

It's literally ludicrous.

Hey there, mister! This is an old thread.
How am I looking for people to do my work for me? Didn't know that asking if someone already knew of a program was work to others.

Also, woah. Why.. Is this.. Why is this forum here? Close down this forum! Why would such a place exist for people to ask for help? What lazy cheapskates would come to such a place to ask questions? What is the world coming to where people help other people with knowledge? Why do we even speak languages? This is all literally ludicrous

I know this is not for the Mac but this one works very well and doesn't appear to have any restrictions.

If the music was purchased from iTunes then you should be able to copy them over to your computer's iTunes via File > Transfer Purchases (File > Devices > Transfer Purchases if you have iTunes 11 on your computer). If the music came from other sources and you don't have a copy of them anywhere else, then there are some programs listed half-way down this page which might be able to copy them back : Transfer music from iPod to Mac


For photos taken with the phone then on a PC you can use the windows camera wizard, and on a Mac you can use Image Capture, iPhoto or Aperture : copying photos. To copy photos that were originally synced from a computer you will need a third-party app such as Simple Transfer which can copy them off via your wifi network. But as photos are 'optimised' when they are synced to a device, any that you then copy back to a computer may not be exactly the same as they originally were on your computer.

Huh?

Start buying music and you won't have to worry about it.
