Get my Mac iPod music onto a Windows computer?
I've been searching for quite a while all over the web and am more confused than ever so I thought I'd ask this question for myself.
I have a Mac-formatted iPod with music that I'd like to transfer to a Windows computer. What is the best and easiest way to do this? I do not want to reformat the iPod for a PC or do anything else. I just want to get the music on my Windows machine.
Also, I have an external hard drive that I backup via Time Machine. Is it possible to simply plug the hard drive into the USB port on the Windows machine, locate the iTunes music files, and then copy them to Windows? Does using Time Machine make this difficult?
Thank you so much!

Windows by itself cannot read the HSF+ file format of Mac disks... Try MacDrive 7 for HSF+ readibility, including HSF+ iPods
Mac: 2011 Air 13" i5 1.7 256gb
Desktop: XPS 8500 i7 3.4ghz 8GB RAM, 5TB HD

OK, now that I've actually tried it, I have another question. MacDrive is installed on the Windows machine and recognizes the Mac iPod when plugged in. I can play the iPod songs through iTunes on the Windows computer, but can't locate the files to copy them to the Windows machine. Do I need to click "enable disk mode" on my Mac iTunes? Now I have it so I'm manually managing my music.
