is there anyway to restore an ipod and exporting music to save it?

ok, so the deal is, i jailbroke my ipod and i want to restore it without losing all my music. is there anyway that i can backup ONLY my ipod music/playlists to some kind of file on my computer and then restore my ipod to it's original settings and put the music back on all on one sitting?

please help me out! thank you!!!


edit: when it says backup ipod, does that back up everything? or only the settings?

Do you not have all the music on the computer anyway? Or have you deleted it and only have the copy on the iPod?

If you still have all the music on your computer and in iTunes, once you restore it will just copy it back over.

So what? It will take less time to copy songs to the iPod than from the iPod. If your songs are still on your computer, just do a restore and then resync.

What do you mean manually?

Uncheck the manual sync box.

It would be easier (and faster) just to make a playlist in iTunes including the songs you want on your ipod, and after the restore, sync ONLY this playlist.
