Can I transfer my songs to a new computer using my iPod?
Hi all! I am new here and I have quick question. I tried reading through the wiki explanation for this, but it didn't make a lot of sense. I am getting a macbook as part of my christmas. I was wondering what is the best and easiest way to transfer my songs from my iPod to my new computer? I would just try and transfer them all from my old computer, but it got a virus and crashed completely, so the only place I have my music is on my iPod. What do you all think I should do?
sorry if this has been asked a million times or if the wiki explains it perfectly and I'm just slow
Thanks for any and all help!

Yes you can. You can use Senuti on a Mac to transfer music from any iPod or iPhone.
It's actually possible to get music off an iPod (but not an iPhone or iPod Touch) without extra software, but that requires a little Terminal work. Not a lot, but some people are scared of the command line.
If you'd like to do that, plug your iPod in to the Mac. When iTunes asks to sync, DON'T. Make sure "Enable Disk Use" is checked. Open Terminal (from /Applications/Utilities)
Type the following. Replace <name of iPod>. If it's Windows formatted, it'll be all upper case with punctuation characters replaced by underscore ... it'll be easy to know what folder in /Volumes is the iPod:
cd /Volumes/<name of iPod>/iPod_Control cp -R Music ~/iPodMusic/.
From Finder, drag the iPodMusic folder into iTunes. iTunes will import the music, replacing the F10 etc with the correct track/album names. When that's done you can delete ~/iPodMusic.
