    Hey I saw the macrumor guide for recovering songs from the iPod but still am not sure

    My hard drive failed so I need to get songs off my iPod Touch 1st Gen.

    This is just a one time thing so I'd rather not spend money... I don't need any features like sharing with friends or constant backing up.

    I just need to back up all my music (with album art) and hopefully all my apps.
    I couldn't find info on backing up apps from these different pieces of software.

    I'm on Windows.
    If there's absolutely no way to do all of this on Windows, I can probably search and beg and borrow someone's mac.

    Thank you for any possible help

    As far as I know no one has added the ability to backup applications at the present moment. Only songs and photos can be recovered.

    Well I figured it out.
    I used Music Rescue. Every 50 songs it stops to tell you it's a trial.
    Not all of my artwork transferred over, but a high majority.
    After that, I clicked Transfer purchases from iPod within iTunes to get my apps back. It takes forever, so no answer as of yet.
