    I know this has been rehashed to death, but I for the life of me I can't find any threads I need! So, can anyone reccomend a app to get my music off of my iPod and to my Windows :)eek: ) computer/iTunes?

    You don't need any programs in windows to get your music off the iPod. Just go into your Folders Settings and Turn off the "show hidden files". Navigate to your iPod and all your songs will be in a hidden folder somewhere. Sorry I can't give any detailed instructions since I don't have an iPod with me right now:rolleyes:

    He's on windows. Is there senuTi for windows? Anyways, just drag the folders into iTunes. It should work. If it doesn't, copy them to your desktop or something and then only import them into iTunes.

    My Hauppage WinTV drivers got corrupted. Again. I reinstalled the drivers,however my computer wouldn't boot, so I couldn't get my files off! I suppose this is what happens with a 2 year old installation of Windows XP anyway. Then I put Xandros Linux on, made my machine freeze bad so I put Windows on again. Works as well as expected anyway. I only had my iPod for a MONTH before this happend in July too!:eek: Now I can catch up on TWiT too.

    Ah yes, the wonder that is... Windows :rolleyes:
    So, you have to copy the folders one by one eh. Didn't know that, I thought you could just drag the whole shebang in and it would import it automagically or something :D
