    Ok I've got an iMac G4 and recently it's hard drive just decided to pack in, so I've taken it into a apple specialist who have replaced it's hard drive. However I have now lost all of my songs, to mention other things, yet I have all of my songs stored on my 3G iPod. I am currently running the last addtion of iTunes (6.0.1) and have got my iPod settings to automatic update. So how can I transfer all of my songs back from my iPod to my iTunes library?

    You can download and use Senuti to transfer anything back in reverse.

    BTW your thread title is quite misleading. ;)

    title says you got a dead hdd , but you main message says you looking to get your tunes of ya pod

    should have been something like " How do i get my tunes of my Pod?"

    but don't worry about it

    hard drive problem, PLEASE HELP!


    If you are trying to get your tunes off your ipod, look into getting a program called "redchair" it allows you to view the view the contents of your ipod....not sure if it works on a mac but your can always run it on a friends PC and transfer the tunes to his pc and then back to yours.


    I have a worse dilema, my laptop fell on one of our local freeways when the saddlebags on my motorcycles broke off. I was able to save the hard drive but now I don't know how to go about retrieving all my information and files from it to transfer it to my new computer. My old computer was a titanium G4 and now I am stuck using a slow ibook.

    does anyone know how I can access my hard this drive?

    please help!:confused:

    Buy a 2.5" Firewire hard drive enclosure
    Install the drive removed from the remains of your Powerbook
    Hook it up via firewire to any modern Mac.
