    I just bought an ipod mini and loaded it with tunes from my dads PC (sigh) now I need to copy these tracks into my library HOW....

    I have tried these two options from previous posters :


    ( Its just as easy on the mac.
    Use cmd-shift-G and type in /Volumes/"your ipod"/ipod_control/

    Then you are good to go...

    You can also use the terminal.
    The iPod_control folder i just an hidden folder, its because apple has to follow some rules by RIAA or some other copyrights..

    I just enable FW Disk mode and copy my songs manually. Since iTunes renames everything and reorganizes them strangely I find it easier to deal with that way too.)

    of which neither worked.. :(

    I am running itunes 4.7 with iPod2004-11-15 software under Mac OS X 10.3.6

    I NEED A SOLUTION OR I AM GONNA CRY :(
    Boo Hoo Hoo........
    You get z idea yah.

    Please if anybody has a solution I am at my whits end.....

    HEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP...........

    A Solution is Here!

    I had the same problem.

    If you are still wondering where how to, try going to Google and searching for 'iPod Download', or something like that. Some has written a simple application that embeds itself into iTunes, on a Mac. If you are using a PC, than...well, good luck!

    But anyways, whenever you conect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes, it will run and give you a list of you songs on your iPod. You can then drag them to the library icon.

    Hope this helps! If not, post and I will look for something else!

    Well, whaddya know?!

    believe it or not, but i am copying over my stuff right now! I use iPodRip. Its shareware, but you get 10 free transfers (not 10 songs but entire transfer "sessions," if you will). Go to macupdate.com and do a search for it. Best app ever. A real life saver in some occassions!


    Let me know how that goes for ya!
