    I have a 5 year old 120 gig iPod classic. It's stopped working. No sound comes out, but all menus work just fine. I want to buy a new classic and transfer the music, but how do I do that? The music that is on the broken classic isn't backed up anywhere. The computer HD that had all of the music crashed years ago.

    So anyway to take the music on my classic and transfer to a new classic?

    Thanks

    Have you tried syncing it to iTunes and doing a backup of it on your current computer HDD? If you can get it to sync with iTunes, then the backup you save can be used on the new classic.

    If I try and sync it to my iTunes, it will delete everything on the iPod, no?

    Buy Senuti, transfer songs from iPod to iTunes, get rid of old iPod, transfer songs from iTunes to new iPod.

    Should be fine as it will download everything into iTunes.
