    Hey guys... I can't seem to find a way to transfer music from a friend's iPod Touch (or any iDevice for that matter) to iTunes on my Mac. I have a feeling that its an Apple "thing" to not be able to transfer music from an iDevice to a computer. Am I correct? :eek:

    Thanks

    There is few freeware tools on Internet that do this like sharepod for example! Try to use Google my friend it's a wonderful tool :)

    Not judging, but I think it's against forum rules to post about how to do it. That's probably the only reason you won't get the answer you want on here. I personally am not sure how to do it. I only know how to get music from computer to computer, not directly from the iDevice.

    First, you have to know Apple doesn't like the way to transfer music from an iPod Touch to a computer or other portable devices.
    But i still found lots of apps can do that task, like the popular iMedia Transfer for Mac, though it's a shareware program. If you tried the free trial version, you're limited to transfer 10 files from iPod Touch to a computer at a time.
