    My friend uses windows and owns a ipod mini. He recently got a virus and lost all his music on his windows (but has it all on his ipod). i searched the forums and because this is the same computer he usually updates from we didnt know if it would automatically update a blank libary.

    is there a way to get his music off his ipod and onto itunes
    please help

    When it comes to Macs, there is a program called iPod Rip which allows you to copy songs from iPod to iTunes. Try looking for program similar to this one on version tracker.

    This is one thing that is almost actually easier on Windows. Simply enable viewing of hidden files (can't remember how to off the top of my head, but it's pretty easy). Then drag them onto the PC's hard drive. Of course, before you do this, don't let iTunes sync with the iPod. It'll ask if it can, select no.

    I was in the same situation about a month ago... and I found this at It's a program called iPod->Folder. Here's the link. The only problem with this program is that you get weird file names, like NX90 or something.

    Hope this helps.
