My friend got a Mac and got rid of her PC without transferring her iTunes library and her ripped CDs. She has an iPod Classic with all of her ripped CDs on it. She also still owns the CDs. Without re-ripping all the CDs, is there a way to mount the iPod as a hard drive and retrieve the songs back into iTunes? I get two options when hooking up the iPod to iTunes: 1) Sync the iPod to iTunes which it says will remove all content on the iPod and replace it. 2) View the device in iTunes and play the songs, but I cannot drag them onto the hard drive and then into iTunes. I want to get the songs off the iPod Classic and into iTunes so they will sync to the iPod from here on out. Is there a way to do this without re-ripping all the CDs? I searched the forums for "iPod Classic" and "recover songs" but no hits. Sorry if this is a duplicate thread. I've seen third-party software that claims to do this sort of thing but it does not look like trustworthy software from reputable developers so I am reluctant to purchase and download any of these tools. Incidentally, the Mac is running Lion. I found instructions that indicated command-line stuff you could do to get the Mac to recognize the iPod as a hard drive but trying to run those commands in the Lion terminal yielded a message saying the commands were not recognized. Thanks in advance.
