    If your ipod is big enough sync your ipod to your library and then download a program(google for it) that will allow you to "sync" your ipod to your MBPro. Or you could do this: http://www.madeincr.com/2005/10/28/itunes-library-transfer/

    probably the best way to do this is with an external harddrive. there are, however, programs to get music off of ipods. check the forums for ones that will do this for you.

    Use iPod in Fat 32 format (windows/Mac compatible) then use this:

    to re-rip from iPod to Mac :)

    By far the easiest way is to connect the two with an ethernet cable and just transfer the songs over.

    if you're on a router you could just sign on to iChat/AIM, and send them through taht. would probably be the most painless way to do it.
