    I use Senuti (Notice how it's iTunes in reverse?) and it was free, but the developers have started charging for it, you can download it here:

    Hope this helps...

    Nope... although you could try Floola (Download Link), which is also available free for Windows, Mac and Linux!

    Hope this Helps...

    Sharepod is also good and for Windows, and should work with the iPod touch so you can try that.

    Senuti now costing $18 sounds like a total rip-off to me. Thank god I've got the old free version. EDIT: Has someone got a copy of the old GPL'd source code for it?

    Sorry, I just looked on the Senuti Website at the system requirements:

    System Requirements

    Mac OS X 10.4+
    Any iPod or iPhone
    Optional: iTunes v6.0.2+ for iTunes integration

    Although, Floola is great on Windows too.

    Is that not a dodgy copy for Windows or something?

    DiskAid (free) will let you copy your music files off your ipod, but they'll have weird code names like xdwes3453.mp3, which you'll have to fix by reimporting them into iTunes. If you have them tagged correctly, that is!

    TuneAid ($19) will do the above automatically.

    Both programs can be found here:
