    Copy songs

    If you bought songs from iTunes and only if you did you can manually drag songs to pc or change settings from manually to automatically synch you then may have to check settings under music field to synch. If you didn't buy your music from iTunes and it isn't backed up on your computer then you won't be able to synch. If you did purchase songs from iTunes you can also go to apple store at top of page and choose download previous purchases and it will automatically download your music from iTunes. Hope this helps

    Why don't you just turn "Home Sharing" on in iTunes on YOUR PC and YOUR Mac so you can copy YOUR music directly from the your PC to your Mac? There is no need at all to copy the music that you own from your iPod.

    I don't think i am explaining it right. My iPod touch is set to manual sync with my PC. I want to now use it on my mac, but I'm scared when i plug it into my new mac that it will erase all of my music. I also was hoping to maybe restore my iPod touch, but before i do that i want to copy the songs onto the mac and also the playlists. the songs are not all mine. so i sharing would not help.

    If the songs are not all yours, then copying them to your Mac would be illegal. That's exactly why Apple hasn't added this as a feature to iTunes.

    Use the iTunes "Backup" feature to transfer your entire PC library over to burnable DVDs. Then restore the backup on your Mac.

    There is a great program that I use. It is called iRip. If you google it, it will be the first one most likely. It is very simple to use and works great. HOWEVER, you have to buy it. I believe its $20 but if you google "iRip coupon" you can find one that gives you some % or $ amount off.

    You can download a Trial that will let you take 100 songs off of your iPod/iPhone/iPad for free.

    Hope that helps. Any other questions feel free to ask.
