I'm frustrated. When I upgraded the OS to Catalina and Apple for some reason decided to change iTunes to Music all of my songs that were not purchased but added to my iPod Classic from my CDs are gone.
How do I transfer the entire Music library from my iPod back onto my Mac Mini? I don't want to lose them if something happens to my iPod.

Music is so confusing now also, you enter search but it doesn't search the iTunes Store unless you click on it afterwards. Then you have to figure out how to buy it, you can't buy the entire wishlist at the same time and it asks for your password every time. Apple is supposed to be good at making software easy to use but this is really bad. I can't be the only one who thinks this.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated

I’m not sure if this helps but back in the day I used a program called Senuti to transfer music off any iPod ... not sure if it works with Apple Music though (one of the main reasons I have not upgraded from Mojave)

I'll check out Senuti
That link about iTunes doesn't work with iPod Classic
