Greetings everyone. I'll try to sum up my problem. I luckily have an iPod 160GB Classic. It's full. I created this on my now dead laptop, thru iTunes. I would like to back up the data within that into another hard-drive or extended hard drive. I cannot sync with my current iTunes, because that now possesses new files and music and I fear I will wipe out my entire iPod library and therefore replace it with existing iTunes library. I merely was seeking a kind of software that would permit me to copy my iPod as is, and save those files, and possibly my 7-8 hundred playlists. I cannot seem to find any valuable resources through my searches. If anyone here knows a software that can do this. Before my MAC crashed, I did find a software that would allow it, for a modest cost of only $19 or $25, but have forgotten the name and maker of that product. I would love anyone's help or suggestions in this matter. Thank you all!
