My pbook recently encountered a lovely HD failure.

A new HD later, I am wondering whether it is possible to have Address Book take the contacts directly from my iPod? In iTunes it is all about moving from Address Book to iPod... Can I do the reverse?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, iTunes store all the contacts as a single file in the Contacts folder in the iPod. Just drag the file to your computer and open it with Address Book. It should import all the Contacts back.

Thanks nightelf, I'll try that out.

Is it the same with iCal calendars on the iPod?
