    Here's my problem:

    - I just got a MacBook (that's the good part).

    - I have several thousand songs on my iPod and PC.

    - I need all of that music on my MacBook.

    Is there any way to simply transfer the music straight from the iPod to the MacBook?

    (My PC isn't on a network, so there's no easy way to transfer straight from there).

    Any ideas?

    Technically, no. Apple didn't allow this option for fear that people would go to a friends house, copy all their music to your ipod, then take it home and add it to your library.

    However, there are programs that will do just that. I can't reccommend a specific one, but I'm sure if you google search you'll find what you're looking for. Or someone here will point you in the right direction.

    Or for a free program that can even copy the music into iTunes on the Mac try Senuti, or take a look at the Guide if you want more options.

    You will probably loose your ratings if you do this, to get round that first copy your 5* songs onto your iPod, create a playlist called 5* songs in iTunes, and then tell Senuti to add songs from your iPod to the 5* songs playlist, then rate those songs 5* in iTunes and repeat for your other ratings.
