    Okay, I'm new here. I just joined to ask a question.

    I have an iPod touch that I was using with my PC. My computer recently crashed, and I purchased a MacBook Pro. I am trying to transfer my music from my iPod to my new Mac music library, and I can't figure out how.

    I found another forum that said to use Senuti, I tried, but it was not successful. (It doesn't "see" my iPod, even after following the instructions over and over).

    Does anyone have another idea? I know that my iPod is basically just a portable hard drive... so there has to be a way!

    Thank you in advance for you help!!!

    Actually, the iPod touch is the exception to the "hard drive' concept. iPod nano, Shuffle, classic are all flash/hard drives. If you bought ALL of your content on the iPod... then you can connect it to the computer (mac or pc) and right click the device, transfer all purchases. If not, then... use a program other than senuti since you say it doesn't work for you.

    This is exactly why we back up our data, boys and girls.

    To the OP, use Senuti. I recently did when my HDD died, and I recovered 90 or so percent of my music no problem. The 10% I didn't wasn't on the iPod. Congratulations on your mac purchase as well! Senuti Link

    NOTE: This will not work for 2nd Gen iPod touch

    use iDump. Thats what I used I had to completely restore my computer to factory settings. I worked beautifully. Just plug your iPod into the computer and then run the program and it basically does everything else.

    p.s. I think this might be for pc only. Sorry.

    Use ipoddisk, do a google search for it, its google code. It works great for me, I have gotten a lot of music off of my friends ipods that were formatted for both pc and mac.
