    Hey guys, i am getting a new MBP on wednesday...i have a 5.5G iPod Video (80GB) and i want to transfer all my music from it to my mac. The thing is my old windows PC only has like 30GB of HD space so I didn't store the music on the PC...its only on the iPod. So i was wondering if there is any way to get the music onto the PC from my iPod and then from there onto my mac. Or can I plug my iPod into the mac and just copy it from there (i thought that you have to reformat your iPod which would lead to music being lost)

    Just don't let iTunes get in on the act when it auto-runs - ignore it and don't let it format your ipod till you've ripped all the music off by running this as a separate process.This will let you rip direct to your mac.

    When the music's off you can let iTunes format the Ipod for Mac , and then drop your music back into itunes ( I prefer to drag and drop back in manually) then synch up and your done.
