    All this tinkering around with my mac as resulted in tragedy. I just deteled 2,000+ songs. Yes, I did. "Didn't you backup your music?" Where do you think I deleted it from? Yes I am an ass. Big, hairy ass. But I am getting my purchased music back. But, all my "other" downloads are gone. I deserve it.:(

    Try iPod Rip to get the music from the iPod to your computer.

    you can re-rip your collection, this time using aac and a higher bit rate. using a newer version of itunes could make it go faster.

    oh wait, you meant pirated music. nevermind.

    Yup, Senuti is a great program to transfer music/video from your iPhone/iPod to another computer; it's limited to the number of files you can transfer if you are not willing to pay the fee for unlimited transfers...:(

    Sorry. You look so small and insignificant based on my view from my horse, which I am able to afford because I EARN things instead of stealing them. :)

    What I meant to say is that the OP deserves zero sympathy because he lost what he stole in the first place.

    It's good that he got his purchased music back, but I have a smug look on my face because of karma

    I guess he pirated them. Is that what "other downloads" meant? I have only 300 purchased songs in my iTunes DB; the other 5300+ are ripped from CDs (legally).

    sorry to hear.. i had a problem like this and ended up having to buy a program that allowed me to transfer from iphone to macbook.. pain in the butt i know, however as long as you got the songs on your ipod still you should be alright.

    I guess I'll just sign-up for a Rhapsody account. I am too lazy to move the songs from my iPod to my mac-daddy. Mass stupidity...

    Unless his iPod is an iPhone, he can get the songs back by accessing the iPod like a hard-drive.

    Make sure hidden files are shown. Open up the hidden folder, I forget its name off the top of my head, and all your songs are in there. The file names are gibberish 4 digit alphanumeric names, but iTunes reads the song title/artist/album from the tag information.
