Getting Music off of iPod

Ok, right now I have a 3rd Gen 15 gig iPod that I use on my iBook.

Being as my iBook only has a 40 gig hard disk, every once in a while I delete the copy of the music that's on my laptop, and run the music straight off of the iPod, as to conserve hard drive space.

I also have several gigs of music lingering on my parents PC that I need to remove.

Now, I have two problems I have to solve...

First, How can I get music off of my iPod and back on my laptop, and what should I do to get all of my mp3s from the PC on my iPod without having the iPod automatically formating to the PCs playlist which is completely different. I'm trying not to lose any music here, or have to burn a half dozen CDs.

podutil is really good too. it's free if you don't register it, and the only thing registering it gets you is like 3 or 4 features of "advanced mode." i've found that i can live without those features, so i've never registered it, and it works great.

I really like iPod Access (v3.1.5 now I think). It will load the songs right into iTunes for you as well. Trial copies 5 at a time otherwise fully functional, registration is $10 and instantaneous, I thought it was worth it.

Version Tracker has it here: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/17877
