Many years ago, when I was a PC user, I got an iPod 30G. My PC died, and I never tried to get the movies and music off the iPod.

Now I am in the process of merging all of my itunes from all my computers, and getting the music files from all my phones into a single iTunes account.

So here is the problem. The 30G iPod is PC formatted, and I downloaded iTunes to my PC at work, and now when I try to sync, it says I can only sync to the PC's library (nothing) or transfer my itunes purchases.

Is there any way I can get my files from the Ipod to the iTunes? I have a lot of music and movies I really do not want to loose.

If I still had the computer, I could just get the files, but it is long gone.

Anyone know what I can do to save the music and movies?

There have been quite a few of tools that can do that over the years, but in doing some checking, all the free ones have not seen updates in years. One in particular, which hadn't seen an update since 2004, apparently wiped out one user's music completely when used in Snow Leopard.

Your best bet is probably iRip. The developer has maintained it and has a good rep for simple but effective software. At 20 bucks, it's a little pricey, but I don't know if I'd trust anything else today.
Download iRip for Mac - Transfer songs, videos, books, contacts, and more from your iPod or iPhone to your Mac. MacUpdate.com


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

There's also Pod to Mac (or in your case, Pod to PC). Well maintained, good developer, quality product.
