Hi all,

Does anyone have any idea how I can transfer the music from my 30g video ipod onto my PC itunes library? You see, I've had my ipod now for almost 2 years and I'm a little paranoid about it breaking beyond repair and losing every single song I've downloaded or recorded.

I had a house fire which pretty much destroyed my entire CD collection so if I did lose the music on my pod it would really be heartbreaking for me :-(

I have 3311 songs at the mo and a few photos, but it's really the music that I'm keen to back-up asap.

I guess a download or something would be the best way to go. Free would be ideal, but I'll pay if I have to.

Thanks, and please please feel free to direct me to another post if need be.

There are applications that can do this for free or very cheap on the internet. I recently used one to backup my music on a PC - the program I used (I Think) was iPodRip They have an unrestricted demo version, but ideally would like you to pay for it. I transfered about 2900 songs and as I remember it tells you every 75 or so songs if you like it you should buy it or something like that - it won't continue copying songs until you cancel the message - so as long as you don't mind doing that every 75 songs then that will be your best bet - took all my album artwork as well for me - the photos (As I recall) can be found by browsing your iPod in Explorer on Windows and just copying them to the PCs hard drive. - if it's a mac iPhoto should import them back anyway I think.

Anyway - a google search should provide you with a couple of application choices for recovering your music from the iPod.

Hope this helps
