the ability to easily rip your ipod to a computer is the number one feature request by ipod users – but – it’s not going to happen, since apple has to play nice with the content providers. okay, piracy is very real concern but there are other, perfectly legit reasons you may need to do this…
if you’re on a mac, simply download senuti and follow the instructions (free 30 trial). all of the songs on the ipod will be auto added to your itunes music folder and your itunes playlist (so they’ll be loaded on the next ipod you sync)
if you’re on a pc it’s not quite so simple but still possible – you can use winamp along with it’s ipod plugins or just do this:
-Connect your iPod to your computer
-Run iTunes if it doesn’t automatically
-Go to Edit – Preferences
-Select “Manually manage songs and playlists”. This also opens up “disk use”
-Open My Computer from your desktop
-Go to the Tools menu, now select “Folder Options”
-Go to the View tab
-Click the radial button that says: “Show hidden files and folders”
- Now click OK on the Folder Options window
- In My Computer locate the iPod storage device (opened via disk use)
-Open the iPod_Control folder
-Inside you’ll find the Music folder..
there you go :)
