    Guys,

    My computer broke and lost all my songs that were syncing to my IPOD, can anyone recommend a free software for Ripping the songs from my IPOD?

    Cheers

    no program required.

    go to my computer
    go to your iPod
    tools, folder options
    view hidden files/folders
    go to ipod control
    go to music

    it'll have some strange names, but the ID tags are still there.

    Copy it anywhere you choose to. I would suggest making an IPod folder on your computer somewhere.

    OK, I thought they could have been put to the ITunes folder.

    I think I understand now, thanks.

    Place music on desktop, open iTunes, edit > preferences, advanced tab and tick 'Copy files to iTunes media folder' and 'Keep iTunes folder organized'

    Once done, drag your backup folder that you made to the iTunes window and it should place all the music (with the right file names) in your iTunes folder ready for syncing again.

    Just put them on a folder on your desktop. Make sure that you have iTunes set to keep your music folder organised. When you import the folder from your desktop to your library, it will sort them back into folders and rename them for you. Then you can delete the folder on your desktop. [​IMG]
