Sweet product! Only had one lil problem but nothing to hate the thing over.  EVEN like how I downloaded like 500 or songs from a friends iPod and iPodRip placed everything in iTunes for me.  No importing music or anything.  All done for me, perfect companion for iTunes….

I STILL haven’t gotten an email from the developer dispite urgent emails on their site, and posts here.  After 3 months, I’ve given up and I am no longer using this program, which at one time was fantastic but just stopped working for me. 

If someone from the developer could get back to me and let me know what the heck is up, I might want to buy the program, otherwise I’m doing it the old fashion way.  Since using the program I have hundreds of duplicate files and this is a huge problem for me and my ipod.

My hard drive got fried and had to intsall a new one.  Luckily, my ipod wasn’t plugged in at the time.  I downloaded rip and couldn’t get it to work… really.  It uploaded a small piece of a song each time I started the program. The transfer rate stayed at zero. Any suggestions?

I can’t speak for Macs, but with iTunes for Windows if you disabel the automatic iPod syncing you can listen to music off the iPod.

This program is great!!  It took me a bit to get it set up, but it saved my whole library after a friend accidentally deleted all of my music while copying it off my external HD.  (I have a PC formatted ipod, but ended up copying everything over to a new mac).  Now I’m just trying to find as good an app to copy everything to my PC.
