What if ... ? Use the iPod Music Liberator for all of your iPod music copying needs.

    as said, sif you need a this, sif pay money. there are freeware alternatives, or you can do it manually. that said, does ephpod or any of the other freeware programs allow you to add music/if you just drag and drop music into one of the folders, eg f00 or whatever it is, will the ipod read that song?

    Or you could, you konw, just use windows explorer to copy them off. I know it’s a stretch to use the operating system the way it was intended to be used, but hey, give it a try, you might like it.

    right, so i used tinkertool to copy my hidden ipod music folder to my new hd. I then copied my itunes folder to the same HD. I can see that both folders are there but I can’t get itunes to recognize the the ipod folder within it’s library. The ipod music folder still seems to be hidden to itunes. How can I make these files be permanent in the itunes library?

    Ok, so you can mount your ‘own’ iPod as a hard drive by selecting ‘enable disk share’ in iTunes.  But does this process work with someone elses iPod?  So I can help them back up their music to my hard drive :)

    I asked this question a while ago, once you have ‘rescued’ your songs to the PC using Podutil how do you get them back into Itunes from the folders they are stored in?
