Put control of the iPod back in your hands with iPodRip, with the ultimate iPod companion. iPodRip supports importing of your songs to iTunes or a location on your hard drive as well as playback of songs.

What’s new in this version:

It now contains support for importing songs directly into iTunes (requires 4.5 or later) while retaining your play count and ratings information.

iPodRip also supports importing songs to your hard drive and the playback of audio directly from your iPod all within a familiar interface to iTunes users.

The next release will focus on importing playlists and bringing the feature set up to line with the Macintosh version.

License:
iPodRip will run, without limitation, for 10 sessions. After you use all of the 10 sessions, you’ll need to purchase iPodRip to use any of the application’s functionality. To purchase iPodRip, simply open the application and select “Registration…” from the “Help” menu.

System Requirements:

iPodRip works with Windows 2000 or XP.

Ok, what exactly does this program do?  You would think they would at least answer that minor question.  If it does just rip songs . . . why use it over another program?

(minor nits from a marketing geek)

Yeah, I was wondering that too!

Looks like it allows you to upload your songs from the ‘pod to the PC.  Too bad it only works on XP or 2k - poor W98SE users like me are SOL.

What’s new in this version:

[Bug Fix] - Fixed a crash on launch
[Bug Fix] - Fixed a crash on quit

now that’s tricky. If it won’t even launch, how did they ever get the program far enough so that it could crash on quit?

so wait, i know of at least 3 other apps that let me do this, and they cost approximately 10 dollars less than iPodRip.
Hrmm. You have a product you are trying to sell, but someone is giving it away for free. Sounds like a good investment!

Okay, the post really needs some fleshing out. iPodRip (the Mac version) does some really cool things. Mainly, this involves actually reading the iPod’s database, and letting you search the tags (just like in iTunes) and import entire playlists (useful if you group songs by criteria that don’t appear in the tags). If they can’t get something like that to run on Windoze, it’ll be pretty cool, certainly nothing to be dismissed as overpriced.

Why not use Anapod? It does everything this does plus more. IpodRIP sounds like it is $10 overpriced.

Have any of you tried this program on your PC?

I’ve used it for the Mac (on an iBook) and it worked perfectly…as advertised.  iTunes wouldn’t let me import songs and/or playlists from my iPod, nor could I burn CD’s.

I suggest using Ipod Agent. Ive used it and it works great.

This little program works really well for windows and I do recommend the use of it if by any chance you loose your data or files in Itunes.

perhaps none of you actually read the post, but the program claims to pull your ratings, play counts, and playlists, which is far as i can tell, none of the other programs support.
