Includes Read Me and Installer. Backup iTunes Tracks to DVD Makes a DVD-sized dmg and copies files in Artist:Album:song.mp3 organization to it - it works using the same xml functionality as Backup iTunes Tracks to MP3 CD, and is actually designed to work in conjunction with that script.

After starting the script to copy songs from my ipod to my itunes library, it stopped with errors stating that a song on the ipod could not be found.  After trying to run again with the same results , I noticed that some of songs on my ipod had exclamation points next the song in the left column. I can’t play these songs anymore, with the ipod docked to the computer or unplugged.

What happened?
