    This is what I had to end up doing, thanks for the suggestion.


    I guess I shouldnt blame just Apple for the difficulty in transferring ipod to computer, the RIAA probably deserves a lot of the blame.

    No problem. Glad i could help. Also i'm not a 100% sure but maybe if the you're using a new computer than the one originally synced with ipod, then maybe your itunes account is different and it is not authorized to transfer the songs. Maybe that could have been the problem. Just kinda thought of it now.

    Think about this, not everybody knows about torrents. If you are basic user and does not know third party softwares around the world of the internet, isn't it kinda ridiculous? I hope you are not taking torrents for granted though.

    It is like saying you bought a new tv with a remote, only to find out that you need a receiver to get the remote to work.
    There's a lot of things like that. I mean why can''t we get microsoft office for free then? Everything costs money in this day and age to do. I know not everyone knows about torrents but then their needs are probably not ones that require torrents. Most people need a computer for microsoft word and streaming the net. That's fine and they should buy a windows. However if your experience is not so limited, you should definitely look into buying a mac. Trust me, i was so anti-microsoft before i bought my mac. I told so many ppl the same things you guys did. But then i actually used one and really guys its amazing. I didn't buy a car in order to save up for my imac. That's how impressed i was by it. And to this day, i absolutely do not regret my decision. And the thing is, i don't even design anything or edit videos or anything that extreme. The mac just makes your everyday computer use fun. Everything from writing essays to watching youtube clips is extremely easier and better than on a windows.

    Also, I never take torrents for granted. I really appreciate the uploaders and seed even though it costs me a good amount of money to do so.

    So, I will stick with MSFT and Google and spread my experience as far as can.

    For your iPhone, download the dropbox app. It makes it very simple to transfer stuff from your computer to your phone.

    the only real problem I've ever had with Apple is the CD drive on our iMac. Other than that all of our Apple products work just fine (iPod Touch, iPhone, iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad, older iPods).

    On an older ipod, if you set the itunes to not auto start when you plug in your ipod, then switch it to hard disk mode, then unhide all files and folders you CAN get your music off it.

    Problem is the filetype is only readable in itune or an ipod. And you will not recognize the file names. They are named something like a0001, a0002 and so on.

    My laptop crashed and I did this to get all my music, but it was a pain and extremely disorganized since these files were in a million different folders. It also forced me to stay with apple since all my music can only be read by their devices. Said **** it and torrented everything over again.

    It's my god damn music to begin with going though such a headache to get it is ridiculous. Why I avoid ipods, and apple products in general to this day.

    That's pretty easy to do.

    As myself (and others) have said, even if you get in a predicament where the only spot your music collection can be recovered from is an iPod/iPhone there are plenty of reasonable ways to do so with ALL the information (track name, artist name, playlist info, album artwork, etc.) transferred to your new location properly. It's really as easy as: set it up, walk away, and let the program do it's work.

    If someone broke in to your house and stole all your physical CD's would you be blaming record companies for making CD's so thin, portable, and easy to steal? 'Cause that makes about as much sense as blaming Apple for you losing your music collection; most computers crash at some point, you should have been aware and prepared for this (and even if you weren't there was still much better options for recovering your music off your iPod than the one you ended up deciding on).

    Or is spending $20 just WAY too much of a hardship to recover all the music you've worked so hard to steal over the years?
    Didn't have a home computer or external at the time, was living at college. Never said I was a serious music collector in the first place, because I'm not.

    Yes it is too much of a hardship. Anyways programs like that shouldn't be necessary in the first place. Considering I can just use my psp and keep all the files in normal format.

    I hate apple products in general, overpriced trendy nonsense. Only ipod I got was a refribed one for about 70$ and once this happened I just switched to a psp.

    I never really said I blamed apple for losing my music either. It's my laptop's fault the hard drive crashed after 5 months. It's just stupid they change the format to something only apple products can read, and they do that for obvious reasons.

    Keep up the ad hominems if you want though.

    Example? Music purchased on itunes wont work on any other online music player(that I've tried), and any music put onto an ipod gets changed to that same format.

    Maybe they changed it then. Because when I got the stuff off my ipod it sure as hell didn't work on anything else. It was impossible to tell what was what as well with the file names and everything being changed.

    I wouldn't know if it changed because I sure as hell dont keep up with apple stuff.

    i didn't go through and read the rest of the post, but if this is a classic(it sounds like it is), and you're running windows its pretty easy to get the files off the ipod

    the easy solution is here:

    (note i did not watch the whole video, but i watched to the point where a key step is mentioned)

    However, you are definitely wrong with your statement that "any music put onto an ipod gets changed to that same format". You can choose multiple formats for your music files (I prefer AAC over mp3 or FLAC) that would work on just about any computer or portable music player.

    Your problem with the file names being changed was because you used a crappy application to export the music from your iPod back to your computer. I had to do about the same thing after accidentally erasing everything from my home computer, and it all was labeled perfectly (even the playlist info) once I found the proper application.
    Fair enough.

    I didn't even use a application to get them off my ipod really. Just went straight into the folders and pulled them out.

    Looks like that was my fault then.
