    Ripping music from Ipod to PC

    A reader points out a straightforward way for Windows users to transfer music from an iPod to your hard drive, without extra software:
    1. Connect the iPod to your PC. If iTunes starts syncing (ie erasing) your music automatically, hit the X in the upper right hand corner of iTunes display, to the left of the search box, to stop it.
    2. In Control Panel, Portable Media Devices, double-click your iPod.
    3. In the Tools menu -> Options, in the View Tab, check "Show hidden files and folders."
    4. Navigate to the Music folder. On my 2nd gen 'pod, the full path is
      Portable Media Devices\GINA'S IPOD (F\iPod_Control\Music
    5. Select all the music folders, and drag and drop them into a folder on your hard drive, or directly into iTunes.
    And you're done! The iPod music folder structure is strange and inexplicable, but once you move your files into iTunes you can set it to automatically organize your folder by artist and album to clean that up. (To do this, in iTunes Edit menu, choose Preferences and in the Advanced tab, check "Keep iTunes Music Folder organized.")
    If you give this a go, lemme know how it goes. I'll ammend the instructions with any additional info for other versions of Windows and iPods. Thanks, Shelby!


    from IPod: How to copy songs from your iPod to your PC


    this is helpful for people (like me) who steal music via ipod, it eliminates the need for an itunes username and password that is usually tied to the ipod itself.

    which would be the problem, Vista handles differently than XP, and i'm not sure how it runs anymore.
