Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
The media player will not allow iTunes users to transfer
files from one device to the iPod library. ITunes only allows one library to
the device. This route is a unidirectional transfer problem for iPod users who
want their music to be added to other computers. You can transfer music from
your iPod to a new computer, but discovering the hidden folders on the device.
They contain information about your iPod music files, which can then be copied
to the PC. It takes only minutes to discover the hidden folders and transfer
music to start.
1. Locate the USB cable that came with your iPod device.
Plug the cable into the groove bottom of your iPod. Connect the other end of
the cable to an available USB port on your computer.
2. Turn on the computer. Wait for the machine to boot. Click
the "Start" button and then select Control Panel. Double click on the
"Portable Media Devices" icon.
3. Double-click your iPod in the list of available units.
Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Choose the
option "Show hidden files and folders" option.
4. Open the folder called "\ iPod_Control \
Music". This folder contains all audio files on your iPod device. The
tracks are divided into sub-folders by artist. Then click and drag the entire
music folder to your desktop or drag the individual tracks of the sub-folders.
Your computer will automatically copy the files to your hard drive.
