I don't have an ipod, but do you not just connect it to your pc, open ituned, select the songs from your ipod THROUGH itunes - drag and drop them into your library and they should copy. When finished, eject your old ipod and connect the new one. Drag and drop the songs from itunes into the new iPod.

Again I'm not sure if this is correct, but this is how most things function in itunes. If not, someone correct me.

How to delete music off your ipod


Hi David,
There are two ways to delete music from your iPod. The first is to delete songs in your iTunes library and have iTunes sync your library to your iPod automatically when you plug your iPod into the computer.
The second is to manually delete music by resetting the options to a manual setting and deleting music directly from your iPod without affecting the songs in your iTunes library. Follow these steps to delete music from your iPod.

Synching Itunes


To Transferring Playlists

If you want not only your content but also your playlists to exist on your new computer, you will want to transfer a copy of all your playlists from your old computer. To do this, choose File > Library > Export Library on your old computer. Save the XML file that is created to your desktop.


Send the playlists file to yourself as an e-mail attachment, use an external drive, or use file sharing to move the playlists file to your new computer. Once the file is on your new computer, open iTunes and choose File > Library > Import Playlist. The import process will remove any items from the playlists that you didn't share via Home Sharing.

Can i transfer purchases from any iphone to my itune?


Yes, just plug in the iPhone into the computer via USB that you have the iTunes on and you sync it by clicking "sync" and a message will pop up asking if you want to transfer your purchases to your library and at that point you click "yes".

How do i fix my itunes? it flashes on and then off


To fix this, you have to make sure that the song is really in your hard drive. For example, when you have a song in your My Music folder and you want to put it in your iTunes library, all you have to do is to drag this particular song into iTunes. Then you will see the song in iTunes and then you can play it. You can load as many songs as you like even add a whole folder to iTunes library. You can drag the whole folder or from iTunes, select Add Folder to Library.

When you want to transfer songs and movies to your iPod or iPhone, just drag the song to the icon of your iPod or iPhone and then it will automatically download it on your mp3 player.

Try TouchCopy - it copied all my songs, videos, playlists, playcounts, artwork, and other song data to my new iTunes library. It's very easy to use, and it stops your iPod from auto-syncing. Works with all iPods and iPhone

Here is how to use TouchCopy

  1. Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
  2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop
  3. Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer. TouchCopymay start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTuneswill not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running.These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.
  4. Now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want toselect all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left andclick on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar. In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars and notes.
  5. Whenyou are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, useiTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content toit.

Have songs from I tunes, need to transfer to a new I pod.How do we do this?


You should be able to drag the songs from iTunes to your iPod (as long as Manually Manage Music is checkmarked). It will then pop up a dialogue box asking if you would like to authorize. Select yes, type in your apple login info (that you use for iTunes) and voila. Success.
If you are trying to get songs off one iPod and onto another -- you can transfer your entire music library from your iPod to your computer, then use them to populate your library. Then put library on new ipod. All you have to do is enable showing of hidden files and folders (on both mac and pc). The folders titled 00 to 49 will have all your music in random letter names. You'll find em :)

Itunes More then One Computer


iTunes subscriptions are tracked using a file called ITunes Music Library.xml. which is stored on your computer. This file keeps the log for both music files and podcast subscriptions, and is set up for the first time when you register your Ipod in Itunes on the specific computer.
The file is not web-based, so each iTunes library is linked to each computer.

It is possible to download songs from an iPod to more then one computer, but this wont share same download library.
