How to tranfer the song from ipod classic to pc

Hi Kelvin, if you want to know how can you transfer music from iPod to computer, you can find it not hard to accomplish with your computer. Here are the steps.
1. Plug your iPod to computer with the USB cable. The computer will read your iPod as an external disk.
2. Double-click your iPod icon and open it. Click "Tools" in the toolbar, then Folder Options > View > Show all hidden files.
3. You will find a folder named "iPod_Control". Double-click to open it and you will find all the songs in your iPod, but they are randomly organized.
4. Copy and paste the files to your computer, and then launch iTunes.
5. Click Edit > Preferences > Advanced, and then click the "Change" button to choose the folder which is used for saving the iPod music files.
6. Check "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.

Then you can both get the iPod music in your computer and iTunes Music Library. This is a very useful trick for the users to extract music from iPod. iTunes is one-way transfer software, so it only allows you to transfer music from computer to iPod, but never transfer files back.

Itunes will not recognize my polaroid pmp350-4 music player. Can't save my music I bought on itunes.

For Windows folks, try iTunes Agent which you can get at CNET Download.

If you don't have the latest .NET framework for Windows, you'll get an error, so go to and get the latest version and install it.

Once you have iTunes agent up and running it will prompt you to configure it. If you've never used it before, just say no. You're indicating you don't have a previous profile you need to transfer. If all goes well, iTunes will launch and a pop-up will tell you iTunes Agent is ready to sync your devices.

To add a new device, make sure it's connected to your computer, then right click on the iTunes Agent icon in the system tray and choose preferences.

Press New. You'll get a warning letting you know that the first time you sync, all the data on the new device will be erased. So, be sure you have everything off the device before you go ahead.

Then fill out the fields, naming your device, and so on. Point the folder to the place on the new device where you want the music to go. You can choose particular playlists to associate with this device. Once you're done, press save.

To sync, right click on iTunes Agent and select synchronise devices.

Your selected songs will now be synced to the device

    Download "Itunes Agent" from here:

  • 2work-mp-playercell-phonepsp-portable-1.2-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href',''); }); "Setting up iTunes Agent"


    Setting up "iTunes Agent" to recognize your player:

    It's real easy, after you've installed "iTunes Agent" it'll be on your "Desktop"....."Left Click" it.

    It'll now be in your "System Tray"... navigate to your "System Tray" and "Right Click" on the little "iTunes Agent" icon, click "Preferences..." , click the "New" button and set-up your configuration, fill in the fields that need to be set-up in order for your player to be recognized by "iTunes Agent".

    Follow the steps from the "iTunes Agent" pic I provided.

    Your "Music Folder" field specifies where your music will be saved on your player, you could name this folder to anything you like example: "BigA2infinity's Jamz Folder" or if you like to have your player set up just like an iPod and save your files in separate folders i.e. 90' Music, Music Videos, My Top Rated, Recently Added, Recently Played, Top 25 Most Played.

    Or you could just leave the "Music Folder" field blank and have your music saved to the "ROOT" of your player example: "Removable F: drive" .

    In order for your player to be recognized, it must be recognized by a specific name.... in the "Recognize by folder/file" field type in a specific name, example: "BigA's Mp3 Player 2009" .

    So basically every folder name you've created in "iTunes Agent" set-up, make an extra folder with the same name in the "ROOT" of your player.

    Example #1: My music will be save in "BigA2infinity's Jamz Folder" on my player/mp3.

    Example #2: Just like an iPod, in order for an iPod to be recognized it needs a specific name in the "ROOT" of the iPod.... so create a folder in the "ROOT" of your player to recognize your none iPod/iPod-knock-Off/PSP/Mp3 Player, I created a folder named "BigA's Mp3 Player 2009" in the "ROOT" of my player/Mp3/PSP/iPod Knock-Off so it could be recognized.

    Follow the steps from the "iTunes Agent" pic I provided (same pic from Step 2).

  • 4work-mp-playercell-phonepsp-portable-1.4-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href',''); }); "Setting up iTunes Agent"

    "Fourth" and last step....

    The very last field in set-up is the "Associate with playlist" you could set this option to recognize any playlist you like, if you would like a playlist created with the name of your player set the option to "Use device name" .

    I am trying to download just a couple of pieces of music from someone's ipod onto my computer without transferring everything from my computer onto her ipod and messing it up for her. How do I do that?

    1. Have the "View Hidden Files and Folders" option enabled. To view them go to my documents and then tools>folder options>view. Then click the "Show hidden files and folders" under the "Hidden files and folders" section. (You will not have to scroll down the list to see it)
    2. Plug the iPod into the computer that you wish to back it up on.
    3. Open up a Windows Explorer Window, from the accessories folder of the programs listing.
    4. Navigate to the "My Computer" icon.
    5. Expand the folder, and find the drive that has the name of your iPod.
    6. Expand your iPod's folder, and find the folder: "iPod Control".
    7. Expand "iPod Control" and find the folder "Music".
    8. Look for a series of folders with strange names.
    9. Select all of the files. Do this by going to: Edit>Select All>. Alternatively, you may hold the Control key and click all of the folders.
    10. Copy all of the folders, by going to Edit>Copy or by right clicking one of the selected folders and clicking copy. This will copy all of the folders.
    11. Paste the music in the desired folder by using Edit>Paste.
    12. Open each folder, and copy the MP3 files into the desired folder, or you can leave them where they are. The music will have non understandable names, like "EDCI" and "DLXE", 4 letter names are normal.
    13. Open the music up in the music player of your choice if you wish. Do this when all of the music has been extracted from the original iPod folders.
    • TIPS
    • Most music player programs can decode the names into the original names, and artists.
    • This works on both PCs and Macs, but these instructions are for PCs. Mac computers work similarly to this.
    • The copying of the music takes some time.
    • This can be used to copy friend's music.
    • Get a good MP3-Tagger-Program e.g. mp3tag (freeware) and automatically rename the files if you want to use them on your PC
    • Do not try and manually rename each song.
    • Do NOT mess around with any other file(s) on the iPod
    • Do not remove any songs from the list

    Connecting ipod to a new laptop

    You can actually (or could have) transfer the songs from your
    Laptop & iPod by using you iPod like a removable
    Hard Disk Drive

    Here is the Apple sanctioned method:

    Note: While you can use the Transfer Purchase From iPod option under the File menu to copy iTunes Store purchases from the iPod to another computer you can't transfer songs from other sources from the iPod library to iTunes

    So you'll need to follow the steps below to use iPod as a hard disk to transfer music files from one computer to another. This process will require the use of iTunes 7 on all computers. Any computers running iTunes 6 or earlier will need to be updated to follow these steps.

    Once you have the files transferred, you'll need to authorize any iTunes Store content. If you won't be using your old computer, you'll want to deauthorize it.

    Important: Windows operating systems don't recognize Mac OS-formatted disks (HFS or HFS Plus formats), so you can't use a Mac-formatted iPod to move your music to a Windows PC.
    Switch the iPod to manual update and enable disk use The first thing you need to do is make sure have configured your iPod to enable disk use. To do this:
    1. Open iTunes on your old computer.
    2. Connect your iPod to your old computer and wait for it to appear in iTunes.
    3. Select your iPod in the Source pane under the Devices section to display your iPod preferences in the main library window.
    4. Click the Summary tab in the main iTunes window.
    5. Click the Manually manage music button. Changing from automatic updating to manual puts a check mark by Enable disk use. A message says:
    "Disabling automatic update requires manually unmounting the iPod before each disconnect."

    If you need to copy from old computer:
    Copy iTunes folder to iPod To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your iPod:
    1. Quit iTunes.
    2. Locate your iPod:
      Mac OS X: On the desktop
      Windows: In My Computer
    3. Locate your iTunes folder:
      Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
      Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
    4. Drag the iTunes folder to the iPod. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.



    • When the copy completes open iTunes.
    • Click on the iPod in the Source pane
    • Click the Eject button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window.
    • Disconnect the iPod from the computer when the "Do not disconnect" message no longer appears on the iPod screen.
    Copy music to new computer To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your new computer:
    1. Locate your Music folder (Mac OS X) or your My Music folder (Windows) on your new computer:
      Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
      Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
    2. Drag the iTunes folder in this location out to the desktop. 300173_10.gifFrom the My Music folder to the Desktop on your new PC
    • Locate the iPod on the new computer:
    • Mac OS X: On the desktop.
    • Windows: In My Computer.
    • Double-click on the iPod to open it.
    • Drag the iTunes folder from the iPod to the Music folder (Mac OS X) or My Music Folder (Windows) on your new computer. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.
    • Open iTunes
      There you go. All your music, playlists, and other information like play counts and ratings have all been moved from your old computer to your new one.
    If that doesn't cover it fully..... wow!
