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
  • WARNING
  • 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

Turn on the computer. Connect your iPod Touch with a computer using the USB device. Close the program starts automatically when iTunes recognizes your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click "Start" and select Control Panel. Click the "Portable Media Devices" icon. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Double-click your iPod in the list of available devices.

How do I add music from your iPod to a new computer?


<p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br />

Check the top lock switch.

/Users/username/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
In Windows Vista, the folder is
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
In Windows XP and Windows 2000, the folder is
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

Note: If you don't see the files in Windows, turn on the Show hidden files option.
Windows Vista: Open Computer and choose Folder and Search Options from the Organize menu.
Windows XP and 2000: Open My Computer and click Folder Options from the Tools menu.
Click the View tab.

You need to attach it to your computer to unlock it. Your local computer store might sell Ipod USB cables.

Connect the iPod and go to 'my computer';
-open the iPod by right clicking on the iPod icon;
-on the toolbar menu click on 'Tools'
-select folder options>view>& check the box that says "show hidden files & folders"
-then click 'ok'

You will see a ghost folder called 'iPod control'. Open this folder to access the other folders & files contained within it.
Delete the file called "Itunes_lock"

Itunes transfer of music


hi there,
you can use software to do this task which takes less time to get done :-
http://www.transfer-ipod-to-itunes.com/showproduct.aspx?t=a

or

Follow the steps outlined :-

1. You need to connect the iPod without iTunes doing the auto-sync.
  • Hold down the Shift and Ctrl keys while connecting the iPod to your computer.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • If iTunes doesn't open automatically open after connecting the iPod, open iTunes.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • Wait until the iPod comes up in the Source list under DEVICES (it may take a while, but don't let go of Shift+Ctrl)
iTunes may pop up asking you to choose an existing library or to create a new one. Click Create a new one so that it can just open.
Once it shows up, close iTunes.

2. Now find the songs on your iPod and copy them to a folder on your computer.

  • From the Desktop, go to My Computer and click once (or select/highlight) on the iPod, (usually drive E:, F: or G:)
  • Go to Tools > Folder Options.
  • Click View tab > scroll to Show Hidden Files and Folders and select it. Click OK.
  • Look in the iPod drive, and find a folder called iPod_Control and open it.
  • You'll see the Music folder. In it will be folders and files named F00, F01 and so on.
To see the original name of the song/file, just mouse over it.
  • If you need all the contents of the iPod on you computer, copy the whole Music folder.
  • If you only need some of the files, look through the Fxx folders until you find the files you want and copy.
  • To copy:
    • Click once on the folder or hold down the Ctrl button and click once on each of the folders you want.
    • Go to the Edit menu and select copy.
    • Minimize all windows, right click over a blank area of the desktop, select New > Folder (name it Songs).
    • Right click over the Songs folder and select Paste.
      • Depending on the number of songs, this may take a long time to complete.
All the hidden files that are on your iPod are playable on iTunes once you transfer them to your computer's iTunes.

3. Now have iTunes import that folder to your music library
  • Open iTunes (if needed) and go to File > Add Folder to Library.
  • Select the folder you want to import and click OK.

Ipod to pc music play


You can only transfer music from an ipod to a computer if they were purchased through itunes.

If that's the case, right click on your ipod's name under devices. Then click Transfer music.
