Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this. You can go from a computer to Ipod but not back the other way. Well at least not in a way that is supported by Itunes and the Apple folk.

There are lots of third party applications that will help you with that though. Check out some of them on the following discussion link on About.com.
http://macs.about.com/od/ipod/a/copy_from_ipod.htm

I haven't used any of these third party applications so I don't know which to recommend. When I had to do it about a year ago, no third party applications existed and I did it the long, slow, painful, manual way...which I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

If none of the third party apps work, let me know...and I'll walk you through the manual process.

Good luck!

    I'm here. How computer savvy are you?

  • Lisa Kalmbach Feb 12, 2008

    Since it would be tough to walk you through this in this forum...I found a very informative article that will walk you through it.
    http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/article...

    One important thing this guy points out is that the procedure differs based on whether the music is music that was purchased from Itunes or music ripped from your own CDs. This article shows you both scenarios and additionally goes through the old fashioned way and recommends some third party software as well.

How do i load music on the ipod


iTunes is always the first choice for most of iPod users when it comes to transferring music from computer. It can help you transfer and backup files easily.
  1. Connect your iPod to PC via matched USB cable.
  2. Click the phone icon on the left corner of the interface. To manage your media files manually, you'd better go to "Options" under "Summary"tab, cancel "Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected" and check "Manually manage music and videos". Don't forget to click "Apply" when it's done.
  3. Import music into iTunes library from computer by clicking "File" and then "Add File to Library". Once transferred successfully, you can select the music icon on top to see all the songs.
  4. Click "Music" under "Settings" tab. Choose "Sync Music". You can either sync entire music library or selected playlists as you like. Then click "Sync" button at the bottom.

Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano


Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

How do I transfer a playlist from I-Tunes to my I-pod?


Connect your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.
Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's an iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well.

How to sync my i pod classic in i tunes


Hello, friend. If you are running iTunes below version 11, I can help you. Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left hand side there should be your iPod name, go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.

How do i sync selected music from my itunes library on to my iphone? it wont let me select selected tunes only. i dont want the entire library transferred to my iphone


You add your selected music to a playlist and then sync just that playlist. You also need to enable either wi-fi only syncing or use the usb cable, manually managing music and videos.

How do I simply add the new music?


An iPod can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. once you got a new iTunes library or a new computer. You have to authorize your iPod to it at first, then you can upload music and video from the new iTunes to your iPod. But this way will overwrite the originial files on iPod with the new iTunes. You may try this iPod transfer, it can help you copy files from iPod to computer for backup, you can also use it as an iTunes alternative to upload music and video. It will not erase your original iPod files. It's safe and works pretty well for me. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-transfer-mediawidget.html

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

How do i transfer Music to my Iphone from my computer, Once plugged into the computer the songs that are currently in the iphone are unhighlighted and cannot move songs to or from the iphone.. Please help


You need to create a playlist for the iPhone. This isn't intuitive and I don't know why it's this way. It works great, there just isn't anything explaining what to do. This seems to snag Windows users the most. Maybe Mac users are already used to doing things this way? I don't know.

Below is a picture of my iTunes. Look down in the lower-left corner and see that my playlist is highlighted. At the very bottom-left corner you can click the plus sign to create a new playlist. Then drag all of the music you want to the playlist. Finally, in the music tab of your iPhone, make sure you click the playlist you just made to sync all music on that list to your phone.

This will do the trick.

Grays songs in ipod when connected to Computer


You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.

To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files."
You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.

Hope this helped!
