All you need to do is plugged in the usb calble to your computer then access it thru by clicking MY COMPUTER (for Win XP) or COMPUTER (Win Vista & 7). You will be having a new drive there usually Drive F or Drive E. Click on that new drive and copy all the contents there to your computer.

How to add Songs on iPhone without a PC & iTunes


One of the few things that disappoint me about the iPad is that Apple's flagship tablet is still, to some extent, dependent on a nearby computer and an open window of iTunes or WinSCP. Bridge is a Cydia app which makes importing files to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without a computer an easier affair. While there are many apps and tweaks that can get content on your phone, Bridge has a special feature which makes it worth the $1.99 asking price.

We've already covered a number of methods to download programs to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without using iTunes. Some of the free methods include OpenSSH (for secure wireless file transfers from a computer), iTransmission 2 (for torrents), and Safari Download Enabler (for downloading links and video files from the web). The problem is that while these apps and tweaks are more than capable of loading music on to your phone, they don't add the files to the Music app. This means you can't make playlists with the songs you've just loaded onto your phone.
That's where Bridge comes in. With Bridge, you can locate the files you've downloaded to your device and properly import them into your library. You can use this to load Songs, Ringtones, and Podcasts for audio files, set album artwork from your photo roll, and also import movies.

Applying album art to an imported song in Bridge
The only downside is the music won't be transferred back to your computer by syncing through iTunes. That's not a limitation of the app, but a limitation in iTunes. It wasn't built to transfer user-loaded music to your computer from an iPod. If you ever need to import music to your computer, you can use SSH to copy the music over. The files should be stored in 'var/mobile/media/music'.
Bridge can be found in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

How to import pictures onto my iPod Touch


<p>Music Player Apple iPod Touch can store personal photos along with music files and video. ITunes, the same program as the applications of music and movies on the iPod's controls, you can also synchronize photos stored on a computer to the internal memory of the iPod Touch. The setup process requires only a single session, then iTunes will automatically update the photos on the device when synced folder content change. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Note the location of the photos you want to import into your computer's hard drive. You can consolidate the images easier to synchronize, or create a new folder specifically for the iPod photo. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer via the USB cable supplied with the unit, and wait for iTunes to open. If the system is running a Windows operating system without iTunes installed, you can download from the Apple website. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the iPod Touch icon in the device list. Select the "Photos" tab. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click the "Sync Photos" check box and drop-down menu. Click "Select Folder" and navigate to the parent folder that holds the images and click OK. You do not select a specific subdirectory. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click the radio button "All Folders" to import all the photos on the parent folder, or click the "Selected folders" to select individual folders to import. The second option is chosen, place a check mark next to items in the "Folders" section. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Click "Apply" and wait for iTunes to the new data to synchronize with the iPod Touch. When finished, press the "eject" and unplug the device. The next time the iPod is connected to the computer updates the video library on iTunes from changes in synchronized folders. <br />

Downloading music to Ipod from a computer that has a link to another ipod without erasing it. can i use 2 ipods on the same computer.


Easily, you will have to go into the itunes settings and configure it to manually transfer/sync songs and playlists. After that you can move files from your computer directly onto your ipod via drag and drop or you can create a playlist and place the playlist on your ipod in itunes via drag and drop.

Hello, I have a desktop PC an a laptop at home, I have itunes on my desktop and just installed it on my laptop yesterday. I want to get all my music onto my laptop itunes. Is there a way to import my music...


If you have an iPod, then use iTunes on your desktop to load up your iPod with your iTunes music.

Then, use a program like TouchCopy to copy your iPod content onto your laptop or straight to iTunes. TouchCopy lets you copy all your music, video, photos, contacts, notes, calendars, games and more from your iPod.

To copy your iPod music using TouchCopy, you will need to...
1. Download and install TouchCopy on your laptop. TouchCopy works with all iPod types and the iPhone. There are free PC and Mac downloads available from here
http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy

2. Ensure that iTunes is closed before connecting your iPod. Then start TouchCopy and connect your iPod. TouchCopy will have fixed your iTunes preferences so that iTunes will not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running. These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.

3. Use TouchCopy to copy all your iPod content to your laptop hard drive or straight into iTunes.

4. You can then use iTunes to re-sync your iPod, which will re-load your iPod with all your music and let you add new content to it too.

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.

I pod touch while sincing new data, old is getting erased


Hi, I think you are using Itunes to Sync your IPOD-T.

If u r using Itunes Then u shouldn't delete any thing from ur ITUNES... Because, Sync is a option which will check the contents of your ipod and Itunes... If u erase anything from your itunes, then it will erase the same in ur IPod as well.... So U shouldn't delete anything from ur itunes....

Other option would be Manual Sync option... Where u have to drag and drop the contents from ur Itunes. Everytime....

Let me know, whether u want to manually add contents to ur ipod. so tat i can send u the settings?

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod


You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic. It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents. I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem. Best of Luck.

What kind of error message are you getting? Have you tried restoring the factory settings from iTunes? (that will erase the contents of the iPod though)
