If you have plugged the Windows formatted ipod into your mac and then formatted it using the mac, there will be no music left on the ipod. if you want to retain the windows format and the music currently on the ipod, you must say "no" to any offer to format the ipod that the mac itunes may prompt you with.
if you haven't formatted it, then you can use third party programs such as yamipod which allows you to copy music from ipod to your desktop which you can then import into itunes. search google for yamipod.

Transfer macbook pro music


There are a number of different ways to do this. If you have an external hard drive, all you need to do is drag the Macintosh HD/[your user name here]/Users/Music/iTunes folder onto the external drive, connect the external drive to your Macbook, and drag and drop the iTunes folder from the external drive onto the iTunes icon in the dock. <br /><br />If you have an iPod classic, you can do this: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329<br /><br />...or if you don't have a huge library and/or have a lot of CDs/DVDs you can use, you can back up your library to disc: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1382<br /><br />...or if you have anything other other sort of iPod, iPhone, or iPad, you can rip the music from it using this utility: <br /><br />http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/<br /><br />

How to make my own ipod music from cd?


you first have to rip the contents of the cd to your itunes (or whatever media player you use). then you can move them to your ipod from your music library.

the issue is that when songs are on an audio cd, they're in a particular format (some refer to the format as an "analog" format) that can only be read by cd players and cd drives. so when you add music to your computer, you usually have to change the format of the music to something like "mp3", which is a common digital format that most/all digital media devices (such as your ipod) can read.
