Re: sharing the music on one ipod classic on to another
I also had this problem. Bought a classic ipod and I wanted to transfer music and movies from my ipod 3rd gen. You would think that it could be done from the itunes - but no! You can't take stuff from the ipod and put it back onto your computer. So I eventually downloaded a software application called COPYGEAR. I found it on google and it was about the 8th application I downloaded and it worked. You only get a trial version for free but I only needed to use it the once. I hope this works for you.

basicly, i think if you can go onto google and randomly search soemthing it will come up. but all you really need is i-tunes (or windows media player, or anyother music site that wroks), a USB cord, and some music, CDs, or i-tunes music,. If you choose itunes, you most likely can figure it out by your self, just go to music store, (with a music card of any amount) and click on right side it will say 'redeem'. click this and when you plug it in, you can go to your music, and say apply or something at the bottom. if this doesn't help, sorry. i hope it does!
Let's say you have one computer and two iPods. It's easy enough to synchronize both iPods with just one computer, as long as both iPod users are happy accessing the same music library or the same set of playlists. But that can get hard to manage, especially if you're manually updating the iPod or adding new music that you'd like to keep separate.
In most cases, the easiest way to keep discrete libraries for syncing both iPods is to create a separate user account for each person who uses an iPod with the computer. The Insider Secrets video shows the steps for doing this using Mac OS X; here's how to create a separate user and share music under Windows XP.
First, click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts (Start > Settings > Control Panel if you use the Classic view). Click "Create a new account," and follow the instructions.
Windows XP kindly provides a shared folder that already includes a directory called Shared Music (find it under C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDocuments). The easiest thing to do is to copy all the music on your computer into this folder so that all users can access it. Then the lucky owner of the new iPod can pick and choose what music to include in his or her iTunes Library. From the new account, in iTunes, click File > Add Folder To Library, and copy over whatever music you want (make sure to check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes music folder" when adding to library, under Advanced in the Preferences dialog box, so that iTunes doesn't consolidate the files for the music library).
Now both users can share all or part of the same library, add new music whenever necessary, and automatically update their iPods without the hassle of manually sifting through a large shared library. -BY HART DAVIS
your ipod will not function properly with windows media player. it may play the music but it won;t get functionality from the ipod. You have to use iTunes to get your ipod straightened out. Once you mount it on iTunes you will see the music and be able to add music and delete music.
You may need to restore the iPod in iTunes. You could try to install Tune Tools on another Mac and see if it works there. It is possible that the software version you have does not support the Classic. There may be an updated version that you need to install to use it with the Classic. Check the authors site or the documentation for supported models.
Itunes doesnt let you get the content off of the ipod and put it on your computer because then nobody would download music but just share it. There are lots of programs out there for this, some free and some cost money. The ones you pay for are more legitimate but the free ones should work as well. www.download.com and websites like that should have something. I cant think of any names.
