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.

yes, try ripping the cd or dvd by placing in tray........open itunes and rip the track (s) you want...(itunes will convert the mp3 to mp4)....once all your track you want are done.......take the music file from the top of left hand side (make sure ipod is connected for this) and click hold and drag down to the ipod music folder (this will take a while depending on large the folder is) once you are finish never ever just unplug it you will lose your files EJECT from itunes............
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!
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.
