Is there any way to take music off my iPod and put it on my computer?
I'm a noob at ipod stuff, but from what I can tell, yes, you can, but you have to specify to use the ipod as a "disk".
Sorry, I'm not much help, but maybe it's a start
Drag and drop sounded sooo much easier. Thanks.
So did you figure it out? If not just post back up and I'll show ya how to do it.
zen quit pirating music before I report you to the RIAA.......
Do tell. I thought that it couldn't be done. FWIU the ipod transfer is only 1 way. So if your computer was wiped out with a virus or something and you tried to DL from the ipod back to the computer, it would just blank the ipod(unless in harddrive mode)
Nope, help a brotha out.
Chris, keep it up and I'll stab you in the eye with a spoon.
The MP3 player I got is an RCA Lyra. When you plug it in to the computer all the computer sees' is another hard drive, so I just drag and drop both directions, nice and easy!
how much storage you have on it?
i have 42 gigs of music....
Tell us what you know....
I connected my iPod to my brother-in-laws iTunes over Christmas break to pull some of my songs to his empty library (he had just gotten a Nano from Santa). I could see my iPod in the left menu bar and I could see all the playlists and songs, but I could not drag and drop them anywhere.
I have some AAC protected songs on it, but most are uncompressed "Apple Lossless" versions of CDs I've ripped....so it's not a "copy protection" thing. I believe Apple is just smart enough to know that everyone would be copying entire libararies with each other with relative ease if an iPod could simply "dump" it's music into any iTunes library it connected to...
WOW! I don't like even 10 gigs of music. the Lyra can hold 256k, plus it takes a SD memory card like you use in your digi cam. so you can make it hold 256 + whatever size card you put into it, I have a one gig card in mine I can take it to work and never hear the same song twice in10 hours!
Plus it's just another hard drive as far as the computer knows so you can load any type of file to it and transport it. I requested this particular model due to its versitility, I have many friends that have told me how tempermental Ipods are. just my two cents
Itunes and ipod software is designed specifically NOT to allow you to do this, but if you search for a program (search "download ipod music" or something) there are many programs on teh net to do just what you want.
I'm on a mac, and have used a couple that work great ...and there are way more programs like this for the pc.
