  1. I second the vote for Senuti also. It has saved me a couple of times in the past when I wanted to put some songs from my iPod onto another computer I use (say, at work for example).

    Apple has gone some way to help recently, with the ability to “transfer purchased songs” in iTunes 7; but Senuti and presumably this iPod Access too can get any songs and allow the user to choose which songs are moved.

    That said, I hope people do not abuse the ability to move stuff in this direction causing Apple to clamp down on the activity.

  2. I use iPodDisk (at least I think that’s what it’s called, it’s been awhile since I’ve used it). It just mounts your iPod as a Network Disk, with all your playlists as directories on that disk. It’s simple to use and free. Why would I pay money to do the same thing?

  3. When my hard drive failed I just plugged my iPod into the computer and mounted it as a disk, viewed hidden files and copied all my music from the iPod to my new hard drive. It took a few hours but worked just dandy… and no extra software needed. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
