there is a way...I don't remember but someone here knows it...keep this bumped and you'll find him :cool:
Are you using a PC? If so, it's pretty easy, albeit a little tedious.
Plug in the ipod, close itunes for now.
Go to My Computer, navigate to the ipod drive. If you don't have hidden files and folders displaying, you need to do that. (Tools>Folder Options>View Tab>Select 'show hidden files and folders')
There's a folder called ipod control, under that is a music folder. Unhide that folder. (Right click>properties>uncheck hidden>apply to all folders).
Take that music folder, copy it to your local PC.
1. Open itunes. Add folder to library, choose the folder you copied the ipod music to and add it your library. Plug in the ipod touch. Choose manually manage music. And move the music from the library to the ipod.
2. Open itunes, plug in the ipod touch. Using windows explorer, go to the folder you copied the first ipod music to. Select it and drag into itunes to the ipod touch music folder and release and it will begin to copy the music directly to the ipod touch.
Thanks for the info Fish, and Jet things, however my question is I have a iBook that I bought off a friend and have his iTunes library, any way to get my music off my iPod and onto the iBook? or his music onto my iPod? thanks for anyones help on this.
