Reinstalled Windows, lost all my music. Help!

by Myrkr_Ormr / October 28, 2013 9:13 AM PDT

I reinstalled windows recently and of all the things i forgot to save, my music folder has been destroyed lol.

So my question is, is there a way to get my music off my iPod Touch back onto my computer? without losing the music on the iPod Touch itself?

Try a program called iRip. Easy to find with google.

A friend of mine said that the Sync function should make a copy of all the music on my iPod Touch, back onto my computer, is that true?

Google iRip and I read you should NEVER do what your friend told you. Use the force (google.)
