How to transfer manually added music from ipod to pc

by kettienne / April 4, 2012 4:06 AM PDT

I have a 30gb 5th generation ipod classic to which I have manually added quite a bit of music instead of syncing to itunes. Is there any way I can export or transfer the music currently on my ipod including the manually added music without losing any of it? Can I then import/add that collection into itunes? Simple steps would be appreciated if possible so I don't muck it up.

But since it was never simple to manually add songs to an iPod except with iTunes, your story would be interesting to others.

Try iRip.

I had the same problem until I found 'SharePod'. It will transfer your iPod/iPhone/iPad music to your computer/iTunes.

SharePod is free download.
