    there are any number of freeware and shareware programs like podworks that will let you transfer your music from your ipod to your mac. go to www.versiontracker.com and do a search for "ipod". also, post your question at podcentral for possibly more detailed answers.

    Highly recommended: iPod.iTunes.

    "Unlike other iPod copy tools, iPod.iTunes checks which iPod tracks or playlists are not in the iTunes music library and only adds those seamlessly into the iTunes library. iPod.iTunes can also transfer song rating, date played and play count."

    Thanks Kelvin for the suggestion (even if I wasn't the one who asked). iPod.iTunes seems perfect for updating both iPod and harddisk.

    why do you still need a 3rd party app to transfer songs from iPod to iTunes if the included firewire/usb cable can do the trick? (maybe a stupid question.. pls clarify)

    iTunes allows you to copy songs to an iPod. It won't allow you to do the reverse, hence the need for the 3rd party apps. :yes:

    You see, there is a reason why Apple allows you to load music into the iPod and not the reverse. It's to deter PIRACY. Copying music from someone else's iPod is PIRACY.

    However, an application like iPod.iTunes can serve legit functions. In my case, my iPod was in manual setting (and not Automatically sync), I deleted the music from my iTunes since I wanted to conserve space in my laptop's HDD. Now, I want to restore the music from my iPod back into iTunes, but obviously iTunes wouldn't let me do that. Enter iPod.iTunes, even playlists and Play Count were restored in my iTunes.

    Have no fear, it'll add songs to your iTunes library. Just be aware when connecting your bro's ipod to your 'Book. You might accidentally overwrite his songs. :eek:
    But iPod.iTunes, as Kelvin mentioned, won't copy songs that are already exsitng on your iTunes.

    just bought an iBook, now i want to use it to update/add songs to my iPod (which i used with WIN XP)
    Do i have to reformat my iPod? or can i use it with my iBook (manual updating) and still retain my 600++ songs.

    I don't want to reinstall/re rip the said songs to my new iBook, but sure would want to use it from now on (FOR MY IPOD)

    please enlighten me

    From what I can remember, iPods formatted for Windows (FAT) will be recognized as any other iPod by a Mac while an iPod formatted for OS X (HFS) will not be recognized by a Windows running machine. So p3smag, I don't think you'll have any problems :) just connect your iPod to your iBook and it should work :)

    got this reply from POD Central:
    Hope this helps: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/tutorial/ip_gettingstarted_t12.html

    The iPod is designed to mirror whatever you have in the iTunes playlist. So if your new iBook doesn't have music and you sync the iPod to it, the iPod won't have music as well.

    what do u guys think?

    it's true. after more than a year syncing my iPod to my Thinkpad (Windows 2000), never encountered any glitch when i transferred and sync my library to my PB.
