My itunes library is empty on my new computer, but I have a full library on my ipod. How do I "reverse" sync? I don't see an option in itunes to put all the info from my ipod onto my computer. I see it the other way, which would then erase all the data on my ipod.
I have an old macbook that has all my songs on, as well as my iPod. I have recently got an iMa which currently has no music on, how would I transfer the music from the iPod to the new iMac, or alternatively from the old Macbook to the iMac?
My friend (iPod nano, 4G), is trying to restore songs to her computer (running vista) from her computer. She's been trying to use software for this, but it hasn't been working. Does anyone have a recommendation for free software that will work?

How can I import the music from my ipod nano to macbook air?I have no music yet on iTunes on the mac. There is only the option to sync itunes with my ipod and then all songs on my ipod would be deleted - is the other way around also possible??
I'm trying to transfer some songs from my friend's band onto my friend's iPod. However iTunes just opens up a window saying that I can either "Erase and Sync" or "Transfer Purchases From Another iPod". Is there a way to just open iTunes up and transfer my music to the other iPod?
Couple days ago I deleted a playlist on my Itunes accidentally. Luckily I have all my music backed up on an External HD. I remade the playlist on Itunes, transferred the music from my Ext. HD to the playlist, connected my ipod to have it synced, then disoconnected my HD and Ipod after sync and when I search the playlist on my Ipod I only get 29 of the 142 songs synced. Can someone please tell me what could be going wrong?
How do I transfer my iPod Touch songs to my MacbookPro through iTunes? I stopped it from syncing, but I have no songs on my MacbookPro and a bunch on my iPod. I got my iPod songs from iTunes on a PC. I want to plug my iPod Touch into my new MacbookPro and transfer the songs from my iPod to my Mac.
i just got my first Mac. All of the files from my PC were deleted, so I'm wondering if there's a way to load all of the songs, pictures, etc on my iPhone to my Mac? I'm worried that if I connect my phone, it may sync and erase everything I have saved.
As the only user of my MacBook Pro, I am at a loss as to why I am unable to import songs from my CDs using iTunes! I can tell you that I tried to find every folder associated with iTunes, and I have read/write permissions for all of them. Is there a particular folder i need to look for? Perhasp I have a folder that is missing?
My iTunes (the latest version on a MacBook Pro) is not allowing me to copy music from the library to an iPod. Most of the music is imported in, not purchased from iTunes. When I drag to load on to the iPod, it says "File Not Found" - I am guessing it is because it is a mp3 not a mp4? I am not sure how it cannot be found, when I can play the song in iTunes on my computer? Do I need to convert these song files to mp4? If so, what program can I use? I used to use AudioHub before it went away - I have since purchased a new machine and cannot access it any more.
My laptop has died and so I am off to purchase a MacBook Pro at the weekend. My concern is my iTunes account and credit which is on my laptop. My iTunes library is a combination of purchased songs and songs copied from my own CDs.
Will I be able to sync my iPod to the MacBook Pro thereby retrieving my credit and songs?
I have all my music on an external HD that I've used for a few years. I told my old computer (1GHz TiBook G4 with Tiger) to export my iTunes library, which it did, as a .xml file. Then, I opened that file on my new iMac, and only about 1/5 of the songs were found, apparently. This doesn't make sense to me, as the iMac is connected to the HD when I import the old library. If it makes a difference, the TiBook was NOT connected to the HD when I exported the library. I have the two computers networked together via Ethernet right now, though.
Can anyone tell me if its possible to transfer music from my ipod to new itunes library on new computer. My old laptop died and I hadnt backed up my itunes library. I still have all music I want on my ipod and have recovered my purchased content but cant sync ipod or will lose all the content. A lot of my old library had been transferred from cds and I dont want to go through all that process again.
I have an new imac.Everyhting is working in itunes.all songs play no problem through the computer (including purchased songs)Computer has been authorized.Old imac has been unauthorized already.Latest itunes update done.Everything was working fine until I plugged in my ipod for the first time on the new imac.A pop up came up that reads that the computer is not authorized to put the downloaded songs onto the ipod. I click authorize and enter in my user name and password. Another pop up comes up and reads "this computer is already authorized".I click OK.Immediately a pop up comes up that reads that the computer is not authorized this happens over and over.if I click "don't authorize" the program starts syncing my ipod without my downloads.so I just unplugged the ipod.The computer will play the downloaded songs no problem the problem comes when I plug in the ipod.
I just bought a new MacBook Pro and used Migration Assistant to move my old MacBook files to the new machine. Ever since the file migration, my brand new iPod Touch is having a lot of problems connecting to iTunes. Here's the deal: When connected by USB to the new MBP, the iPod charges fine, but is not recognized by iTunes (does not show up at all). After mucking around a bit (unplugging/plugging in, deleting iTunes plists, and repairing disk permissions) I decided to reinstall iTunes. I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes and after reinstalling iTunes the iPod was detected and all was working great again...until I shut down and restarted my computer and the iPod was no longer recognized.
I proceeded to uninstall/reinstall iTunes again. It worked!...until I restarted my computer and iTunes would not recognize the iPod again. Interestingly, each time that I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes, I could not find iTunesHelper running in either Activity Monitor or present in the start-up items of System Preferences as the Apple KB suggested it should be. I should also mention that the new iPod Touch has no problems being detected by iTunes on my old MacBook (the source hard drive for the file migration). This is baffling to say the least. I'm getting ready to forget Migration Assistant, nuke my new MBP's user account and start from scratch.
