If something happens to your computer or your hardrive and your iTunes library is wiped out, did you know that Apple doesn’t allow you to transfer the music and other files on your iPod to a new iTunes install?
This means all those valuable songs and videos that you’ve bought and paid for in iTunes and uploaded to your iPod cannot be downloaded from your iPod back to iTunes. Apple does this to prevent unauthorized sharing of “protected” content.
Unfortunately lots of people with legitimate reasons to transfer files from iPod to iTunes can’t do it with the factory iTunes settings. This is where you have to turn to third party software developers.
Here are a few of the programs we recommend you take a look at to solve this problem:
