iPod to PC transfer

My PC hard drive died (it has since been replaced) and took all my music with it. I'm looking to now transfer the music on my iPod back to my new drive, and into iTunes.

Any recommendations for software to accomplish this legal transfer of music I already own that is on my iPod onto my clean new hard drive?

I used to use ephPod for that task. Not sure if it's around any more.

I used sharepod. I had some problem with it last year, but am not sure if they fixed it.

Re: iPod to PC transfer

Is there any program out there that lets you access the Ipod filesystem (ext3, I believe?) *without* having Itunes installed on your PC? That is, a standalone program, which does NOT rely on Apple .dlls? This, of course, for a jailbroken device. I gave up on those available programs (really, shells) when the bloat of Itunes became unbearable!

Re: iPod to PC transfer

I've had to do this a couple of times when my laptop/netbook died and didn't use any additional software. If you connect your iPod to the new computer and don't have iTunes open it will just be recognized as an external hard drive. The music files are hidden when you access the iPod on the file management folder, but if you change the setting to show all files you can see and copy over all of the files.

The file names might not be recognizable, but once they are on your new computer iTunes will recognize them.

I'm pretty sure if you put your cursor over the Apple file name it will show the real name of the file but I would need to try it to make sure as I haven't done it in a while.

Another vote for sharepod. Lots of options including not having to use iTunes and file naming features.

Thanks for the headsup on SharePod. Worked like a champ!
