Ipod -> Itunes question

In the process of upgrading one pc to Windows 7, I had to uninstall & reinstall itunes. I have one ipod with tunes that need to be go from the ipod back to an itunes library as I can't seem to find the file anywhere (and I no longer have the cd's they came from). I don't want it sync it & lose those files.

I thought this was discussed in an earlier thread but I can't locate it in a search. Is there a simple way of going from an ipod back? Thanks

Thanks!

Okay, now all the music is on the hard drive (music folder) but I can't seem to get itunes to pick it up unless I go one song at a time. Suggestions?

Consolidate Library.

I'm not at my computer, so I don't know what menu it's under. It will search the computer for all music and videos, and put them into itunes. If you have itunes set to organize the library, it will place the files into itunes' tree structure. Artist - Album - file.mp3

The latest: I backed up one ipod onto my laptop using getsharepod. Worked perfectly except now I have duplicates of all files in my library. Before I sync UI need to get the dups off.

Next I tried the same consolidation wanting to put my wifes music files onto the itunes program from the music folder on the pc+ and they won't budge.

Strange!
