Failed Hard drive need to Recover Music from Ipod

  1. #11


    Sounds like you pretty well have this handled, but just in case;

    Linux. It doesn't care about apple's proprietary married to one pc nonsense. It just copies stuff. Find a friend with Linux and get him to copy the music to a thumbdrive.

    Got my son's music that way a few years ago when he came home from Germany with an ipod, not realizing it was married to his friend's desktop.

    He gave the ipod away as soon as I got his music for him so he wouldn't be bound again.

    One thing to do if you buy a bunch of content from Apple, you can use "Sound Taxi" to convert them to MP3's as long as you have the DRM's for them. It requires iTunes to be installed and your ID logged in. It's kind or a spammy program, but the pro version is clean.

    iTunes used to have the ability to convert AAC's to MP3's right on the spot, I don't think it does that anymore.
