How can I move songs I DIDN'T buy from iTunes into my library off of my iPod?

Postby lintun » Mon Apr 04, 2011 6:04 am

I have 738 songs on my iPod. My iTunes library only contains 461 of them. It refuses to import 200+ songs from the rest of my iPod. No, I did not buy them from iTunes but they are on my iPod. I want to switch my iPod songs to a new iPod and I'd like to have all of my songs without having to re-download little under half of them. The help section in iTunes is awful and no help whatsoever. I'd like to be able to put all of my songs onto CDs and back it up, but I cannot do this without all my songs in my library. How can I do this?

You can use an ipod to computer transfer program to help.I personally use this iPod to Computer Transfer software.It helps me to transfer my songs/videos/photos/playlists/books etc from ipod to my iTunes directly and safely.It works well for me,you can give it a try.

I've done this several days ago. Really save time.
Go to iPod-tool.com and purchase the iPod to PC transfer software called Tansee iPod Transfer to help you backup all your iPod songs and videos.
The advantage lies in that it utilizes iPod's internal database to display your iPod's files instantly. That means, when you connect your iPod to PC, this program will automatically display all music/videos on your iPod. Once click "Copy" button, all files would be copied onto your selected folder on your PC.

Hi, I recommend an iPod to computer iTunes transfer software.

http://www.ipod-to-ipod-touch.com/copy-songs-videos-photos-playlists-from-ipod-to-computer-or-itunes.html

It can help you copy songs videos playlists from iPod to computer or iTunes in a couple of clicks. If you own more than one iPods, it can simultaneously manage all the iPods in the same interface, you may transfer files among these iPods by drag-and-drop.

Hope it helpful for you.

I'm sorry but I don't think it's possible to do that.

If your songs purchased from iTunes, In the Apple official company FAQ, Apple originally stated that:

Synchronization occurs only in one direction, from your computer to your iPod. This means you cannot transfer music, automatically or manually, from your iPod to a computer(only for purchased music), and you cannot use iPod to copy a music library from one computer to another.

With the release of later iTunes , Apple revised the company FAQ to note (emphasis added):
Synchronization generally occurs only in one direction, from your computer to your iPod. This means you typically cannot transfer music, automatically or manually, from your iPod to a computer, and you cannot use iPod to copy a music library from one computer to another.

An exception to this is the transfer purchases feature which allows you to restore purchased iTunes
content to your computer from your iPod. Additionally, if you legally are allowed to copy music or other media files, you can configure your iPod as a storage drive to move media files.
The higher version of iTunes allow one to use an iPod to transfer songs purchased through iTunes to as many as five authorized computers. This only works for songs purchased through iTunes, not those ripped from CDs or purchase from other sources, which are much more common.

This restriction was designed to discourage casual music piracy, but unfortunately, this also prevents one from easily copying legally acquired music from one's own iPod to their own computer.If you need to restore a music collection lost due to a system crash or want to transfer thousands of songs to a new computer using your iPod rather than again rip hundreds of CDs, fortunately, there are a number of easy to use freeware and shareware programs that make it simple.

For MacOS X, try AVGo iPhone iPod to Mac Transfer http://www.iphone-transfer-sms.com/avgo-ipod-iphone-to-mac-transfer.html(Support iPod touch).
For MacOS 9, try escapePod and iProber. For Windows, try Cucusoft iPad iPhone iPod to computer transfer http://www.allmediacopy.com/how-to-transfer-ipod-photo-movie-music-playlist-to-computer-and-itunes.html(and Support iPhone too,For Linux, try GUIPod as well as YamiPod (which supports MacOS X, Windows, and Linux).
Hope it helps yeah!!!

Good luck
