This method can only be used to transfer ALL songs from the iPod to the computer. This following method works for Windows XP. It works for Windows 7 too . It seems like a lot of steps but it will only take you a couple of minutes and you won't need third party software (and is especially convenient if you ever use a computer that is not online.)
>Connect iPod to computer.
>Double Click iPod icon.
>Select “Show Hidden Files & Folders” and click “OK.”
>Right click “iPod Control” folder.
>Unselect “Hidden” and click “OK.”
>A window will pop up. Select “Apply changes to this folder, subfolder and files” and click “OK.”
>Double click “iPod Control" folder.
>Double click “Music" folder.
>You will notice folders labeled “F00, F01, F02, F03, F04, etc.”
>Open up iTunes side by side with this window. Make sure that the “Music Library” is displayed.
>In iTunes select “Edit>Preferences>Advanced>and make sure that ‘Keep iTunes Music Folder Organized’ and ‘Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to Library’ are checked and click ‘OK.’” You should also make sure that your iPod/iTunes is set to “Manually Manage Songs” so that you have control over what you want to add or delete (to do this select the iPod icon under “Devices” on the left column of the screen and select “Manually Manage Music” under “Options.”).
>Drag all of the yellow folders (not the Read Me files) directly into iTunes “Music Library.” I’m talking about the part that has song name, artist, track number, etc.
>You will notice a progress bar indicating that the music is being transferred. Sometimes a message will pop up saying that a song is not compatible with iTunes and that it needs to convert it. Just click “OK” when this message appears.
>Note: If you have slower computer you may want to only drag a few folders at a time so that your computer doesn’t freeze up.
