    Do you still have the music on a computer, if so you could transfer thet to your new Mac via an external drive?

     

    I've never tried to transfer music from an iPod but it would be risky, if the music is only stored on the iPod and not linked to a current iTunes account you could lose all the music.

    External drives are can be very useful so it would be a good investment, even if you just used it to back up the Mac. Have you checked out Time Machine? It's really easy to use and could be invaluable if anything went wrong with the Mac or if you made a mistake and deleted something you shouldn't. You can even go back to previous versions of the same file.

    You're getting mixed up with time capsule which is, as you say, expensive.

     

    Time machine is software preloaded on your Mac that works with any hard drive. You can get a 1TB drive for about £60 and, believe me, it'd be well worth the investment.
