I had to restore my computer to its original factory settings, which deleted ITUNES from the computer.  I downloaded the current version of ITUNES.  How do I transfer songs from a 160gb IPOD to ITUNES on a computer?  The OS is Windows 7. 

iPod classic, Windows 7

    You cannot transfer song files from iPod to computer using iTunes (except for songs purchased from the iTunes Store).  However, there are third-party methods and utilities that can transfer from iPod to computer.  If you do a Google search on something like "ipod transfer," you should get some links.


    Once the song files are on your computer, you can add them to the iTunes library.


    NOTE:  Songs previously purchased from the iTunes Store can be re-downloaded at no cost, from the iTunes Store Purchased screen.  The link to Purchased is on the iTunes Store Home screen, under QUICK LINKS.
