How do I retrieve all my iPod items I have purchased from iTunes and downloaded from cd and dvd back to my my computer?  When I into my iTunes account to see what I have purchased, it's all there but not in my iTunes library or my iTunes library on my computer.  I did not delete my library at all.  Basically, how can I transfer the items I have on my iPod on to my iTunes Library on my computer?  Someone please help me!!!

iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009), Windows 8

    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 in your computer, you can add them to your iTunes library.


    NOTE:  For previous purchases from the iTunes Store, you can also re-download them at no cost from the iTunes Store Purchased screen.  The link to Purchased is on the iTunes Store Home screen, under QUICK LINKS.
