How do you transfer ownership of an iTunes device and content? My daughter gave back my iPod Touch (older version) with some audio she had transferred from her CD's to it. I'm not interested in her purchased software from Apple but do not want to lose the audio.

iPod touch (2nd generation), iOS 4.3.3

    Apart from purchases, iTunes will only transfer music in the one direction, computer to device. This is largely an obstacle designed to stop iTunes/iPod being used to illicitly share files. I believe sharing music within a household is generally acceptable. Either your daughter could share the files directly from her computer, or give them to you on a memory stick, or you could use a third party tool to extract them from the device such as one of those listed in Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.
