I recently got a new computer and am trying to copy the files on my Ipod Classic to the new computer. I can't seem to find the itunes file on my ipod to copy to the my music folder like the help section said to do. Any ideas?

iTunes will only give you the option to copy your iTunes Store purchases directly from an iPod to the computer, you'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computerFor everything else (music from CDs, other downloads etc) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here: iTunes & iPod softwareWired News - Rescue Your Stranded TunesComparison of iPod managersA selection of iPod to iTunes utilities:TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)iPod2PC Windows OnlyiDump Windows OnlyYamiPod Mac and Windows iPod Music Liberator Mac & WindowsFloola Mac & WindowsiPodRip Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible) Music Rescue Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)iGadget Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)iPod Access Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)TouchCopy Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available on page 2 at this link: Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide
