    The music sync is one way - computer to ipod. The exception is itunes purchases: File>Transfer Purchases

    EVERYTHING on your ipod should also be on your computer. Is it not?

    Since this will not work for any iPod and especially not an iPod Touch, how have you been able to manually drag songs from the iPod to the computer?

    Because an iPod by design does not allow you, even when manually managing your music, to copy music from the iPod to the computer without the use of 3rd party software?

    $100 to get it realigned?

    If you've genuinely bought the songs from iTunes Store to your iPod, you should be able to transfer purchases without any problems, as long as you authorize your new computer with the same iTunes account that you bought your songs with.
    Know more about [How to transfer or sync iPod music to computer|http://www.softwarebbs.com/wiki/Howto_transfer_or_copy_music_from_iPod_toPC], which included the detailed tutorials of how to transfer your music from iPod to PC.
    Hope it can do you a favor.

    yer $100 for laser re-aligned. thats why, also to many platters so it makes it harder.
    to copy your music do what i said but if it don't work on your comp for whatever reason just find your itunes media file : library backup or the sogns location and copy from there.

    hope i helped.

    Are you really serious with these posts or are you just having some fun?

    Or were you naive enough to pay someone to have your "laser re-aligned"? There is no laser in a hard drive.

    Whoever is reading posts from this guy, don't listen to anything he says.

    Since it is your old iPod Touch and you got a new one go online and got to ipodtouchmania.com and look how to jailbreak it and get OpenSSH on the ipod and WinSCP on your computer and then you can look at the files and copy them.

    by laser re-aligned i mean the hdd platerrs are moved into a position where a laser is needed to pin point the exact location for it to read and write.
    and no i havent found a person to re-align yet.
    i AM serious.
    any-way if you want to continue talking about this i'll make a new topic OR we can stick to the topic of transfering music.

    I think you meant to reply to me, and the copying music part of this thread has been covered. Since I just bought 2, 2TB hard drives for $69 why would I pay $100 to "realign". And you would have to disassemble the hard drive to do this which would require a clean room. I would guess the cost to be closer to $5,000 than $100. But it isn't necessary to do this anyway, and back to this topic, you cannot use disk mode to copy music from an iPod/iPod Touch to a computer, other than resorting to some rather extreme circumstances that would really only work for a limited number of songs.
