my imac 2.4 core2duo died.  i immediately bought a new 21.5" 2.8 i7 iMac.  The only thing I regretted was that I lost my music catalog - imported from PC to the first iMac and added to, this included the napster hey day stuf too. 

 

I just realized that all that old stuff is also on an old iPod that i have (how I transferred the music to the iMac 2.4 in the first place.

 

How do I get this music into the new 21.5" iMac?  The iTunes on the new computer allows me to play it from the iPod, but not move it into the iMac.

 

Thanks,

 

John


iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2.8 intel i7

    Hi..

     

    On the new iMac launch iTunes.

     

    From the iTunes menu bar click Store > Authorize This Computer

     

    For your iTunes purchases ...

     

    Connect the iPod.

     

    From the menu bar again, click File > Transfer Purchases From ..

     

    For non iTunes purchases you may need a utility.

     

    See Zevoneer's post here >  Moving files from Ipod to Itunes: Apple Support Communities

    How to transfer music from an iPod to a Mac computer

    Step 1: Connect your iPod and launch iTunes. In the iPod management screen, scroll down to Options and check "Enable disk use". iTunes will give you a warning — select OK.

    Step 2: Open My Computer and open your iPod drive.

    Step 3: Open Tools > Folder Options. Click the View tab and check "Show hidden files and folders".

    Step 4: In your iPod folder, open iPod_Controls > Music. Highlight all of the folders and drag them into the desired folder on your hard drive. This might take a while, depending on how much music you're transferring.

    Step 5: Highlight all of the folders again, right-click and select Properties. Uncheck "Hidden". Close this window.

    Hope my answer will give you help.

    If you purchased music off from your ipod itunes music store, you can simply transfer purchases. Connect your ipod to your new MBP, right click on your device and transfer purchases.

     

    Another option: There are third party program that does allow you to transfer your music from your ipod to your computer.

     

    Try "iPod to Mac". It's not free, but it works very well. Copies everything - music, playlists, movies, tones, etc. to your Mac and sets it all up automatically in iTunes.
