So my last computer crashed and nothing can be recovered.

When I tried to sync my ipod to my new laptop it tells me that I have to remove my ipod from my old computer but that is impossible.

How do I bypass this requirement?

Thanks

    Your iPod is designed to sync with only one iTunes library at a time.  It will recognize the iTunes library on the PC as a new library.  If you sync the iPod with this new library, all content will be erased from the iPod and replaced with what is in the new library.  So what you will want to do is copy everything from the iPod to your new iTunes library on your PC first.

     

    See this older post from another forum member Zevoneer covering the different methods and software available to assist you with the task of copying content from your iPod back to your PC and into iTunes.
