o add photos from iPod classic to a computer:
- 1 Connect iPod classic to the computer.
- 2 Drag image files from the Photos folder or DCIM folder on iPod classic to the desktop or
to a photo editing application on the computer.
Note: You can also use a photo editing application, such as iPhoto, to add photos stored in the Photos folder. See the documentation that came with the application for more information.
Thanks for the iPod Classic manual pdf...
I have attempted to connect to an iMac and the classic just wants to sync! I cannot transfer any of the photos on the iPod. It really doesn't allow me to much of anything to anything on the iPod classic.
The manual states how to use the iPod classic as an External Disc. Ill give that a try and see if I can transfer the photos onto the iMac...via image transfer or iPhoto...
I've been told that only those photos that have been taken by an iPod (iPod classic doesn't take photos!!) can be transferred to a computer. So all 4000+ photos on this iPod Classic were synced by his computer and can't be imported to another computer!!!...???
Appreciate your reply/time and effort Michael...
I've given the iPod Classic back to the coworker and informed her what I've learned. I advised her to try an Apple Genius at the Apple Store and see if they can help her...
Some of the tools listed can extract photos from the device, but these are likely to be fairly low resolution unless an option to include the originals was selected.
As a newcomer may I ask a related question. My son is having similar problems trying to recover photos he took on an iphone then transferred to a classic ipod before wiping his computer because of problems. He can see the photos on the ipod - the pc sees the ipod as an external drive and it contains ithmb files. Windows won't open these files so he can't see them on the pc and can't save them.
I have tried to open the ipod files on my pc and can't do it either
Neither he nor I or computer literate so if Michael or turingtest2 could advise in very simple steps I would be very grateful
