    Have you tried plugging both of them in to your USB ports and dragging and dropping in iTunes?

    You can't copy music directly from one iPod to another. If the songs on your iPod aren't currently in iTunes then you need to copy them there first so you can update them to the shuffle. If you have any iTMS purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers has been introduced with iTunes 7 A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod

    The transfer of non iTMS content such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. I use Senuti but have a look at the web pages and documentation for the others too, you'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality. You can also read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes

    I'm having this same issue, I want to drag my gym mix to my shuffle from my ipod, but my ipod is also not letting me drag files onto my itunes library. I'm almost certain I was able to do this before when I first bought my mac I had to move files over there from my ipod and my external drive onto my new itunes library, but now it will not allow me. I'm guessing the issue is with my ipod (which I have not reformated from PC when I bought my mac, because my music is on two different harddrives right now) not the shuffle.
