IPOD music transfer.
I wanted to make this its own entry and apply tags. This is some oddly-kept secret about how to transfer your music from IPOD to any computer. Very useful to know, because it's FREE. you don't need to download or buy anything. (the steps will not be the same for everyone, because of different windows themes, and especially not the same for mac users, but the idea will be the similar. Make sure you show hidden files and figure it out from there). 1. insert ipod's USB to computer. 2. CLICK "my computer" 3. click your ipod's drive (e.g. mine is named PINKIE (G:) 4. Look at the top of your menu (will look something like this: "file. edit. view. favorites. tools. help") 4a. click TOOLS 4b. click FOLDER OPTIONS 4c. click VIEW 4d. CLICK SHOW HIDDEN FILES!!!!! IMPORTANT STEP. If you don't do this, you'll be confused. 5. click OK. then click the NEW folder that shows up called IPOD CONTROL 6. click IPOD MUSIC folder 7. copy ALL the weirdly-named folders and paste them onto your computer desktop or ANYWHERE you want them to go. VOILA. do not need to d/l or buy anything. If this doesn't help anyone right now, perhaps it will in the future. *Rana ps to moderators: there aren't any community tags for music or ipods
