Transferring Files Off iPod

If you’ve ever wanted to get files off your iPod, it can be an eye-opening experience. iTunes doesn’t offer the option to export files to your desktop, I expect this is to keep scum like the RIAA happy. While it can be done manually, it’s not a task for the faint of heart, thanks to mangled file names and a file structure on the iPod that throws stuff all over the place it all becomes something of a hunt.

Fortunately there is a solution. A clever standalone shareware programme called Podutil wil do the job nicely. It’s available for Mac OS 9 and OS X, as well as Win2K and WinXP

    Hmm I’ve never experienced this, it’s been an an easy drag’n’drop thing for me. I normally keep photos and web sites I’ve designed on there. But I assume you are talking about mp3 and such.

    Any stuff that’s dragged and dropped onto the iPod is fine, but it’s the MP3s that are imported into the iPod file system via iTunes that aren’t exportable back to the desktop. Most annoying
