I recently had to reboot my PC and when I downloaded iTunes again and hooked up my iPod, nothing happened. I couldn't even find any files from my iPod on my computer. I have 466 songs and so now I have a feeling I have to re-download all of my songs again. :(

That will take forever. :(

Any help on a way to back up my iPod without paying for software? :o

You had to redownload stuff because of rebooting? Your computer sounds like it's having bigger problems than iPod connectivity :yik:

Define "reboot".
You know you might be using other meaning for reboot. :p

You mean, reformat? Or HP PC owners might call it "recovery" ?

Anyone with brains won't buy your silly program. Not when there is freeware available to do the same job.

I used a programme called Ephpod.

You install it, plug in your ipod and follow the wizard. It helped me alot when I tried to get all my songs saved to my new computer.:)

did you remember to unauthorize your computer before you reformatted it? you need to authorize your computer to use the Ipod before you can do anything with it. have you done that yet?

Yeah, I think so but if I didn't, is that the reason why my computer isn't getting any of my music?

Thanks and if it doesn't work I will have to find more options or I will just do it the old fashion way. :hug:

EDIT: Okay, I downloaded it and have all of my songs on Ephpod's library and now I don't now how to get it all on my iTunes. I now have it on my computer but I don't know how to import it. :o

tell itunes to import files from the folder where you downloaded everything to. OR.. move them to the itunes library folder, and reimport from there.

OR.. if itunes is of no use to you as far as transferring files to and from your iPod - just play them with Windows Media Player. That is unless you actually prefer iTunes for some reason.

YAY! It's working! I had to download the older version because the newer one is too hard to follow. :p

It's importing the songs onto iTunes and if it doesn't turn out well, then I will just have to just give up and do it the old fashion way. :o

Oh my god! STOP IT! :mad:

Thanks! I did it from Ephpod's library and it only has a 100 song import limit. So, I need to do this one. :hug: :D

EDIT: None of that came up when I clicked on the Add Folder to Library. :confused:

Gladous, look under "Add File to library" and try that way by selecting all the files you want to import.

or.. look under "My Documents" for the "Itunes" folder. within that folder, there should be a location to place your songs. Move your songs there with a simply cut/paste from their current location. then re-open itunes. if they are not automatically added to the itunes library - you may have to look under the "Library" menu option and tell it to re-index the folder.

Earlier, I couldn't get it to work so I just started getting my CD's on there and then I did Ephpod and only got 291/433 songs on it.

I tried doing what SpikeJones said and nothing happened. :confused:

When you have found the folder, like you have done in the 3rd image, what happens when you try to open it?

It adds the same songs I already have and not any of the other ones and when I used Ephpod, it had a 100 song limit so I couldn't get all of my songs on my library.

OK, here is a guide as if I was starting from the very begining. Just so there isn't anything you may have missed.:)

1. Connect Ipod.

2. Follow the on-screen instructions.

3. Find Ipod from the drop down list.

4. Let it do its thing!

5. Click on the songs to find that they are all there.
http://i40.************/n1fs4g.jpg

6. Click on the fist song so it is highlighted. Shown in the picture before. Press Ctrl + A, to select all the songs.
http://i41.************/u6689.jpg

7. Now, make a new folder somewhere where you can easily find it. E.g. Desktop.
http://i43.************/2ele9sg.jpg

8. Go back to EphPod. All the songs should still be selected. Right click on any of the songs and choose the 'Copy songs to directory Ctrl + Alt + C' option.
http://i44.************/2na5yzb.jpg

9. A new box should appear, with folders and places to search.
http://i43.************/zlcklh.jpg

10. Find the folder you made earlier, and select it.
http://i44.************/28aoz6s.jpg

11. It should now take you back to EphPod and should tell you it is copying the songs.
http://i41.************/25ipytj.jpg

12. Find the folder again once it has finished copying. (notice that if you had album artwork on your Ipod then it will be shown on the thumbnail of the folder.)
http://i40.************/t9fh3d.jpg

13. Open the folder to check that all the songs are there and in check.
http://i39.************/2vbq341.jpg

You can then continue to try import the folder through Itunes like in the previous guide. (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=3689484&postcount=20):wve:
