Hi there.
Can anybody help me with this one?
I would like to connect to the apple site with my ipod to have it diagnosed online but first I need to move all my music etc 3000+ songs. How can I back these up and be able to move them all back again when I want.
Thanks Banjoman.

Hello banjoman, Welcome
Look at these instructions to movefrom ipod to PC

Moving your iTunes Music folder

They are from this section of THIS PAGE ,which has more info on the whole process.

Using your iPod to Move your iTunes Library
While Transfer purchases from iPod lets you use your iPod to move your purchases from one computer to another, you canít transfer songs from other sources that way. You can however use your iPod to transfer those songs by using your iPod as a hard drive. If your iPod is nearly full of tunes, you may need to remove someóor allóto temporarily make room for your iTunes library.

For the complete low-down on using your iPod as a hard drive to move your iTunes library, go here.

For other options to transfer your iTunes library between Macs go here, or go here for Windows.

And, if youíve just run out of space on your iTunes library hard drive and want to move the library to another drive on the same computer with more space, go here.

The first link above was accessed by clicking on the word 'here'

Unfortunately the safest backup is to back them to cd's,as the article says. Quick math is 200 CD's

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
