Ripping songs from one iPod to another

Postby Makan24-7 » Fri, 07 Sep 2007 9:14 pm

Hello everyone,
Does anyone know of software that allows us to rip songs from one iPod to another? I've got an 2005 iPod Photo 30GB which has plenty of songs in it from many different computers and I'd like to transfer them to my iPod Touch. Appreciate the help!

Cheers!

Use iTunes to synch your old ipod, then plug in the Touch and synch again ?

Or are you saying the music on your old ipod was bought from the iTunes store and authorised on the other computers you copied from ?

Could you simply plug the ipod headphone jack into the mic socket of your PC and then record the input ? (sounds messy !)

Yeah, the songs on my old iPod are from several authorized laptops and only 2 of them are in Singapore now. I need to be able to rip the songs from my old iPod to my spanking new iPod Touch.

Yeah recording that way sounds way messy.

Were these songs originally MP3s, or did you buy them from iTunes? Songs bought from iTunes are copy-protected, and may not transfer easily from one iPod to another.

I know of 2 programs that will pull all the songs/playlists/data from one iPod, - you can then use this program to load another iPod, or just use iTunes.

Free - EphPod (tougher to use) - http://www.ephpod.com/
CopyTrans - not free, but great (I use this) - http://www.copytrans.net/

If all else fails, use ITunes to burn CD's for all the music you have, then load to a new IPod with a fresh version of ITunes.

that's also the way I've 'unprotected' tunes bought from itunes store in the past, however, not sure you'll be able to do that here, as you need to authorise the tunes to be able to burn them using iTunes (I think?)

I managed to do similar with Anapod Explorer/CopyGear, (google it) I had to pay for the software though. Cheaper than re-buying still :)

You would need to un-drm your song files. Doom9 forum (http://www.doom9.net) has some tips on doing this, and which free-ware's are available (eg drmdbg, freeme2, fairuse4wm, mirakagi, etc etc) for unprotecting music you rightfully own and have paid for.
