    Well, my iTunes has cleared, and all my songs are still on my Ipod. The programs that enable me to transfer all these files back to iTunes, none of the pick up my ipod, even though its on,conected etc.
    Anyone know if any program works withthe Ipod Touch that does what i need?

    This is assuming you are jailbroken...maybe try this.. It picks up your ipod touch as a "shared" music directory, try to transfer them back to "music" from there. Let me know if this works, I am curious..

    Will try it out then. How do you set iTunes to share music?

    Update: TUAW Reader Jonathan adds: "Safari redirects to /beta/. I bypassed that by going into installer.app's sources page and manually adding http://home.mike.tl/iphone. Installer picked it up right away, and it's building my music database now. "

    I got this all to work earlier, but never tried the file transfer.

    Set to share under itunes preferences/sharing

    hmm. I'm not sure then. As soon as I added the source, I got Firefly in installer, try refreshing sources? If you can't get it to work, I will try it myself and let you know if it is at least possible or not.

    Let me know how it goes. Don't forget to "pet" your ipod as it is building the database. I had mine shutdown on me because I forgot.
