    Okay, here's how it goes.
    I have a laptop that stored all my music, contacts, apps, notes, etc.
    My laptop was having major problems so I gave it to my aunt that works with computers.
    She gave it to this guy that analyzed the problems and whatnot, and found out the problem, whatever.
    I get it back but everything on it was deleted, so my backup of contacts and music and games are gone.
    I still have every song and number and email on my phone from before my laptop was cleared, but I'm afraid of updating or syncing my phone because I don't want to lose everything on it.

    Is there a program that can put all the files onto my laptop other than Disk Aid?

    You can re-download the games for free, just make a list of them

    or you can ssh them to computer to be safe

    I'm not too worried about the games, but I don't want to redownload every single song and phone number I used to have.
    I'll try it out with SSH.

    using ssh would be perfect if it would work
    just wondering if anyone has found where the music is located in the ipod's file system
    this would be great for music backups but i cant find it

    I tried it with my ringtones and it's worked so far.
    Gonna be a pain selecting every single song though.
