    Sorry if this question has been asked before.

    My PC crashed yesterday and all of my music, email history, contacts and calendar is on my iPod Touch. Is it possible to sync everything back to my PC (not a mac) from my 2nd gen Touch?

    I purchased most of the songs from iTunes. I also transferred a lot of music from CDs. I'm also concerned about my contacts, emails and calendar.

    If you purchased them go download it again and reload your cd's

    I'm looking for a solution to transfer everything back from my iPod to my PC. I don't want to reload all of my CDs or download my songs from iTunes again (I don't think you can and you can transfer your purchases back to iTunes anyway.)

    I really need a program or other way of doing a full restore from my iPod back to iTunes and sync my calendar and email to Outlook.

    Sharepod will take care of your music for you.

    If sharepod doesn't work you can get JUST the purchased iTunes music which is DRM so you can't download again unless you call Tech Support Level 2 at Apple and make a special request, and then they need to accept it and reset the downloads but then you don't get everything back if the song was moved to a different album from iTunes or something.

    anyways,

    Just plug in your ipod and make sure its iTunes 8 and click "Transfer Purchases" put in your account info and then all the music on your iPod that was purchased automatically goes to your library.

    And like previously stated, sharepod for all music not just purchases.

    Nevermind, I was able to sync back to my PC. I was afraid that it would erase my ipod, but it worked.
