    Hi
    I am new this to forum and need some help please.
    I currently have approx. 1000 songs on my i pod touch. (32Gb 3.0)This is synchronised with my current PC.
    I have a new PC and have downloaded itunes software. However, the ipod will not let me syncronise with the new PC other than deleting the 1000 songs. Clearly I need to keep my existing library.
    Question is how do I transfer all the songs to my new computer?

    i fyou can get them on the same network, and do some file sharing and copy them over. Or get a large enough hard drive, copy your songs to that, and then to your new PC

    You could also go into iTunes and back it up to CDs or DVDs and resore to backup on your new computer. It will say you are on a new computer and lose your data but you won't because it is all there. Backup with file--library---backup to disc.

    All iTunes Songs will be stored in My Documents/My Music/ and then i think its iTunes folder. So copy the entire folder and paste this in your new system. So you can save your 1000 songs. All these applies only in windows.
