    I recently had Windows XP reinstalled and i lost all my music except for the songs on my ipod. When i was trying to recover them my ipod would show up as a camera but still show up in iTunes, well when i went to fix that my ipod didnt show up at all so i thought i was royally screwed until i stumled upon this little method.


    This is a really simple way to get all your songs off your Ipod Touch with out using the confusing(if your a n00b) Total Commander method:

    1.) Download the free trial of Touch Copy: http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/
    2.) Connect Ipod Touch
    3.) Hit View Files
    3.5) Find files by going to Itunes Control and then Music**
    4.) Hit Copy Files to PC
    5.) Find iTunes Source File
    6.) Save to file**(should take time with a lot of songs)
    7.) Open up iTunes
    8.) Go to File and Add Folder
    9.) Go to where your saved the Music folder from step 6 and add files

    **Step 5 is really important so you don't have the ! show up next to your songs in iTunes


    **The files should be in F and some number (ex: F26)
    the file names will look like:
    TJSK
    The Killers
    Sawdust


    have no fear because when you open them the song names, artists, albums etc... will show up


    if you dont already know how to get your purchased songs:
    1.)Plug in Ipod
    2.)Open iTunes
    3.)On the sidebar Right click your ipod
    4.)Click Transfer purchases

    just as a safety precaussion i restored my ipod then it was recognized by the computer


    Good Luck....I hope this helped
