Getting Stuff Off An Ipod Touch

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Jan 13, 2011.

  1. While my mother was staying with me, I loaded up her Ipod Touch with various
    video and music items. Now that she’s gone back, her grandson tells her he’s
    unable to save the stuff off the Ipod onto a Windows PC. So he has to play
    it as it is, and presumably at some point once he turns Apple’s Itunes loose
    on it, all the stuff I’ve put there will be wiped.

    But I’ve heard someone else say that Apple’s Itunes does indeed let you copy
    stuff off an Ipod onto a PC.

    Is that right? Or is there some other Windows software that will do the job?

    Alternatively, I could give my brother a crash course in booting up Linux
    and using the tools that I used to access the Ipod here...

    iTunes will allow you to pull back media purchased from iTunes, for
    other media you need to use a third party tool.

    Apple is trying to protect copyright holders from LDO's piracy.
