need help with transfering ipod music?

Question by big bird .: need help with transfering ipod music?
My computer recently crashed and i had to re-install my software, i backed up everything i neded to except my music which i figured was on my I-pod and which in turn would mirror the librarys in I-tunes, but, apple was a step ahead of me. The new ipods only work with the new i tunes, which requires you to synk your ipod to your library, and that puts a code on your ipod tellin your itunes it is aloud to put music on it. To do that, you have to wipe the i pods library. A teacher told me that there is a third party software the i can download from the internet. He also said that this can become extra credit work so its even more imparitive that i get this done. Im aloud to use three websights this being one, so im in no way breaking rules lol cause some ppl have yelled at me for that on this sight before. Basicly, does anyone know where i can get this software or software that would work. Remember new ipods cant be seen in windows exp. or my computer

thanks in advance

    Its not that new iPods only work with new i-Tunes, it’s that you can only have your iPod synced with 1 iTunes (They don’t want you bringing you pod to your friend’s and getting his music, they want you to BUY it from them). Don’t waste your time with third party software…I did the following and it worked perfectly:

    Open iTunes and select edit/preferences/advanced/general. Put a check mark in the box marked “copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library” and also “keep iTunes music folder organized”, then click ‘ok’.

    Then go to file/add folder, open ‘my computer’

    Then connect the iPod. after about 10 seconds, you will see your ipod come up in the ‘my computer’ section you have already opened. Double click your iPod.

    The music files should transfer to your iTunes Automatically. by clicking the ipod as soon as it is connected, you beat the “Sync and Erase” option.

    Once all your music is taken from your iPod and stored on iTunes, you can sync and erase your pod to sync with your new iTunes. Once you are synced, it will re-add all of your music to your iPod.

    Good Luck!
