How to transfer songs from Apple iPod to computer

Transfer song from iPod to computer

Do you know that iTunes is one-way? That means you can only download your music from your computer via iTunes to your iPod but not transfer music from iPod to computer?

The official reason is anti-piracy. If you can copy music from your iPod to any computer (including your friends!!)….hey….that’s piracy isn’t it? We agree with that idea but then what happens:

1. When the computer crashes and need to be recovered.

2. When we just bought a new computer to replace the current one.

3. When we have a seperate computer for work/school and one for home.

4. Using two ipods on the same computer
