Restoring lost iTunes library from an iPod Classic


Recommended Posts

My son's notebook's HDD failed, and he lost his iTunes library. It was mostly files ripped from CD. It is still on his 160GB iPod Classic. I am looking for how to recover the files from the iPod to his library.


I've already copied the files directly from the iPod to the desktop on his notebook, but nothing I've tried had restored them to his library.


All the free downloads I've looked at so far seem to work with iPhones or the Touch, but not the Classic.


Any ideas? The notebook is running Win8 if that makes a difference.


He leaves for a three to six month adventure on Monday, so I'm trying to complete this over the weekend.

+1. Senuti has worked well for me in similar circumstances.
