So, i'm wondering if it's possible to transfer my music from my Ipod back to my computer, if the music is no longer on my computer?

I formatted my computer without backing up my music so... yeah, there's 30+gb of music i really don't feel like re-downloading.

Actually... yes!

What you need to do: Enable hidden files and folders in the Control Panel under "Folder Options". There then should be some previously hidden folders on the iPod that you can now see which contain songs and album artwork, among other things. They'll have really random file names, but that doesn't matter; once you put them back into Windows they should correct themselves.

Well, at least that's how it worked on my iPods.

My Ipod doesn't display as a normal drive would in My Computer, is there a way i can access it in a similar fashion?
