    Can anyone assist? After a catastrophic failure I have had to buy an new PC (just the tower) anyway to cut long story short I have just finished reinstalling everything except my ipod music. Now I had that music only recently backed up on a CD so it was a simple matter to reinstall. However, I have about 8 songs I have paid for which are on my iPod Nano but not now on my PC. Is there a way of syncing my iPod back to the PC so thereby putting everything back as it was, and if so how do you do it?? Thanks for any help in advance.

    Ah this thread again :)

    Often suggested it to enable disc use in iTunes and mount the iPod as a drive in order to copy the contents of the iPod back to iTunes by dragging it across

    Formally known as Copypod.

    Works well, and saves all that ripping again!

    Thanks everyone for the assistance - I tried the method mentioned in the iPod lounge but this didn't seem to work very well so used copytrans. The only thing I didn't realise is that the free version is limited to 100 songs. By sheer good fortune the eight songs that I was missing were part of the 100 so I am pleased with result.
