Transfer music from iPod to computer in a easy and safe way

iPod to Computer Transfer Safe is a program made for the times when you must step beyond the bounds of iTunes for the sake of preserving the music on your iPod. In the event when your computer has lost all of the music or when you have a wish to move some files from your iPod to a second computer, this program does the job.

iTunes has been designed to only allow the transfer of music from the computer to your iPod, but this tool makes it possible to move files in the opposite direction - simply connect your iPod to your computer; then, open up iPod to Computer Transfer Safe and select the music to be transferred. You can browse through the items on your iPod by playlist, search bar, or you can scroll through everything. Once you have clicked on the check-box of the file you want to copy from your iPod and have designated the destination folder, press “Transfer” and the program will place that music on your computer almost instantly. This easy way of copying items from your iPod comes in handy in many situations.

However, the "standard" version is really a limited demo, being that it cannot transfer more than one song at once and it cannot synchronize a playlist back with iTunes. It is inevitable that you must buy the "pro" edition if you want to use the program as intended. Secondly, the only files that this program moves from your computer are audio files, nothing else can be transferred. Also, this program seems designed to make plagiarizing easy, being that you can move files that you did not purchase from someone else's iPod onto your computer. Finally, you cannot select multiple files at once - you must click on each tiny individual check-box.
