Resolved Question:

I have an iPod with approx 4,000 songs on it. Recently, my computer crashed and my music files were lost, because I didn't back it up. The songs on my ipod still play. If I add music to it or change any of my music, will I loose all of what I have. I cannot afford to replace it all. Is there any way for me to retrieve or store in a file the music currently on my ipod?

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
