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?
