Since I lost a significant part of my iTunes music library in a crash I am using SharePod. This nice little tools that lets you sync your music back from iPod to your PC without installing any third party tools on your PC – the program itself resides on the iPod. Of course you should not do with it what the name of the program may imply.
Now a friend of mine has a similar problem: iTunes library on an Apple Notebook is gone, the iPod holds lots of music, and only a Windows Laptop is available. Does anybody know a tool that lets you sync your music from an Apple formated iPod back to an Windows based laptop? No, buying an Apple computer is not an option – even if it would be the better choice.
