iPod recovery

by IanB on March 25, 2011

Q: I have received my laptop PC back from being repaired and noticed that iTunes wasn’t loaded on the machine. I’m worried that I’ll lose my playlists on the iPod when I plug it into my computer after reinstalling iTunes. What can I do to recover my playlists? I have a 30GB classic iPod. Any help or advice will be gratefully received.

A: There are a number of programs around that will allow you to recover the contents of an iPod back onto the PC. You need to install something like iPod Rescue or YamiPod. Either of these will let you copy the tracks from your iPod back to your computer. You should then be able to re-import them into iTunes without losing anything.

In order to recover files from an iPod back to your PC you need some third-party software
