iPod disk

January 4th, 2006

New iPod users invariably ask me one question: How do I get the music off my iPod? And normally I reply, get “Podworks” from Sci-Fi software.

But from now on, I think I’ll be recommending “iPodDisk” instead. Just launch this app when your iPod is connected, and a new volume pops up on your mac desktop containing all your music, conveniently sorted by metadata tags; even Smart Playlists show up as copyable folders. And: it works with Spotlight and Windows formatted iPods. Nifty, clever, and free.

    How do I link my iPod to te new PC without purging the existing library?
