Many thanks to Christopher Breen for writing the excellent Two-way Street article, “Moving Music Off the iPod: Rescuing your music when your hard drive goes phhht.” Using the straightforward instructions included in this article, I was able to use the free software program TinkerTool for Macintosh OS X to view the previously invisible music files on my iPod Nano and copy them over to my new hard drive.
Without this procedure, I would have lost the purchased iTunes Music Store audio books I had on my old computer, whose hard drive crashed recently. Yeah for saved digital files! 🙂
The article also includes instructions for saving / copying iPod music files from an iPod to a Windows-based computer.
