"I am crazy about songs, especially rock music. And I have downloaded nearly thousands of songs into my iPod in the past three years. All of them touched the bottom of my heart. And I can't imagine the day I lost all my iPod songs. So I want to transfer and back up iPod music to my computer in case bad things happen. Anyone has an excellent iOS transfer tool to recommend? Thx in advance."
I happened to see this post on iOS data manage forum. How to copy songs from iPod to computer? To be honest, there are many iDevice users, including iPhone and iPad users are asking this kind of question. Some ask how to transfer music from iPod to iTunes, and some ask how to transfer photos from iPod to computer? Even you say you want to transfer files from iPod to PC, iOS Transfer, the excellent software I want to recommend to you can help you copy almost any iOS data you want. It's now compatible with iPod shuffle/touch/nano/classic, and so on. Now, why not download it on your PC and read the tutorial below to try it.
Just connect iPod to laptop via USB cable, launch iOS Transfer and read the guide provided, you will learn how to get music from iPod shuffle to computer.

After installing and launching the iPad Transfer, connect your iPod Shuffle to the computer with USB cable. The program will start detecting your device in no time. Then, you will see a main interface as below.
Note: To manage iOS data, you should make sure that you have installed iTunes on your computer before. You don't have to run iTunes when using iOS Transfer, but you should make sure that you have one.
Step 2 Transfer music from iPod to PC
In the left side of the interface, you can click "Media" and click "Music" on the top of the window. You can see a picture like this. Choose all the songs you want and click "Export to" and choose "Export to My Computer". You are allowed to choose whichever path you want to save the songs in your PC.
That's it! Though iTunes can show you how to transfer songs from iPod to computer, it is complex and risky for you to try because the progress is easily gets wrong. And what's worse, any data transfer should be based on iTunes. That means if you want to show how to transfer music from iPod to iPod, you should back up your iPod music to iTunes first and then try to sync the iPod music to iPod with iTunes.
