Copy MP3 files from your iPod to hard drive

Have you ever needed to retrieve a song on your computer that is stored on your iPod or iPhone?

If so, then you'll know that iTunes won't do it. iPod Access solves this problem by allowing you to select individual songs, movies, podcasts and playlists to be moved back into iTunes or an external hard drive. There are several features and modes which allow you to do this namely Force Manual Mode, iTunes Integration, Duplicate Song Checking, Preserve MetaData, Track Organization and integration with the iTunes Music Store.

Force Manual Mode prevents that problem that all iPod owners dread - the moment when iTunes erases all of your data on your iPod. iPod Access detects iPods in Auto-Update mode and instantly gives you the option to switch to Manual Mode. However, note that this option does not work for iPod Shuffles or iPhones.

iTunes Integration means that iPod Access transfers your songs, movies, podcasts and playlists directly into iTunes on your computer. Duplicate Song Checking is self explanatory and Preserve MetaData means that added extras, along with track name, artist and album are embedded in the song file on your iPod.

Note that as the name suggests, iPod Access is only really suitable for iPods and not iPod Shuffles or iPhones. You'll also need to make sure you have the latest iPod firmware 1.2 installed plus QuickTime 7.2 or higher.

iPod Access adds a ton of new functionality to the way you manage and access your iPod and should make the life easier for any iPod owner.
