MediaMonkey can copy files from an iPhone, iPod or iPod to a PC.
To copy selected files:
- When the iPod/iPhone/iPad is plugged into the PC, MediaMonkey will recognize the device and it will appear in the MediaMonkey Media Tree (iTunes is required to be installed for iOS devices).
- From within the MediaMonkey, you can browse the files on the device by Artist, Album, etc. Select whatever files you want to copy.
- Click Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags, so that tags of the selected files are updated to match the device's database.
- Select the files you wish to copy, right-click on them and select Auto-Organize Files from the context menu.
- Enable the option Copy files to new destination based on file tags.
- Set the Destination to which the files should be copied and click OK.
Alternative methods to copy selected files:
- If you want to add the files to the Library, Copy and then Paste the selected files into a folder in a Collections Location sub-node.
- If you want to add the files to a drive or device, without adding them to the Library, Copy and Paste the selected tracks into a folder in MediaMonkey's My Computer node.
