Unlike iTunes, MediaMonkey allows you to copy or backup tracks from an iPhone or iPod to a PC.
To copy all contents:
a) When the iPod is plugged into the PC, MediaMonkey will recognize the device and it will appear in the
MediaMonkey Media Tree.
b) From within the MediaMonkey, you can browse the tracks on the iPod by Artist,
Album, etc. Select whatever tracks you want to copy.
c) Click Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags, so that tags of the selected
tracks are updated to match the iPod's DB
d) Select the tracks you wish to copy and right-click 'Auto-Organize'.
e) Enable 'Copy files to new destination based on track tags'.
f) Set the destination to which tracks should be copied and click 'OK'.
To Copy only a subset of tracks:
a) If you want to add the tracks to the Library, Copy and then paste the selected tracks into
a directory in MediaMonkey's Library | Locations node.
b) If you want to add the tracks to a drive or device, without adding them to the library, Copy
and Paste the selected tracks into a directory in MediaMonkey's My Computer node.
