My old Mac completely died. I immediately bought a new one. The only thing I regretted was that I lost my music catalog. I just realized that all that old stuff is also on an old iPod that I have. The iTunes on the new computer allows me to play it from the iPod, but not move it into the new Mac. How to copy music from iPod to iTunes on a new computer?

iPod is really a good handy device to store tons of songs and provides high-quality music. The only annoying thing about the otherwise perfect iPod is that you can’t transfer your songs back from your device to your Mac easily. Apple restricts its portable gadgets only sync with one iTunes Library at a time. Any attempt to sync an iPod to another iTunes Library will cause an erased iPod. Besides, tansfering files only goes in one way with iTunes. That is, you are allowed to transfer files from your computer to your iOS device, but not from the device back to the computer. Therefore, if you want to backup your iPod data to your computer, or copy the iPod music to a new computer, you have to find another way to make it. Here I would like to share you a practical iOS management tool, FoneLab for iOS, which works as an iTunes alternative but performs better than iTunes.
