I wanted to transfer the entire collection of songs and movies from my ipod nano to Vista laptop.
Idump came to the rescue,it seamlessly copied all my stuff and also preserved the original files on ipod.
To use it,download it from here.
This is a nice freeware that gets the work done quickly.
Method to copy :
1.After downloading the exe from the website,copy it to the root of ipod.Obviously you need to have ipod connected to the PC 🙂
2.Run the exe file after it is copied to ipod.
3.Follow the onscreen instructions of idump and specify the target destination on PC where you need the stuff to be copied.
Here is the link of good folks who have made idump.
