Does any one know how to readback *.mp3 files from Apple iPod and copy to local drive?


    Connect your I-pod.
    now click on tools-->>Folder Options-->View-->Show hidden files
    Also there is a checkbox "hide protected system files"-->Uncheck it.

    Now open your I-pod.You wil find plenty of hidden folders.
    One of them wil contain your mp3 files.

    All the best !

    The mp3 files are stored in 4 lettered folders. I havent figured out the logic of doing this though.

    I agree but the file names will be in encrypted format.Original file name is replaced by four alphabets.

    For Ex:
    Orig. file name--> Shivaji.mp3
    Encrypted file name in iPOD --> SDFR.mp3

    I am working on this will post more details.

    Raknahs, good observation. But you know what, the name changes does not affect the mp3 playback as such 😁 ... plus theres always the idv3 tag to know more information on the file.
