Are you ready to learn how to copy music from iPod to computer without any obstacles? The troubles associated with transferring music stored in an iOS device (whether iPhone, iPad or iPod) can be easily avoided in few seconds with KiwiG PhonTunes.

Why is so annoying to copy music from iPod to computer?

We store music in various places: on computers and iPods (or other MP3 player), on hard drives and USB sticks, on our smartphones, and who knows what music technology is going to pop up next. Sadly, when any of these devices crash or are severely damaged, sometimes the only copy of your music is stored on a device with copying restrictions, such as an iPod. Apple gadgets, aiming to protect music copyrights, do not allow for copying of libraries to computers without your iTunes account. Any attempt could result in a complete overwrite of your existing iPod data, and your music could be lost for good.

So if you have found yourself in a position where you need to copy music from your iPod to a computer, a third-party software solution may be the best option.
