How to Transfer Music from iPod Touch to iPod?

author 2014-05-19 posted by Jacqueline Ho in Perth

There are many reasons why someone might need to move music from an iPod touch to a iPod. Perhaps you’re saying goodbye the Touch and introducing a more suitable iPod into your music player arsenal. Maybe you like to have two different models for different tasks in your life. Maybe you’re just cleaning up your music playlists. Whatever the reason, it’s sadly kind of difficult to accomplish.

iPods have built-in transfer restrictions to protect the intellectual property and copyrights of the artists who made the music and to reduce misuse of the iTunes software. Kudos to Apple for thinking about this and taking care of our beloved musicians, but unfortunately that does mean that it’s impossible to simply drag and drop music files from Apple devices. Only iTunes store purchased items can be moved to the computer, and they can’t (under any circumstances) be directly moved between devices through iTunes alone.

Some hacks exist to help you recover your music, some of them simple, some of them complex. iPod Touch is particularly tricky, because even the first model disabled the "Enable Disk Use" function that the earlier iPods had, allowing freer music migration. Even if you do manually go in and follow the many-step process to crack the iPods, you can’t move playlists, ratings, or play counts.

In saying this, I’m going to recommend anyone facing this conundrum to give KiwiG PhonTunes a try. It’s guaranteed free for life, and also works for PC, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, and external storage music migration. It’ll transfer not only the music, but also all song details, and can even move your playlists (cause we all know you love that playlist you spent hours putting together). It’s as easy as four steps and a few minutes to move your music directly between your iPod and iPod touch.

How to transfer music from computer to iPod without iTunes:

Step 1.Plug in the iPod Touch and your iPod. Launch KiwiG PhonTunes, and click on the iPod Touch tab on the far-right of the software.

Step 2.In the iPod Touch music directory (on the right, after clicking the tab), select any songs you want to move.

Step 3.Click on the arrow icon in the upper-right corner of the music list. This is the transfer-between-devices function. A window will open.

Step 4.In the window, make sure the iPod is the selected device to transfer to. Then, click Start. In a few minutes, your music will transfer and you’re ready to listen!
