author 2014-03-10 posted by Jacqueline Ho in Perth

These days it's rare to meet someone who hasn't owned or used an iPod before. iPod has dominated the MP3 player market for years, with a range of makes and models suitable for varying music listening preferences and lifestyles. For music technology so widely used, it's normal that situations would arise for users when the music data stored inside the device needs to be copied somewhere else. However, given the built-in restrictions in iPods, although moving your music onto the device is as simple as a click, transferring music anywhere else can be tough.

Luckily, nowadays iPod music transfer software tools are available that can make the process easy and enjoyable.

The manual method to transfer music from an iPod to a computer is a mighty headache (to learn more, check out our how-to here), although it is possible. Transferring to any other device, however, can't normally be done without first copying music onto the computer.

With KiwiG PhonTunes, the world's only completely free music transfer software, not only can you easily transfer your iPod's music to your computer in minutes, but you can also move it to any other external device just as easily. This includes another iPod, an iPhone, iPad, Android phone, external hard drive or even a USB.

Other music transfer software exists, and they all offer a free trial. Two popular choices are CopyTrans and TunesGo These two also offer great music transfer capabilities, and TunesGo is also available for the Mac. The trial for these two alternatives offers between 20 and 100 song transfers. Above that and you've got to start subscription use.

With PhonTunes, that won't ever be a problem, as we guarantee lifetime free usage of the app's full feature set. This makes it incredibly simple to transfer an entire library of hundreds of songs from your iPod to any other device, not just to your computer. What's more, you can always move music again later, and avoid transferring the same songs by using the duplicate detection function.

Now, we'll walk you through how to transfer music from you iPod to anywhere using KiwiG PhonTunes.

Step 1Connect your iPod to the computer. Launch KiwiG PhonTunes. When PhonTunes opens you will see all recognized devices displayed on the left-hand panel, all your music displayed in the center, and the transfer options at the top.
