iPod issue. Nowt to do with gardening.

I have music on my iPod, but not saved on computer. My battery is poorly and Hubby says I can have his iPod. Is there a way to get my music onto his iPod?

Can mine be saved to a hard drive, then transferred? 

Is there safe software I can download to do this?

Long shot I know, but you're such a clever bunch.image

    The software used to put music onto the iPod should allow it to be copied the other way - I think. Once copied to computer connect the other iPod and transfer to that one.

    If you have your music stored to the Cloud, when you sync your ipad to the computer, it will transfer (works with photos so I reckon it will work with music). Or connect with the usb cable the ipad to the computer and use iTunes on the computer to get the music off the ipad.

    Back in the day ( ie , the last time I tried ) you were not able to copy music FROM the iPod onto the computer. I think it was to stop folk copying music from other people's iPods. 

    Is it possible now? 

    No cloud here , sorry. Too " old school " image

    Sorry. Read that as iPad not iPod. Ignore what I’ve just said!

    I don't think you can unfortunately.

    What make and I'll ask around my learned friends.

    it's a Classic 160Gb.

    I've got over 30 days of music on mine, but the battery doesn't hold the charge so I can only use it on a docking station.

    I think there is a way, but you'd have to grapple with the dreaded iTunes, and if you manage that you're a better man than I...

    If you have an Apple store near you you could take it in and see if they could do the transfer for you. To save a wasted journey you could telephone ahead first to see if it is possibe for them to do it.

    I've just done a search using "transferring music from ipod to ipod" and there do seem to be ways to do it.  First link I went to gives a step by step walkthrough.  Certainly worth having a look.
