Get winamp.

Once you have that, you can take music off of anyone's ipod and put it onto your computer, or put it onto anyone's ipod, or any other mp3 player for that matter, with ease.

The ipod takes all the music you put on it and scrambles the file names, but it keeps the id3 tags intact so that it knows whats on it. Anyone can view those scrambled files, though they're normally set to invisible, so you have to unhide them, but thats beside the point.

What winamp does is it reads those files, and takes info from the id3 tags,when you tell it to import a song or album, it takes the id3 tag info and applies it to the song title. et voila.

It imports them to C:My music if I'm correct. ( I'm not on my home comp right now, I'm on my grandparents...)

In any case, I use winamp to manage all my music, for my Zen, my brothers ipod, and all my friends ipods.

I know there are also standalone programs for uploading music to your comp from an ipod, but I dunno the names of any.

Plug in your ipod, it should be detected automatically and show up in the bottom of the list on the left side, look through it, find what you want, right click and hit copy to local media.
