    I always use an ipod rip software, never buy it, because i'm cheap i just do 100 songs at a time (the max they allow you to do with out buying it) the good thing about doing it that way, is you can go through and get rid of songs you don't listen to it.

    Thank you ever so.
    I am VERY happy for you, my dear friend!

    Music is a lifelong passion of mine.

    At one point the external hard drive I saved all my music (MP3s) to crashed and I lost EVERYTHING.

    Considering I ripped all my 550+ CDs to MP3 by myself, and then encoded them all to 192 kBit MP3 with LAME v3.92, I was devastated.

    Luckily, a friend of mine had copied most of my music collection to his external hard drive, so I only lost about 25% of everything once I got the contents of his drive back on my system.

    THE MORAL OF THE STORY:

    Buy a $99 external hard drive and back up all your music REGULARLY, like maybe once per week or once per month, depending on how often you acquire things.

    Here's the one I bought recently:

    (NOTE: It is a good model if you know where all your muxi folders are. I have one directory on my PC that is the "Master" directory, all else is within it, so all I have to do is copy it to my external drive and I get a full backup of my vital data in one click.

    IF YOU ARE LAZY, this one has a utility that will seek ALL the files on your PC that should be backed up, and do it in one fell swoop with no wrok on your part:

    I own both, because I'm paranoid about losing data, and because despite being organized, I am pretty damn lazy at times.

    Yay for you! You got your tunes back!!!

    I'ma go for the fell swoop, and thank you very much for the product recommendation. This will greatly increase my peace of mind!

    Oh, glad you found something. I used CopyTrans to do that same thing. It copied from iPod and then transferred the entire library and playlists into iTunes. It costed $14.95, though. Well worth the cost for me.

    My music collection I have on my phone is a personal collection of 660 songs from 1997 to 2010, all of my favorite songs. It's incredibly personal and I would be devastated too if I lost it.

    Yeah, I don't mind paying a little something for software that's been recommended by someone who's had good personal experience with it! That's how I felt about my music, too -- "an incredibly personal" collection.

    Thanks Oxygen and Miss Chknz for responding, too!

    Same thing here, except I wasn't able to recover any of it.

    I should know better.

    I just dropped a 1TB external drive in an external case a week ago. I broke the sata cable's end. It got butchered. Not sure if the drive still works. I think the external bay is a cushion? :P
