    Expert xema gave me some help in my own question about this problem.

    My hard drive crashed, and I hadn't backed up my ITunes installation, so I had to get all my songs brought over from CDs (not bought from the ITunes music store) back from my IPOD, and also get all my playlists that I'd spent time on.

    The software in my note in the Solution worked well for me after I bought it, and it brought over my playlists to the ITunes on my new computer automatically (with the push of a button in the software).

    Hope that helps.

    The easiest way is to go into manual mode from itunes. Now you can go into "My Computers" and a drive should be their with your Ipod. Now you have to view invisible folders.

    first go up to the top and click tools.
    then go into folder options
    then view
    then check the one that says show hidden files.

    now go into the drive with your ipod and into the hidden folders(should look faded)
    and then you should see music files in the end. Just drag and drop
