    Your IPOD should show up under my computer as a drive. From there you can copy the music to and from the device.

    Have you tried Ephpod? I used it a while back to move files from my brothers ipod to a computer.

    Also I'm not sure if they still make Mac OS iPods, from Gen3 I haven't seen new iPods with OS restrictions, you  probaly can't see hidden files in your file manager, that's why you can't see the contens of the iPod.

    Depends on the iPod.

    If it is an iPod Touch, iPhone or 4th Generation iPod Nano, you cannot use disk mode like the older iPods.

    There is an article here on how to get files off an iPod Touch and/or iPhone with this issue:
