Without an iPod Rip/Transfer Application:
Here's a way to quickly get files off a PC iPod without any extra software.
Plug your iPod or iPhone into your computer.
From the Desktop, go to My Computer and find the iPod
(usually designated by a drive letter. i e. E: or F:) Open it
Go to Tools > Folder Options > View (the tab) > scroll to Show Hidden Files and Folders and click it.
Go back to your iPod folder/drive, there you will find a new folder called iPod_Control
The Music folder in it will have a bunch of folders named F00, F01 and so on. (usually three folders)
THEY HAVE YOUR MP3s AND VIDEOS. Look through the folders to find your stuff.
Note: These files are renamed to something you may not recognize, so to know the name of the song, view the ID3 tags of the file.
You can also use the Search utility in Windows and search for a particular file on your iPod. Make sure you specify to search in Hidden Files or Folders. This solution requires no extra software, just some Creative thinking!
