no, its stuff ive added from cd's. (some of which i dont have anymore)

Expert:  John T. F. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, While there are a number of options to get purchased music off the device, Apple offers absolutely no official way of retrieving songs you've ripped yourself. However, luckily, there are 3rd party utilities that can copy music directly off an iPod. SharePod may be the easiest utility for you: http://www.getsharepod.com/ Download and install SharePod on the computer. Once you have the above installed, connect your iPod to the computer. If iTunes starts, quit it. Start SharePod. They actually have a fairly decent set of instructions at the following link. http://www.getsharepod.com/help/how-to-transfer-music-from-iphone/ Once you are finished copying them from the device, quit SharePod and then disconnect your Apple device from the computer. Start iTunes and verify all music is there. Find a song that was imported from the device and make sure you can play it. If it looks complete, you should be all set.John
