A buddy gave me an iPod Classic( he changed his mind and wanted a Touch instead) that he has synched to his iTunes via PC with about 40 GB of music on it. Is there a way that I can:

1) pull this music off the iPod, convert it to mac/Apple format store on a hard drive, then..

2) Open a separate iTunes library for just this iPod, to keep separate from the library I use for my nano, iPhone and iPad? Would like to use our iMac for this, Not the MacBookAir I currently use.

3) synch and set new iPod as mine in separate library then reload the music?

I basically don't want to lose the music and be able to add/use it without having to synch it to his computer.

Thank you! One other question. If music was loaded on a PC but is going to be pulled off iPod and re-installed on a Mac do I use Mac one to remove and copy or PC version then try to convert to Mac iTunes, or doesn't make a difference?
Sorry, techno challenged. :)

Moving from PC to Mac to PC -- doesn't matter. If they are MP3 files, you'll be good.
