Hi there. Laptop broke with synced iPod on it. iTunes on my desktop will not sync with iPod. It will only allow me to backup purchased tunes only, and then only via the Apple store. How on earth can I back up my thousands of songs now? Any help greatly appreciated.

If you have a PC look for a free program called Sharepod. It lets you pull all your music off the device and store it on you computer, so you can then put it back into an iTunes library and sync it to your device.

Roof monkey thanks very much. I'll try that. I'm scared of downloading free software in case of malware or even worse being installed too.
