kPod (Kris' iPod utility) is a utility to copy songs from an iPod to your harddisk.
Successful restored 3950 songs from a 30GB 3G iPod to a 10.4.1 machine with iTunes 4.8. Yay!
KPod seems to be idiot proof even for me! This worked quickly and easily and transferred 1,000 songs in a heartbeat with a few simple mouse clicks.
Kudos on a really user friendly program that gets the job done efficiently.
The author's site is down. Can anyone email me the file?
(give valid reasons to backup your claims)where can i find the program right now (march 2005) ?
Hi anonymous posters,
What troubleshooting program?
It is true the site has been down a while, but it's back up. the uri has changed though and i've been unable or just too lazy to make the old url work or change it in macupdate. the more info link will get you to the file, or you can download it here: http://www.theredhead.nl:81/downloads/antiques/kPod.dmg.gz (no guarantee it won't change again though)
It is likely that kPod will remain just an antique kept online for archival purposes since my ipod died on me a long time ago and as such i have no means of testing it properly. Besides, Senuti is much better these days and also free. You can get Senuti here:http://wbyoung.ambitiouslemon.com/senuti/
This program is the best freeware version of extraction from the iPod that I've found. It offered everything I needed, including the ability to move any number of tracks at once (as small as only one at a time to as much as all of them). Note that when you select all the songs at once [apple]+[A], you can't hit export until you highlight at least one of the songs. BUT IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY. Didn't crash. kPod kicks ass!
I only wish that the program exported all files into Artist/Album subfolders automatically; however no freeware apps do that. As it stands, you must use iTunes to reorganize the folders. I do appreciate the fact that this program doesn't force the transfer into my iTunes library automatically. I hate that.
Great job on kPod.
It's real good!
I would NOT recommend that anyone download this software. I did and not only could I not find the program after it was downloaded, but now my computer is behaving strangely. Things like shrinking menu bars and the like which make me suspect that either this program is a virus or it carries one, and I have found no way to contact the creator. It all seems pretty sketchy to me. Stay away!
Well, i can't actually guarantee that what i've put up on my server does not contain a server, but it's highly unlikely.
Anyway, if you were unable to find the file you downloaded (which is a user/browser issue), it seems likely to me that you have screwed up your computer all by yourself.
You being unable to get in touch with me also raises some questions here, there's a reference to my website in the about box of kPod, and the readme file included, and you can email me from my website.
kPod (Kris' iPod utility) is a free solution for those people who have removed songs from iTunes that are still on their iPod. This little application can export any number of songs from an iPod to anywhere on your harddisk.
I'm looking forward to hear from users.
Dutch version coming soon
