iPodRip now supports the iPhone and iPod Touch! We've also fixed the crash (on 10.4) that the reviewer below mentioned. All in all, iPodRip version 1.1 is faster and entirely more stable. We're working hard to make it the best ripper app out there!

Has been working fine on my other iDevices, but doesn't seem to work on my iPhone 5 - could be an iOS6 problem?

Works as advertised but it is way to expensive! There are other similar tools doing the same for free or less money.

I downloaded ipodrip on Sep. 11, 2009 and used it once. Now I would like to use my $20 program again and I find out it is too old and the update is $10?? Are you kidding me??? Since when are people CHARGED for updates for software they already purchased? This is ridiculous. I like your program but it is misleading to sell software without telling people that updates will cost extra... considering software needs to be updated all the time. I am disappointed.

Nice program! Works very well, except for one small bug... any tracks with a 4-star rating import into iTunes as 3-stars

You should always link it to the libcrypto library alias when compiling, not to the version library itself ... You get an error if i dont have the same version: "dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libcrypto.0.9.8.dylib" ;) Intel, 10.5.8

I recently owned this program, but got a new hard-drive installed because mine wasn't functioning properly. Apple said it wasn't my fault, and that they have had this issue quite a few times with my particular model. But, now I don't have this program, and I use it quite often, as I have 2 different ipods that I transfer songs between. I currently have a new bank account, and do not know the numbers of the previous one used, but is it possible to re-download it? or do I have to buy it all over again..

I heard good story about this application and the one that I knew before - iPod Access. Does anyone knows what are the different between this two if any? I just want to use one instead of both... I do get some 'Honesty' dialog box after entering legitimate license that I have. The Dev tried to solve it but to no avail. No big issues though, just slight annoyed.

Just goes to show what hypocritical thugs Apple and Steve Jobs are that they forced a small developer to relinquish a name they had for over 6 years without problems. This is the same organisation that twice stole the Apple brand from the Beatles.

Hi, all iPhone 3GS and iPod Touches are fully supported. We also have a new version coming out shortly with a new backend, which will mean a more stable and fast product.

Although it did not work with my iPhone it works great with my iPod Classic and iPod Mini. Clean and simple user-interface and does the job nicely. Four stars (not five because it does not work with Iphone 3GS)

Great program. I've used it with my older iPod Touch, my new jailbroken iPhone 3GS, iPod video, my friend's iPod video, other friend's iPod nano, my roommates iPod shuffle... and, well, you get the idea. It worked flawlessly with all of them. Highly recommend this program to anyone who needs to recover their music!

If you've not yet decided whether to buy iPodRip or if you're having trouble deciding between different iPod-to-Mac software, let me assure you iPodRip is a very well made product. It's easy and intuitive to use, and its shortcomings are few. I would love to see this software support photo recovery and some version of the 'diff' function to just import the songs I'm missing. While this application is not feature rich, I believe it is better for it. It gets the job done, and it does it well. To the developer: Why was the Family Pack box checked by default when I went to check out? It shouldn't be.

Looks like a promising piece of software but I have the following problems with it: • It hangs while it scans my iPod, it should probably give feedback on progress. • Occasionally crashes during import. • Songs rated at 3 Stars, turn into 2 stars when imported.

iPod Rip is great! My iTunes library exploded on me and I was worried that I had lost all my music but it pulled it all off automatically without any hassle. I didn't even have to read the instructions!

To clarify, iPodRip is now under new management. The Little App Factory has been very gracious in helping transition the application over to Happy Hour Code, LLC. If you have any problems with the new version, please don't hesitate to write us an email!

After using Senuti for over two years, I decided to try iPodRip and got the "No Songs Found to Display" error upon startup. Has anyone found a solution? My mp3s and iTunes library are stored on an external drive. I don't see how but could this be an issue? I don't really have any way of moving my library onto my computer's native drive.

I've used iPod rip a lot in the last year or so, as well as recommended it to lots of people. Unfortunately, their tech/customer support seems to have really gone off a cliff. For the past two weeks, I have tried repeatedly to get a new serial number to unlock my version iPodrip. Not only have I not received a serial number (I bought a copy last year), I haven't received a reply to numerous messages and emails. Too bad, used to be a great product.

I purchased iPodRip 3.7 a while ago. I never updated it because the update notification did not work, and I didn't need to anyway. When iTunes 7x came out, this version stopped working. I downloaded the 3.9x version several times, and each time, v3.9x fails to launch with the message "AFRegistration error AFRegistration failed with message: (012) One or more of the registration files are missing." I have e-mailed the developers several times about this, & gotten no response. So much for this code being "Free for purchasers of earlier versions" I am very disappointed with these people, and I won't be suckered into buying any other programs they wrote.

Unfortunately, I have also run into the same issues as other users on MacUpdate . . . "No Songs Found to Display". And, unfortunately, the developer has dropped off the planet. I submit support requests weekly, but have never heard anything back (you'd think I'd learn and stop submitting them - but now it's personal!).

ipodrip no longer sees the content of my ipod, which is strange because i have been using it for a number of years now with no issues. i believed at first this was due to itunes 7, a rather unsavoury product ( but a necessary evil ), but now i feel it is a combination of both itunes and ipodrip; since senuti, el ipodo, ollie's ipod extractor, and three other ipod utilities see the contents of my ipod. but none of those products can recover my ipod properly or possess the feature set of ipodrip i have grown accustomed to. i hope the developer can rectify the situation soon or at least reply to support emails.

April 28 2007. I have had exactly the same problems as others have reported. iPodRip (that I paid for) comes up with "No songs found to display" upon launching, which is all the more annoying in that iTunes sees them just fine. I too emailed support but haven't heard from them yet. I just upgraded to the newest version of iTunes and applied the 1.1.2 upgrade to my second gen. Nano iPod: could this be the cause of the problems ... ? Hard to know when their support persons seems to have taken permanent leave ! In sum: think twice before paying for this software.

I purchased Ipodrip last Feb 2006. I loved its features and ease of use. I also liked the feature that would allow you to see what songs were already in your Itunes compared to those that were not. However in the last week I have had some trouble using Ipodrip, I updated. Same problem. It seems that the application is having a hard time reading the contents of the Ipod. I sent them an email on their site but nobody has responded and its been almost a week. I fear that I may be in the market for a new Ipod ripping software.

I have tried a number of programmes to move iPod song to a mac and have been frustrated by complicated or vague instructions or, things just not working as promised. I tried this programme and it is perfect for me, simple to use, efficient and effective. Best of all, the contents of both the iPod and iTunes appear within the same overall window, and individual songs and/or playlists can be simply dragged from the iPod to the iTunes section of the window.

Does what it advertises. Latest version however won't accept my serial number anymore even though I payed for one. I contacted support a while back and I'm still waiting for a response! This does not make me a happy customer.

Read many reviews online of various programs and decided to try this one out (very reluctantly). The results were so good that I felt compelled to post my first ever user review online. In less than three hours, this program restored my entire ipod contents (1644 songs, 4.8 GB of music) to my Power Book G4 running system 10.4.7 and iTunes 6.0. All playlists and songs appear to be completely intact. This just saved me an unbelievable amount of work to reimport all my CD's and reorganize them. My computer crashed and I had to start over from scratch. I did not have a backup of my iTunes library or playlists. I blame Apple for not having a way to restore from ipod back to Mac because these things can happen. Thank goodness for this program. I was skeptical from some of the reviews I read, but I tried it and it worked great for me! One tip: try dragging one playlist from ipod to itunes first to be sure it works properly, then do the complete ipod restore if that's what you need.

Fantastic! After my iBook's hard drive packed up this app got me out of a hole. It backed up all of my 500+ mp3 files. Tranfer rate wasn't lightning, but was reasonably quick. Used with iBook G4, 4th gen iPod (monochrome screen), iTunes 6.0.2. Transfer via USB cable.

I wiped out my entire iTunes library -- 10,154 songs -- from the external hard drive I was storing it on, due to a bonehead mistake. iPodRip managed to transfer all but 91 of those 10,154 songs from my iPod onto my new iMac G5, and kept all the original metadata / song ratings / play counts intact! Genius. It was also completely stable and ran smoothly and (reasonably) quickly -- the whole process took about nine hours but hey, that's a lot of songs. (For what it's worth, the equipment involved: 60GB 4th gen color iPod, iTunes 5, Mac OS X 10.4.2, 2GHz iMac G5 w/ 512MB RAM, Firewire connection.) Totally recommended, and I may cough up the shareware price just to keep it around.

WOW! I needed to transfer all of my songs from my iPod to my new mac computer (iPod was windows formatted and I wanted to reformat for Mac without losing all my songs), and iPodRip did it beautifully! all 3100 songs, perfect transferred to iTunes, including all the playlists, play counts, and all the other settings of the iPod! Great product!

This program has a lot of potential, and is packed with features compared to the other ipod rippers out there. The interface is fairly well thought out, and is not just a window and a couple of buttons like many other similar applications. The UI is very nice. While I've never been a fan of the brushed steel motif (I think it goes against Apple's original usability guidelines), it is consistent with the OS, and this app does a good job. Everything is well laid-out, and there's a lot of detail here, but it is not cluttered. However, and here is its real downfall, it is not a very stable application. Every time I've used it to transfer songs to my iTunes Library, it crashes. (OS 10.4.2, iTunes 4.9) I don't think it likes to copy more than a few hundred songs at a time, as it seems to be more stable in that instance. Of course, every time it crashes reduces my trial period. One other thing I don't like about the program is that the UI feedback when you copy could be better. Many times it seems like the progress bar isn't moving at all, and you aren't sure if it has frozen or not. It would be useful to provide more granular information about the copying progress. So, although iPodRip is definitely the most feature-packed and usable of the ipod ripping applications out there, frankly I would not spend money to purchase this product until it becomes less crash-prone. If this product were stable, it would be worth the $15 shareware fee the author requests. But right now I want something that doesn't blow up when I ask it to perform its main function.
