I previously liked this so much and also used it weekly. Never failed on me.
But the new high price tag isn't worth buying. There are other free and much cheaper options.

A pity really.

Despite this new surprise on charging fee, the new Senuti icon also looks surprisingly hideous, compared to its original free version. No thanks, I'll keep use my free version!

I used to use this a lot. But it has become quite expensive and there are free alternatives that are as good. Also, possting updates without any release notes is quite uncourteous. Why not let your (paying) customers know, what all the great changes in the software have been about?

Previously always free but now a whopping $18

This app is good but paying for something that is also available for free is a no go-er for me.

My advice .. use any other free similar tool.

I've been using it for a long time, very good app. But I can't understand why there isn't a feature to import photos from an iPod? It seems odd.

Well you don't really need it - just use iPhoto (or an Windows equivalent) and import the photos that way. Senuti is designed to copy the music because it is otherwise quite difficult to do - copying photos is a piece of cake.

One word: GREAT

Seriously ... this is the only iPod ripper I trust fully. It works perfect.

And free is a bonus but I would pay for it.

Senuti was a great app (lol dont update, and the freeware versions are sure to be torrented)- The problem with charging for this is that- hey, IT'S NOT EVEN A 1.0 PRODUCT!.

I wont dipute whether a dev has the right to charge, but 18 bucks for an app that has been around a long time, and is far from finished is a bit of a stretch. It can still be an invaluable tool, cant take that from it- but this situation surely hasnt been handled too well.

I'm transferring songs from my iPod to my Mac and it looks like songs that were bought through iTunes can not be played unless I "unlock" them. Is there a way to get around this? I don't have access to my iTunes account anymore and can't unlock them. Help?

Tymon, I won't tell you the ole" "well you should have backed up and not erased anything until after installation, but that said, you can set your summary iTune page for your iPod to not auto synchronize, and on each individual category Pictures, Movies, Playlists, etc, you can make them all manual, where you pick the settings. Use either the back up command under the FILE menu to back up all your iTunes files after first consolidating them, under the ADVANCED menu. Senuti.
Key with Senuti is reliability, it will not lose any files, use the help menu to take each step to begin, backing up to the extra head drive and ALSO back up to DVD with the FILE menu backup. I am a cheerleader for this program. This is the best iPod retrieve utility and FREE.

I have a question about senuti... I recently bought an external HD to move my music onto but for some reason allot of the files didn't copy and I had already deleted the original from from my main HD. All the tracks still remain on my iPod, question is... Doesn't your iPod start to update as soon as you plug it in to the computer? If this starts happening and iTunes starts to replace the library on the iPod won't that cause all of the music to be lost? How do you stop iTunes from updating the iPod as soon as you plug it in? Thanks!

find where your songs are by clicking on the song in itunes, then hit " apple+I", as in Info. that will tell where your songs are hidden during the move. you can also look for double song entries by clicking View>duplicate songs and see if one file works and the other is 'ghosted'

Does Senuti only work with the computer that your ipod is synced to? i.e., can it be used to copy music from someone else's ipod? (Before you start saying this is illegal-- I have friends who have their own music that they wrote and recorded on their ipods, and they certainly have the right to distribute it if they want, and this seemed like an easy way to do it.) I plugged in a friend's ipod and when itunes asked me if I wanted to erase it and sync it to my computer I said no, and after that Senuti didn't show any files or work at all.

I got my iPod all plugged in (running an 80gb classic ipod with an iMacG5) and the options "enable disk use" and "manually manage music.." are checked and applied. Senuti loads up just fine - I see all my iTunes music, podcasts, and movies there. However, when I select the song and choose Transfer, i get a pop-up saying "Senuti was unable to copy the song

"Senuti was unable to copy the song "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing". An error occurred while trying to copy the file. If this continues to be an issue, please report it."

HELP!!

That means you should report it to the developer, at the developer's website. Not here.

Anyone have this problem? Download of Senuti to my PowerBook G4 went fine and it shows in the applications. But when I double click on it, it only shows briefly in the tool bar and disappears. I can't open it. Suggestions?

VeryCarla had trouble on 24 Feb 2008
I see that it doesn't like external libraries. I'm trying to merge two libraries, one on my 60gb internal drive and one on a 400gb external drive while keeping all the metadata (reviews, play counts, etc) intact. Since iTunes stupidly ignores this information, I've decided the easiest method is to use my iPod. And trust me, from what I've been able to tell, this is the easiest option. Senuti works fine if I'm copying from the iPod to the library on my internal drive, but not to the library on the external drive. It copies, but does not update the library at all.

Is this a bug, or is the expected behaviour? If it's a bug, I hope you can fix it. Thanks!

Easiest way to move your iTunes library, with metadata, is to use the Consolidate Library command: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301748
