iPod tracks -> Desktop for Mac2.2

16 September 2006

Easy retrieval of iPod tracks from iTunes.

What is iPod tracks -> Desktop for Mac

iPod tracks -> Desktop is a set of scripts that allow an easy retrieve of iPod tracks directly from iTunes.

The script "iPod tracks -> Desktop" is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will copy the selected tracks in iTunes (not Playlists) on you Desktop, easily.
If a file with the same name already exists in the destination then the user will be prompted.
The way I found to get tracks copied is my small hack, due to this the script has been saved run-only. Sorry.

The script "iPod tracks -> Choose..." is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will perform the same action than the previous, but will let you choose in which folder you want to copy the tracks selected in iTunes.

The script "iPod tracks -> encode" is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will convert the iPod selected track(s) according to the current iTunes conversion preferences, adding them to iTunes main library.
In addition, this script is the only that can retrieve WAV files: you can select such tracks on the iPod, then convert them to a more convenient format :)

The script "iPod tracks -> iTunes Library" is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will add the iPod selected track(s) in iTunes main library, and to a library named according to iPod's name. If iTunes preferences are set to copy files as they are added to the library, then files will be phisically copied in iTunes Music folder.

The script "iPod tracks (Prefs)" is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will set up some preferences for the scripts listed above.

The script "Whole iPod Library -> Desktop" is installed in iTunes script menu.
This script will copy the entire iPod library to the desktop, regardless of its internal organization in subfolders. The copy could take a long time, in any case the user can stop it with the usual Command-. keystroke.

This product worked very well for me with iTunes 6.0.4 and Mac OS 10.4.5. Using the scripts is quite easy -- just select the tracks you want and go! There are so many stupid iPod "retrieval" apps out there that merely show you the cryptically named folders directly on your iPod -- which is totally useless unless you just want everything. This lets you browse the music using iTunes, then copy. Perfect.

Wow this is excellent! Incase the description wasn't clear (it wasn't for me), it installs several scripts in the iTunes menu, which you can then use for various iPod-related tasks, including ripping songs to your library and so on.
