What is Music Rescue for Mac

Note: Music Rescue is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

Music Rescue... Your music library is precious. It contains all those memories of your youth or that first dance. With an iPod, it helps you work out, keeps you company when you drive and drowns out that noisy train ride into the city. Unfortunately, your music library is fragile. If your computer dies and takes your music with it, you still have your iPod, right? However, iTunes only lets you transfer tracks bought from the iTunes Store back to your new/fixed computer. What about those tracks ripped from CD, or lovingly recorded from your vinyl collection?

Enter Music Rescue - the answer to your nightmare. Music Rescue will copy your music, video, podcasts, audiobooks, audio recordings and notes right back to where they came from, be it iTunes, a custom media server or anything else.

Note: Music Rescue does not modify your music in any way, including DRM-encoded tracks from the iTunes Music Store. You'll still need to authorize your computer to play them.

Features at-a-glance:

  • Copies media from an iPod to your computer.
  • Adds tracks to iTunes and rebuilds playlists.
  • Supports all current iPods, including iPhone.
  • Compares iPod contents to local iTunes library.
  • Simple recovery of all media on your iPod.

Nice utility. But for those of you who (like me) object to Internet-based activation...be aware that this application indeed uses it. I find it objectionable that the developer does not even let us know on his web page. This has caused me to not register the license I purchased. I plan to replace my computer in a couple of months, and nothing on the web site tells how to transfer a license to a new machine.

When it was PodUtil it was freeware but it works like a gem, preserves all the data in the transfer, DOES work through firewire, and is a nifty lettle app.

Well, I've been using iPod Rip for some time now (wow, like 4 years almost...) and is really good app. Let's try this one but I'm not sure if it can beat the iPod Rip...

How many "iPod rescue" apps exist now? Aren't many of them free?

Bleh, a bloated RealBasic app which seems to be all spit and no polish. My instincts tell me to stay away from this one. I've used PodWorks for years and have been very happy with it--I'll stick with that.

Looks very nice. Has some features that similar applications don't. I don't know of any that allow you to search for contacts from your iPod.

Excellent utility but this new version still doesn't support tracks names containing accented characters (i.e. é, ö etc.) For example, télépopmusik appears as just "T" in the MP3 list window and Röyksopp appears as "R"...

My iPod has a bigger capacity drive than my G4 so until recently I could never fit all my mp3's on there. I've just got a LaCie 120gb external and so now using this I have been able to put all the music from the ipod back onto the computer. It works great!

I did a major 'Whoops" by disconnecting my iPod from my G4 Powerbook (running latest version of OSX) without first completely shutting down the PB, or dismounting the iPod. So the Firewire alert notice was blasted on my screen, which is probably why my PB was hung when I went to power back on. The first level Directory on my iPod showed nada = over 850 files gone out of my playlist. Tried Norton's on my iPod from OS 9, and it saw all my files. However, no way to recover, copy, reinstall the firmware on the iPod, iTunes crashes every time I connected the iPod. Still came up on my screen as a real drive, but basically useless. So I tried PodUtil 1.0b4. Not only did it allow me to see all my files on my iPod and copy them to my hard drive on my G4, but it was a great utility for organising and preparing for iTuens to copy back in. Excellent program and a "must have" utility for iPod users who live and die on the thing. also the editor on the Contact list looks really interesting.
