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?

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.

Hi,

Thanks for your concern. While Music Rescue does check with our server to make sure the license you entered is valid, the license doesn't then get tied to the computer you're on. To transfer a license to a new computer, simple delete Music Rescue from your old machine and enter your serial number on the new one.

If you don't want Music Rescue sending your serial number back to our servers, you can contact support to do an "offline" check.

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!

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.
