Hi there,

Thanks everyone in advance for helping out.

My sister gave me her IPOD mini with over 900 songs in it and there is very little room left in the mini. I was trying to save the 900 songs on computer, but I ran into trouble. I want to say that I am computer literate, but have never used itune and/or ipod till today. :-) The 900 songs can be played on mini just fine, but windows xp pro doesn't recognize the drive. When I click on the drive (in windows explorer), it says that the storage device isn't formatted. When I hook up to itune, it says that I need to update the ipod mini using an utility. That will erase all songs in my mini. I tried to download anapod software, but it won't work until windows recognize the ipod as a formatted storage unit.

How can I keep (copy) these songs back to pc?
