You can't rip the songs off your ipod, though.

at least not with iTunes. I think there might be various third-party programs that will let you do that, although they're probably against all sorts of EULAs you accepted for iTunes and the iPod.

Not SO. ROb and I discovered that all the music on the Ipod is available in m4a's that you can grab off of it. You need to enable it as a disk storage device and make it so your comp can view hidden files and folders. Under ([X]:\iPod_Control\Music), you can find a bunch of folders with all the music. There seems to be no meta data or any real order to the music, but its there.

As a side note, I hate Ipods.

I cried when I saw this:



That is all.

well, kegan, when you bring that up, I remember seeing the files on my ipod. that's pretty funny, that they say you can't upload them, but all you have to do is view hidden files. it reminds me of pressing shift to stop autoplay of copyright-protected cds.

and ipods have become kinda big for djs, because they're a lot easier to carry around than a bunch of cds or vinyl. and if you put them into a machine like the one you posted, golly, they can be used much like regular dj equipment.

Heh, that reminds me when people would give the "advice" of pressing alt-f4 to fix random computer problems or to speed up the net.

You mean that doesn't work?!? Okay, plan B. Ctrl-Alt-Delete.



....Dammit!....

:p

ctrl-W.

and the best part of that one is that most people don't know it. well, at least fewer people know that then ctrl-alt-del or alt-F4

But wouldnt it be better if more people knew about Ctrl+Alt+Del, tragically 1337?s

Of course you could always tell people to hit Win + U and then strike s quickly. Wont work (or it shouldnt unless they're total idiot) if they see the Dialogue box tho.

That's exactly what I'm saying.



'Tis a sad, sad day.

There are also programs that do it without losing the meta data. I've never actually used any of them so I can't attest for how great they are but I hear about them occasionally
