How to Transfer Music from iPod to Computer with iTunes

As mentioned, you can also transfer music from iPod to iTunes in Windows 10. By doing so, you can transfer music from iPod to computer for free. However, compared with "transfer", using iTunes is more like "syncing" data between your iPod and computer. That means you can access your whole music library on all of your devices, including iPod,iPad,iPhone, Mac, and Windows PC. To do so, you need a network connection and to set up your devices correctly.

To transfer music from iPod to computer in Windows 10 with iTunes, you need to subscribe to Apple Music. If you have subscribed to Apple Music, you can sync your music library and music downloaded from Apple Music between your iPod and computer by turning on "Sync Library":

Step#1. Download the latest version of iOS on your iPod Touch and make sure you have the latest version of iTunes on your Windows 10 PC.

Step#2. Make sure you have signed in to your iPod Touch and Windows 10 computer (iTunes) with the same Apple ID.

Step#3. On your iPod Touch or other idevices, go to "Settings" > "Music" and turn on "Sync Music".

Step#4. On Windows 10, open iTunes and go to "Edit" > "Preferences" from the menu bar. Click the "General" tab and turn on "iCloud Music Library".

Step#5. Wait for iCloud to upload and sync your music library between your iPod and computer. When it has done, you can access the songs from your iPod on your Windows 10 PC.
