Default Downloading music from Ipod to computer

How can I download my music files from my Ipod? My old computer died with all my music on it and no back up.

I have Itunes on my new computer but am afraid when I go to sync the Ipod to the computer, it will erase the songs that is on the Ipod. Any way around this??

Is the hard drive still working on the old one?? Or do you think it's still working???

What happened to the PC?

If so then go out and get (or look on google) for a hard drive (IDE or SATA) to USB interface, you then remove the old hard drive from the dead PC and dump you Itunes music folder to your documents folder.

You will have to go to the Itunes store and authorize the new computer to let it see the music.

Another way is to get a NAT backup drive and do the same thing, dump all your music files to it, then use it as the Itunes library.

Also if you go into the Itunes menus and set the "Sync" to manual, it should not erase your Ipod.
