Download Tracks from iPod to PC with SharePod

SharePod is very cool indeed. You can download tracks from your iPod to your PC, maintaining filenames (which are configurable). That means you can make a backup of your iPod.

Personally, I find ripping CDs is a bit hit and miss as far as ID3s are concerned (because CDDB info is usually a bit slack). Now, I can rip CDs, listen to them, and over time get the ID3s sorted out (on the iPod) and then transfer the files back to the PC as a backup and for use at home with SlimServer.

Yeah,? I use FreeDB with Grip (and then gtkPod). iTunes uses GraceNote. I find that both have pointless Genre info, and frequently stupid artist or album names. iTunes annoys me because compilations usually have the individual track artists in the "artist" field. I suspect that's actually the best way to do it, but it assumes the "composer" has been filled in on all your CDs - most arn't.

So what ever you do, you lose. I've been getting most things about straight and then sticking them on the iPod. gtkPod is *much* better for editing ID3 information that iTunes, so over time I'm getting them straightened out with that.
