Quick Start Tutorial

Copying Music and Video from your device to iTunes or Computer

Start with your iPod or iPhone disconnected from your computer and iTunes closed.

1. Download and Install TouchCopy.

2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop.

3. Connect your iPod to your computer.

4. If you have purchased TouchCopy, enter your activation code to access the full unrestricted version

TouchCopy may start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTunes will not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running. These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.

Copying Music into iTunes

You can now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want to select all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left and click on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar.

If you want to select a subset of your music collection to copy, browse your music using the Genre, Artist and Album lists and click the "Copy to iTunes" button to transfer your selection over to iTunes.

Note that if you're running the demonstration of TouchCopy you will be limited to 100 copies maximum.

Shutting Down TouchCopy

When you have finished using TouchCopy, close the TouchCopy window. If iTunes is open, TouchCopy will close iTunes. TouchCopy should then eject your iPod from your computer - unless disk mode was enabled before running it with TouchCopy. In which case you will have to use the normal method of ejecting mounted disk drives from your operating system.
