sometimes devices connected to the computer specially mp3/mp4 players and it's files can be viewed using windows explorer.
The Computer reads it as a removable storage device.
I havent use ipod yet but i have creative player and i can view the music saved on it by using windows explorer. Without isntaling any software on my computer i can add music and copy from computer to mp3/mp4 player and vice versa.

Check if your computer can view the files in your ipod by going to.

MY COMPUTER > check removable devices > see if there is a removable storage there it could be drive F: > if you double click
that drive you are gonna see the files that are stored in your ipod. Look for the folder where your musics are saved and you can copy it from
your ipod and paste it to one of the folders in the computer. . hope this helps. :)

Unfortunately, this doesn't work for Apple devices, such as the iPod. :) Apple has ensured that you must use their methods and software to do pretty much anything with their hardware.

Windbell, have you tried uninstall iTunes, and then downloading and reinstalling it?

I appreciate that you tried to help this user. However, if you have no experience with a specific product, you might want to just read other replies in the future... so that you can learn about them. :)

If the songs were purchased through the iTunes Store, you should be able to just simply login to your account and retrieve your purchased items, Have you ever been prompted to backup your iTunes libary? If so try going into the iTunes folder under My Computer > C: Drive > Programs > iTunes and see if there is a backup file present. If not connecting your iPod touch through iTunes should really transfer the music you have on your iTune touch to your computer.

Hope this helps,

Mike
