Many iPod users may come up with the similar problems. When a new iPod is released, some iPod users choose to update their old iPods to the new iPods. But the songs remain in the old ones. So users have to transfer music from the old iPod to new iPod with iTunes or download all the songs again from iTunes Store. Speaking of iTunes, users can actually rely on the software to transfer music. If you have music backups of the old iPod in iTunes, you can easily sync the songs with the new iPod. If you don’t have backups, you can transfer purchased songs from the old iPod to iTunes using the “Transfer Purchases” function of iTunes. But you won’t be allowed to transfer the songs from the old iPod to computer or new iPod if the songs were not purchased from iTunes. The following simple guidance is for transferring music from the old iPod to the new iPod with the “Transfer Purchases” function of iTunes:
Plug the Old iPod into computer via the USB cable. Then launch iTunes.
Click “File > Device > Transfer Purchases”. iTunes will automatically transfer the songs to iTunes library.
Plug the new iPod into computer. Then import the songs from iTunes to the new iPod.
It is easy for you to transfer the purchased songs from the old iPod to the new one. But if you want to move the whole music library between iPods, you’d better not use iTunes. I recommend you an easy-to-use iPod transfer tool called Leawo iTransfer. This software will help you to transfer music from old iPod to new iPod with ease.
