Another way to restore music from iPod

I mentioned SharePod awhile back. Nice to know that there’s another alternative – and it supports Macs, too. Meet PodUtil. (Golf clap: Matt File)

  4. Man, you can just enable ‘show hidden files’ in the file explorer, then browse the iPod folders and you will find your music.

    The only issue is that the music filenames are wack — but with a bit of sifting, you can find what you need.
