in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited October 2014
1. Download and install "MacOpener & EphPod Bundle" from DataViz here.

2. Download and install "PodUtil" from here.

3. Shut down your machine.

4. Plug iPod into USB port with iPod USB cable.

5. Boot your PC.

6. Run PodUtil. It takes a long time to launch.

7. Find your iPod and copy files as desired.

The MacOpener trial version works for 15 days. Normal price is $50.

Be warned that unless you have an iPod Mini or a 4G iPod, your iPod will run out of battery quickly, as the USB port does not provide power to 3G iPods.
