Avanquest TransferMy Music SoftwareMakaveli - April 30, 2007
To correctly install this program, I unplugged my iPod just to ensure nothing would get corrupted. Insert the installation CD and follow the on screen instructions to completely install the TransferMy Music program.
When I first double-clicked the icon to open TransferMy Music, I got a bit of a shock. I saw the screen below and I freaked out about losing 14.75 GB of music to this program. I made sure I selected “Temporarily disable iTunes ability to detect your iPod”.
The next thing you must do is enter in your serial number provided on the back of the CD case.
The program opens iTunes when it starts up and detects if you have auto-update on or not. I always do, so it asks me to hold the Shift + Ctrl keys when I connect my iPod. My iPod wasn’t connected, so I pressed “Ok” because I wanted to see the program before I connected my iPod. I was shot back at with the error displayed on the right screenshot. I’m not very ecstatic about the iPod having to be fully charged because when I’m on-the-go my iPod is rarely fully charged.
If you get this error, connect your iPod and hold the Shift + Ctrl keys and everything should work. The screenshot below displays the program when you first open it. It is displaying all of the information about my iPod.
You can easily see your music list when you clicked the respective tab on the left-hand side. I like the filters on the top for artist, song, and album because it makes it very easy to navigate to find the songs I need to change.
The next tab is “Playlist Transfer” which shows all of your playlists. To transfer the playlists to iTunes, all you have to do is select the desired playlist(s) and click the “Transfer Playlists” on the upper left-hand tool bar, which I highlighted in red.
The “Text Library” tab is where you can make notes or contacts to be stored on your iPod. Too add a note, click “Add” on the upper left-hand tool bar and type in your message, select category, and save.
