Exclamation transfer songs off your iPod to a PC

The free iDump will do this and it is easy to use
[Thanks to keroffs ]
This program is freeware

What is iDump
This program will allow you transfer your songs off your iPod to a PC, iDump does come wrapped in installer but you can simply drop the .exe in the root directory on your iPod and run it from there.

Connect you iPod and run iDump and you'll have access to all your songs, select the songs you want to transfer then pick a destination directory and how you would like your songs to be named. And then sit back and transfer all the selected songs to the PC.

Tested OS

Supported iPods
All Models except the new Touch and iPhone


Output formatting

This gives you the option to select an output directory and the way the songs will be transferred.

Unattended Transfer

If you have the pleasure of owning one of the larger iPod's then this option is for you, Simply set the options for this feature and it will deal with common errors like what to do if a song already exist on the destination drive etc.

This does what most searches do, it searches!.

If you use playlists on your iPod then this gives you the option to select any of the playlists and display the song within the selected list only.

Export Playlists
This option will export all of your playlists in to the standard .m3u format.

Available Languages
English, German, Spanish.

Nice one. Its a good software, which does the job well. My brother has an iPod, and he uses iDump to make backup of his iPod.

Here are some more free tools to interact with iPod, and are capable iPod managers, like iTunes, and can be used to copy multimedia files from the iPod along with other features.

Floola :
YamiPod :
SharePod :
FroddlePod :
PodLift(Beta) :

All are freeware.

I haven't tried these softwares myself, coz I don't have an iPod. So, I don't really know how well they work.
Feel free to try them out, and please do share with me, the experience about these softwares. It will be useful for everyone.

I would recommend SharePod. I have used all of the above programs and I find that SharePod is the easiest and most fluent. I use iCloner occasionally to make backups of my iPod. I can restore them later, if need be.

That's great but the only helpful one for me was the first post.
The rest is a bunch of programs, which I would need to try one-by-one in order to find out what they do...
