I need to reformat my hard drive. I have all my music on my Ipod and want to download the songs to my hard drive after I reformat my computer.

Based on what I have read here, all I need to do is show hidden files and folders, connect ipod, download the contents of one of the folders where the files are like "FFF..".

Q: How do I then get them into itunes and how are they named? How does it know what the files are?

Another way, I am gathering, is to install PodUtil 2.5, connect my ipod, and then download all the music off the ipod. Is that correct? If so, this sounds like a much easier way.

Please advise as I have the 40GB iPod.
