Okay, here's my issue.

My old computer recently died, and I want to copy all my music from my iPod to my computer. I've done this before using ephPod, however it didn't seem to work this time.

Does anyone know a free program that could do this? I've googled extensively, but I can't find anything that's free (not a trial) and works.

Doesn't iTunes do this? – RedGrittyBrick Mar 25 '12 at 10:24
@RedGrittyBrick iTunes will promptly erase the iPod if it is not in the computer. – HackToHell Mar 25 '12 at 10:29
That or any of the free and/or open source alternatives like Songbird, Rhythmbox, gtkpod, Floola, Banshee, Amarok, Winamp, YamiPod, etc. – Lèse majesté Mar 25 '12 at 10:33

Use iTunes and sync it using this method so that you do not lose your files.
