"Expense worth time saved"
20 bucks seems like a lot to me to do what Doug's AppleScripts will do for free (http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/scripts08.php). However, Doug says the scripts are not recommended for large-scale operations. I needed to back up my failing iPod, which has a number of issues when copying. iRip adds songs to a playlist as they are copied to iTunes and does not create extra copies of tracks outside iTunes' library. Because of this, iRip's process was the best of the apps I tried for all the manual error-checking I needed to do.
Sometimes would not create a playlist when using "Copy selected playlist to iTunes."
