Editors' Review

If you are looking for a third-party application to back up your iPod music library to Mac OS X, xPort may be an option to consider. It detects your iPod as soon as you plug it in, and presents you with two powerful buttons aimed at saving your favorite music. The only downside is that it works only with the iPod, and not other Apple products.

When you launch xPort, you're greeted by a clean, easy-to-understand interface. As soon as you see the iPod's audio content, xPort gives you several ways for content backup: you can select the songs you wish to save by selecting them one by one, or (and this is what we liked) there is an option to see the whole music library organized by Title, Artist, and Album, just like you are used to in iTunes. When you have all these selected -- this can be achieved in no time -- the fun begins. Simply press the Export button and you'll have all the information you put into that library, such as ratings, play counts, and date last played, plus any artwork, saved onto your Mac computer.

During our testing, xPort worked very well. We were pleased with how easy, and fast, we sent 40GB of music to our desktop. You will have to make sure to put your iPod into disk-use mode for the application to recognize it, but this was an easy step to remember. We were a bit surprised that xPort isn't compatible with the iPod Touch, iPad, or iPhone, but that was the only downside we found with this handy app.

Although we were surprised to discover its compatibility limits, xPort's easy-to-understand interface can help anyone quickly save data from an iPod to a Mac.

"My windows computer crashed - this and my mac saved me"

October 29, 2013  |  By tiagovar

 |  Version: xPort 1.10

Pros

My iTunes music library is vast and after my Windows XP computer crashed completely without repair, I was left with my old Mac and an empty iTunes there.

The only line of hope was my ipod which still contained my entire music collection. xPort transferred back all my ipod songs to my mac iTunes for free.

Cons

import of tracks is manually done after backing up ipod with xport

 |  Version: xPort 1.10

Pros

ipod classic with 111 GB of songs - transferred perfectly to my Mac

Cons

n/a here to say

Summary

I am a longtime copytrans user but since copytrans is only available for PC, I contacted Support and they advised me to use this instead for Mac. I liked it as it is free and above all it works.

"Amazing, it makes copying videos on ipad to Mac so easy"

August 27, 2013  |  By RoizRy

 |  Version: xPort 1.10

Pros

Just can't believe it! it is so easy to transfer all videos i've downloaded on my ipad to my mac computer

Cons

it's good to transfer music and videos, but it can't delete photos from my iPhone camera roll because it doesn't support iOS 6 now. why? hope the you can fix this soon

Summary

it seems this mac version has less features than the windows version. i just ditched my pc for an imac, hoping the next version will be as powerful as the windows version. http://software.bigbigsoft.com/ipod-to-mac-transfer

"Worked like a charm"

June 08, 2013  |  By ratterstinkle

 |  Version: xPort 1.10

Pros

1. Free
2. Did exactly what it said it would

Cons

None so far

Summary

My wife and I searched for a free program to transfer her old iPod songs to her computer and ran into a lot of programs that either didn't work or were not free. This is a very basic program that allows you to save the music on your iPod (not iPhone or iPad: read the description of the program before you say it doesn't work). Will use it again if needed.
