Editors' Review

Apple makes extracting your music from your iPod unnecessarily difficult, which is where SharePod comes in. This fast freeware tool efficiently transfers your music collection to your hard drive, making it easy to back up or restore your music, videos, and photos. It also transfers playlists, album art, and ratings, both to your hard drive and directly into iTunes.

SharePod comes with features that many competitors lack. Not only can you transfer your files, you can also perform some basic editing. You can use it to delete art, playlists, music, and videos from your iPod, edit tags, and you can also transfer from your computer to your iPod without having to use iTunes. When you copy, you can set the folder architecture to one of three defaults, or customize your own. One key feature of SharePod is that it comes with a database backup, so if something goes awry during the transfer process, it's a simple procedure to restore it.

The program comes in an archive, not a self-extracting EXE file. The EXE file is tiny, however, weighing in at just 5.4MB, so it's small enough to carry around on your iPod. SharePod is surprisingly effective. In transferring more than 7,000 songs and their accompanying artwork, playlists, and ratings, SharePod only freaked out on two dozen tracks. Notably, it doesn't stop copying, instead logging which files copy successfully and which don't. Given how hassle-free it is and how good it is at what it does, it's hard not to consider SharePod a must-have.
