This Instructable is for Mac users. If you run Windows, just launch Windows Explorer (the file manager thingy) and maneuver to the iPod_Control and Music folders to do the same work.

IF you don't know how to launch Windows Explorer (there are many ways) just RIGHT-click on the Start Button and left-click on Explore. Maneuver your way in the left pane to the drive letter that represents your iPod.

An easier way to backup your stuff is to copy sharepod to your ipod, run it, and click the backup button. Then you get all your files in a correctly named folder structure and file names.
