    The right click on the song does not bring up the options that you have - any suggestions? I am using Windows 10 and Itunes 12.5.1.22

    Thx. Worked perfectly for my gf. Though having to do it one one does suck. This way DOES WORK and it's FREE.

    Sharepod for windows was what I used to transfer my iPod classic music to my computer - this means I now have a local backup of my own CD collection and music purchased from iTunes. An unregistered version of sharepod allows you to transfer 50 tracks at a time, and then asks you to register and wait 30 seconds before transferring the next 50.

    I decided to pay ~$30 AUD for the convenience of transferring ALL 140GB of my music with metadata in one click.

    It's unfortunate that this tutorial was ridiculous and useless and a waste of time for you. I thought it was great and it easily solved an issue I was having. I'm sure that if you looked hard enough you could find Mac instructions somewhere. The internet is big, there's a lot of information out there.

    All my songs are protected. Is there a way I can get around that?

    Kudos to you. It works great, is clear, and is easy. Thanks much. One question: Do I need to change my "import settings" box back to AAC to ensure that everything happens in the usual way in the future when I am just importing files from a store-bought CD into my ITunes library?

    What happens if there is no header on top of the iTunes to where I can click on file and such? Without it I can not convert to mp3. It is starting to piss me off!!!!
