Using your iPod as a backup for your music

Wouldn't it be great if your iPod, which already holds all your music, could be used as a backup for your music? Hard drive failure happen and we must be backed up because you'll simply loose the music you bought on the iTunes Store otherwise. One of the limitations of the iPod is that you cannot copy music from your iPod to your computer. This was done to reduce piracy but it is also a big limiting factor. Luckily a developer created a great freeware to solve this problem called iPod Disk. It's very easy to use: when your iPod is hooked up, load iPod Disk and boom it mounts a disk on you desktop with all your music. You can easily copy your music back to your computer. Just drag and drop! The only disadvantage is it's not universal but it runs very well anyway under Rosetta. There are no noticeable slowdowns on an intel Mac. I suggest you check it out at :
