iPod Access for Windows allows transferring songs from your iPod to your computer in an easy manner. It also supports transferring music and other files from PC to iPod and it works with many models of iPod: Nano, Shuffle and Mini.

The main advantage of iPod Access for Windows comes from the fact that it represents a lighter, handier and more convenient alternative to the ubiquitous iTunes, especially when it comes to performing simpler tasks such as copying only specific tracks between the iPod and the computer. Anyway, it will provide features that enhance the functionality of iTunes and it will even make it more secure, such as the possibility to block the automatic updates of iTunes or of the iPod (solving the known issue of Auto-Update mode that puts iPods in danger of having their content erased by iTunes). iPod Access can detect iPods that are in Auto-Update mode and let you switch to Manual Mode to avoid any unwanted problems.

Another thing that I like a lot about this application is that it can perform a check for duplicate songs and videos before adding them to iTunes. Playlist cloning, automatic file renaming and metadata preserving are also available.

Briefly, iPod Access for Windows is a handy tool that every iPod owner will surely appreciate as it makes transferring files a really easy task.
