You could also go in with the Terminal. "ls -a" will show all folders, visible or otherwise.<br><br><br>

This applescript can be saved as either a script or application (whichever you prefer) ...it will allow you to browse and open invisible folders.<br><br>set theFolder to choose folder with invisibles<br>tell application "Finder"<br> open theFolder<br>end tell<br><br>also, as far as I am aware you can only copy .mp3s out of the invisible folder on your iPod. The AAC files are encrypted when they are sent to the disk and aren't actually "files" on the disk anymore ...could be wrong though<br><br>

This is true and this is what i was getting at .... the files also MUST be called WITH an extension .mp3 to even be copyable at all.<br><br>Even non DRMed AAC files cannot be copied from a PC formatted iPod to a Mac without a program like iPod ACCess which essentially clones the iPod drive bit for bit and the interprets the data as data to transfer.<br><br><br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM

Dude, you're wrong, plain and simple:<br><br><br><br>There's no encryption. There's nothing mysterious going on. They're just files inside folders flagged as invisible in the finder. Notice they're all AAC files.<br><br>If you want to see invisible files in the finder, type this in terminal:<br><br>defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles '1'<br><br>You can then just go in and browse to your heart's content. Go ahead, the finder will play them in the preview pane. Just drag either the music or ipod_control folder onto the itunes library and it'll import the songs.<br><br><br><br>

I could have swore it used to not let you see any AAC files. I remember I had a program to download songs off of my iPod, but it only worked with .mp3s (which I have a whole dozen or so songs in) ...but you are correct. I can see them for sure now. Thanks for the correction!<br><br>

I don't see this as being a PC formatted iPod ... but thanks for the clarification and picture ... but as a note ... I can't understand why everyone on these boards has to be so confrontational and arrogant when they make points.<br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM

Just a point of clarification: saying "Mind explaining that - " and then saying something as if it was fact can come off as being confrontational and arrogant. Some responses are just reactionary to that.<br><br>Also, most of us have been here a while so sometimes we get sarcastic with each other, and pretend to be arrogant because we know the other party will understand and often get a chuckle out of it.<br><br>In other words, don't worry about it. It's no big deal.<br><br>
