    you don't need any programmes just do this:
    For Windows:
    1) connect iPod and hold Shift + Ctrl - this stops the auto sync
    2) If your iPod doesn't appear in 'My Computer' then enable disk use for the iPod
    3) Go to 'My Computer' and Double-click your iPod to open it
    4) From the menu bar go to Tools > Folder Options…
    5) Select the 'View' tab
    6) scroll down and enable 'Show Hidden Files and Folders'
    7) hit 'Apply' or 'OK'
    Double-click on 'iPod_Control', then 'Music'
    9) Copy the contents (Folders named F01, F02, etc.) to your HDD
    10) open iTunes preferences and under the advanced pane, make sure that 'Keep iTunes Music folder organized' and, 'Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library' are checked. The first option will fix up the filenames so that they appear normal, the second makes sure that the songs are somewhere safe that iTunes knows about.
    11) Drag the Folders into the iTunes window to import your music
