there are 3rd party solutions to do this, but you are not allowed to do it by default. if you check out some mac forums i'm sure you will find info, but i don't know if it's allowed to post here

Yamipod works well for doing that...

You could enable your iPod in disk mode (do this in preferences within iTunes, when you have your iPod plugged in) then copy your music from your hard drive onto it. The files you are looking for are: "iTunes library" and the entire "iTunes folder", found within your music folder.

It's a long winded way of doing it, and will only work if you have a hard drive, not flash (i.e. shuffle or nano), based iPod but you can then just copy these back onto your computer hard drive and it'll work fine. I did this when I needed to do a complete reformat and system restore.

The exact way that you talk of catwoman, I know for a fact that it works. A while back I actually did format my hdd, and at the time had researched how to replace my music and this was the way to do it. I dont know about this yamipod but I do know for a fact that if you manually drag and drop the file onto you hdd it will work fine. Thank you again for you help miss catwoman.
