I've been given a cast-off 3rd generation Ipod Nano that was being managed by a Chinese version of iTunes. When I connect it to UK iTunes, iTunes wants to reformat it and start again. There are some 'songs' (stupid name) on it that I want to keep, but Itunes gives me no function to 'dump' these to my PC.

Linux allows me to browse the contents of the flash memory in the iPod, but cannot 'decode' the music file names from the coding used by iTunes. However, Rythmbox can show me all I need to know about the various music 'collections' on the iPod. This allows me to see which of the music I would like to save to my PC and then reload with iTunes UK - but I don't see anyway in Rythmbox to copy these music items to my /home.

Is there any way I can do this?
