CAN I COPY MY ENTIRE IPOD?
miShare performs best when transferring twenty or fewer files at a time. While it is possible to perform large transfers with miShare, we suggest using a computer and software if you can. The two utilities we recommend most often are Senuti for the Mac and sharepod or MediaMonkey for Windows. Both programs, unlike iTunes, enable you to copy files from the iPod to a computer - a life-saver if you want to bring your iPod over to a new computer, or back up an iPod to a new computer. We also recommend setting your iPod to manually manage music, so that you can connect the iPod to any iTunes computer and add new files.
WHERE ARE THE FILES?
Look for a report of what happened on the target iPod in the Extras->Notes->miShareSummary. (How to find this file: Storing and reading notes with your iPod)

miShare will copy the contents of the source iPod's "On-The-Go" playlist to the target iPod into a new playlist called "miShare Playlist." (miShare playlists are numbered if one with the same name already exists.) In some situations files are copied to the target iPod's disk area:
  • 1. If the target iPod is set to automatically synchronize with iTunes, the files are also placed in folders called "miShare Music" or "miShare Videos" on the target iPod's disk area so you can add the files to your home iTunes at a later time. (Instructions from Apple: Using your iPod as a storage drive, Adding content to iTunes)
  • 2. If the file is protected with Digital Rights Management (DRM), for example if it was purchased from the iTunes Store. The files are placed in folders called "miShare Music" or "miShare Videos" on the target iPod's disk area so you can add the files to your home iTunes at a later time. (Instructions from Apple: Using your iPod as a storage drive, Adding content to iTunes)
  • 3. If the target iPod cannot play videos, then any copied videos will only be copied to the disk area's "miShare Videos" folder. (How to find these files: Using your iPod as a storage drive)
HOW TO SHARE VIDEOS
Since you cannot make an "On-The-Go" video playlist, miShare defaults to copying a playlist on the source iPod called "miShare Videos." If this playlist does not exist, miShare will copy the video on the target iPod that was last played in iTunes. The procedure is the same as above, just set the switch to the video setting (one setting from the right.)
