Tech tools: Clickfree Transformer for iPod
Have an iPod or iPhone? Then you need this. The Clickfree transformer allows you to transfer files to and from your device with little or no hassle.
One end plugs into your iPod/iPhone, the other plugs into your computer. You can then use it to take music and playlists from your iPod and transfer it to a computer, or back up documents, videos, photos and other files to the free space on your music player at a click.
So should you need to move the contents of your iPod to a PC or Mac other than your original computer, you can do it with minimal stress.
The chances that you need to do this are, for most people, probably slim. However, a recent restore of an iPhone meant I lost everything on the device. Because while the programmes on your Mac will back up some of the data, it doesn’t include music. And should your Mac die a sudden death. you might find yourself without an iTunes library.
The Clickfree transformer works via USB, no software is needed and it wont overwrite existing files. It also promises to work with future versions that Apple releases.
