How to Transfer Music from iPod to iTunes

I had a MacBook with all of my iPod music on it. But recently it was broken and the music was lost. So I got a new laptop (PC). I am trying to figure out how to transfer the music on my iPod to the new computer.

If the songs were purchased from iTunes Store, you can simply transfer the purchases to the iTunes in your new PC. However, for other music in your iPod, you need to find a different way. To get all your iPod music transferred to iTunes, the best solution is TunesGo. It lets you export iPod music to iTunes with one click.
