With lots of wonderful songs in iPod Touch 5, users may desire to transfer music from iPod Touch 5 to computer. Actually, there are various advantages of transferring music from iPod Touch 5 to computer. For one thing, one can enjoy those favorite songs with his computer; for another, he can have all iPod Touch 5 songs backed up. However, it is not an easy way to transfer music from iPod Touch to computer. Generally speaking, it is a fancy story to make the transference of music from iPod Touch 5 to computer work instantly via Micro SD card or USB port. Therefore, without third-party application, one will fail to transfer music from iPod Touch 5 to computer. Here, two methods will be covered on sharing songs on iPod Touch 5 to computer.
Method One: Transfer with iTransfer
As an application designed exclusively to manage the transference of data between Apple devices and computers, iTransfer can not only import songs from local computer to iPod Touch 5, but also transfer data from one iPod to another iPod. Therefore, to transfer music from iPod Touch 5 to computer with iTransfer, one just need to plug in the Apple device, choose the songs and then set the location of output file. However, iTransfer only works when users have installed iTunes beforehand.

Method Two: Transfer with iCloud
As one of the most eye-attraction service carried out by Apple, the loftily-expected iCloud is accessible to almost all Apple devices. After two-year evolution, iCloud enables users to manage the transference of music from iPod Touch 5 to computer. What they need to do is to upload the songs to the cloud with iPod Touch 5 and then download the songs from the cloud with computers. Moreover, iTunes plays no role in this process.
However, this method is a good one to transfer music from iPod Touch 5 to computer but not a perfect one. For one thing, the uploading of photos from iPod Touch 5 to iCloud is not time-consuming but also data-eating. For another, since limited storage is provided, extra charge will be needed to use more storage when all free storage is consumed.
