The main software CopyTrans Ver 4.023 covered in this review installed without any problems and immediately asked for your iPod/iPhone to be connected, once connected you can either use the smart backup which checks all your media and provides a suggested backup options, or you can use the manual backup.
I used the smart one and it worked seamlessly copying my media directly from my iPhone over to iTunes including pod casts and photos together with my songs and movie files.
I have to say from what I thought would be a complicated and problematic system CopyTrans 4 makes the process extremely simple and very easy to control. It comes with demo videos and plenty of help but to be honest it’s a straight forward software that needs no instruction, but it’s always good to have a back just in case.
