As shown in the picture above you could also setup syncing on selected items by choosing selected playlists,artists,albums,and genres.

Note:- If you are syncing your iPod with iTunes, be careful because iPod can only be synced with one iTunes library and if you have synced your iPod with iTune on other computer the previous content synced from the other computer will be erased and replaced with the content from new computer.So select the option carefully when prompted.You could just transfer the purchases from iPod to PC by selecting Transfer Purchases.

  • Unlock your iOS device using your passcode, particularly if you've never synced your device with the computer before. 
  • Makes sure your iOS device trusts the computer you want to import your media onto.

Note:- You can import only photo and video content taken with the built-in camera or captured on the device. You can't import photo or video content synced from iTunes.
Windows XP might not be able to import videos larger than 500MB without iTunes installed, a third-party program, or updated drivers.

Method 4. Using iCloud.

If you don't wanna do all those steps mentioned above you could back up all the photos by syncing to iCloud and then install iCloud on Windows PC to transfer or copy all the pictures.


Method 5. Use iFunBox.

Through Window Explorer, you can only import the photos in iPhone Camera Roll. While for the photos that saved on other Albums, or synced from iTunes library, you'll need a professional iPhone photo transfer software.There are multiple software to transfer photos from iOS device to Windows PC But all of them have some limitation and some of them are paid.So I would rather use the one which has no limitation and open source free software. iFunbox is one them as this has so many great features and is free to use.Below are the links to download some of these iOS file management software.
