is there a way to recover mp3's synced to a microsoft zune?

i plan on dumping my computer soon and i dont have all my music exactly backed up.

is it possible to recover the music off of that or should i back it up in some other way?
Yes, it is possible. You simply drag it to the icon in the bottom left corner of the software and it will put it on your computer.
Go to the device tab, and go to the music tab. Now drag all the songs to the little computer icon in the bottom left corner and wait.
make sure you then back all of you music to disks if you're gonna trash your computer
