CopyTrans is a well-known tool used to transfer music, playlists, photos and videos etc. from iPod/iPhone/iPad to iTunes and PC. However, if you've switched to a Mac, you will find that you can't use CopyTrans anymore, because CopyTrans mac version is not available yet. Therefore, if you want to transfer media files from your iPod/iPhone/iPad to your Mac, or the way back, you should try a CopyTrans for Mac equivalent. In the following, I'd like to share with you how to achieve your goal: transferring iPod/iPhone/iPad media files to iTunes Library or your Mac.

Let's put the first thing: the tool I recommend is Dr.Fone (Mac) - Phone Manager (iOS) - iOS Transfer for Mac. It fully supports the latest OS Mac OS X 10.12(Sierra) and the latest iOS 11. It enables Mac users to copy music and playlists from an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad directly to the iTunes music library on Mac with ratings and play counts. Before the transferring process begins, it will compare the songs on the iDevice and these existing in iTunes music Library. By doing this, it only copies these which are out of the iTunes to the iTunes library. No duplicate and no hassle. And Mac users can also use to copy songs, videos, photos, and more to Mac.
