Itunes

Post by foot-tapper » Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:55 pm

I've just managed to delete all my music from the laptop I use for Itunes when I meant to delete the music from my back up hard drive them load to the back up all the music from the laptop. Lost a load of stuff as backup was 6 months old. I'm OK with the stuff I've downloaded from I tunes as that should go back when I plug in the Ipod and some stuff I've got on CD's but lost anything I've downloaded from Amazon. Not happy but it's my stupidity.

Help please Does anyone know of a programme where I can download all my music back from my ipod to my laptop.

When you plug the ipod into the computer you should see a message saying something like 'there are items on your ipod that are not on your computer, do you want to transfer them?'. That should allow you to copy them back.

I think about 90% back . Haven't had time to sit and check but I know I've lost much of the Bryan Adams stuff but managed to loan copy cds when I get chance to pick them up. It's hectic being retired.

It's a lesson we all learn in time, then forget , and learn again and again.
