where did you put the music that you downloaded,
what version of iTunes are you using?
what Operating System does your computer us.
You are right to not connect your iPod just yet as it will remove all the tracks from it if iTunes is empty.
I use Windows 7, and my iTunes is the newest version. Someone told me that somehow I could transfer the songs from my iPod touch to my iTunes account
Yes you can,
with a program called iRip.
what is iRip?
I have all of my music saved on multiple folders on my computer, I'm not sure if they are even there anymore.
& yeah, I uploaded all of my music onto my iTunes account
If you have all the music save on multiple folders
on your computer,
then all your music is still available.
iTunes deleted even music I bought through them!
This is the 5th time this has happened! Seems it's random and happens as I'm copying music that I've gotten either through friends who give me music from their paid for CDs or MP3s as well as music I've downloaded from web sites. Unfortunately I use iTunes to move music from my PC to the iPod and while I'm happily adding music, iTunes is TAKING music! I recently bought an iPad, recommended by a trusted friend and I just returned it vowing to NEVER touch another Apple product again. The 1st few times iTunes took music I got some patronising emails and only once did they let me reload music purchased directly from them. That did me no good for the rest of the music. But they told me that it was a once in a lifetime thing that they'd let me reload purchases. So now I don't have music I PAID FOR and Apple/iTunes doesn't care. Theft. Plain and simple. I guess they rely on us to be stupid to make their money.
ITunes just took over 40 gigs of my music
I tunes just wiped over 40 Gigs of my music from my computer and my remote hard drive.
All that is left are the folders with the band names and then folders in each of those with the album name. A large amount of these i had copied from my CD collection over the last few years in my spare time. My friend just mentioned its over 60 gigs!
I would like any input on saving my tunes because normally you can recover deleted files, multiple ways. Those ways arent working. Also one folder of a song i Bought from itunes, has no song in it but shows that it takes up more memmory. I right clicked in the folder and it says the purchase time of this song has expired?!?!?!
I actually know something much more about this. I hope it isnt true and was just drunk talk by upper apple execs but if its true...........
Re: music disappeared
That's why most people make a backup of everything they don't want to lose. As we say here "you only lose what you don't backup". And alas, this is another case that proves it.
With a 2 TB disk being $50, the cost of storing an extra copy of 60 GB is $3 exactly. Do you mean to say it's worth less than $3 to you? Then, indeed, making a backup is a waste of time and money.
What Gives Them The Right?
What gives Apple (iTunes) the right to delete music from our libraries? How is it chosen for deletion? I, for one, am switching to another platform for storing my music. Even if it isn't as user friendly as iTunes, I know I will spend more time listening and less time figuring out what songs they deleted, finding them again and reloading them. Plus the frustration, confusion and outrage that they would take it upon themselves to take my music away. JUNK!
This is a rather old discussion.
It's time to close it out. If you didn't backup your stuff, well, any update to iTunes could be trouble. Let's start a new thread where you tell the troubles and please include how you backup your stuff.
I disagree. While it is the user's responsibility to back up their files, Apple should NOT be able to erase MY files off of MY computer. It is a form of theft or cyber sabotage.
Given the priors on that.
You can backup, safeguard your stuff but so far no one I know has seen this happen. I have seen items vanish for many reasons but none due to what I read here.
