If you follow all the steps you will be able to transfer ALL of your tracks from the old machine to the new one.
Do NOT connect the iPod to the new machine before you have transferred all the tracks
update on transferring music to IPOD
I want to make sure I was clear and that I understand what will happen: Are you saying that if I follow those directions the entire library that was on my DESKTOP (NOT an APPLE) will be transferred to my LAPTOP (NOT AN APPLE) and I won't lose the selections I've since added to my LAPTOP but not yet downloaded to my IPOD? Do I have to do something special with the checks next to the selection or will it be automatic?
I'm saying that if you follow the instructions
exactly, you will end up with an exact copy of your original iTunes on your new machine.
Read ALL the instructions before you start this procedure.
import music from ipod to itunes
I started with a similar problem. Changed operating system and lost my music library. Is there any way to import all my songs on the ipod to itunes library?
Try iRip, but
what did you do that made you lose your iTunes library.
Just changing OS's should not have caused a problem and, of course, you had a backup of your data.
You do backup your machine, don't you?
Ipod to Itunes
I didn't lose it. It was on the back up disc i created before changing OP system. I'm not very computer literate so the back up with itunes library on it became useless. I just would have thought it would have been possible to copy your music from your ipod to your itunes library but so far had no luck.
I gave you the answer to that question,
What did you upgrade from and to that caused this loss?
Was iTunes the only thing that was lost?
How did you make the iTunes backup?
Syncing of the iPod is one way only so DO NOT connect your iPod to your computer before you have transferred the tracks from the iPod to the computer. See my first post.
Connecting and syncing the iPod before you have moved the tracks will result in the loss of all the tracks on the iPod.
Ipod to computer
You mention transferring tracks from Ipod to computer. That is what I want to do and can not figure out how to. All the music is on my Ipod and I cant find a way to transfer it to itunes on my computer.
Not sure why you are not actually reading my posts, but
as you obviously are, here it is again.
thanks for the information
Since I started this thread by asking the first question I want to assure everyone who has asked the same question that your advice worked! And thanks so much!
Nice to know and thanks for getting back to us.
Just to clarify,
Post #1 referred to my posts, but you knew that.
