  • How do i get my music from ipod onto new computer when old computer died

    my old computer died unexpectedly and now i have a new one ...how do i get my music from ipod to itunes...i don't want to lose it since i have already paid for it...

    1). Connect your iPod to your new computer. If it is set to sync automatically you'll get a message that it is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all the songs from your iPod.
    2). When your iPod appears in the iTunes source list change the update setting to manual, that will let you continue to use your iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button. Also when using most of the utilities listed below your iPod needs to be enabled for disc use, changing to manual update will do this by default: Managing content manually on iPod and iPhone
    3). Once you are connected and your iPod is safely in manual mode there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. iTunes will only let you copy your purchases directly from an iPod to the computer, you'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computer
    For everything else (music from CDs, other downloads and including iTunes purchases) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:
    Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    Comparison of iPod managers

    TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    iPod2PC Windows Only
    iDump Windows Only
    YamiPod Mac and Windows
    iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows
    Floola Mac & Windows
    iPodRip Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)

    iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    iPod Access Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    TouchCopy Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available on page 2 at this link: Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide
    4). Whichever of these retrieval methods you choose, keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync.
    5). I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive

  • How can I get my bookmarks back on my new computer?

    In short, I've got a list of links that used to be my bookmarks, but there is no file in which they're all together. How can I get all of them into Firefox at once?
    Detailed version:
    Before my laptop got replaced, I backed things up on an external hard drive, but it only backed up certain file types. I've retrieved things from my backup now, and the only things I've found from my bookmarks is a folder in the old "User" folder called "Favorites" and it has the list of all my old bookmarks from some previous export (not sure if that's from IE or Firefox, but I'd take either, because they were mostly synced up).

    Did you save your information before re-installing Windows? If you did, [[Recovering important data from an old profile]] may help

  • Computer crashed how do i get my music from ipod onto new computer

    basically my old laptop crashed and there's no way i can back up my music from that computer
    is there a way i can take the music thats already on my ipod and put it on another computer

    You'll need to copy the music currently on your iPod to your new PC and into iTunes first before you can sync it to the new iPod.

  • Seems like the iTunes app has lost most of my music. How can I get my music back?

    Seems like the iTunes app has lost most of my music. How can I get my music back?

    A new version shouldn't do that but it does seem to happen on occasion to a few unlucky ones.  Restore your library from the backup you make of your computer before you install new software.  If you don't have one, this is a learning experience.
    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was planned with you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchases which can be transferred to a computer.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1848 - only purchases from iTunes Store
    For transferring other items from an i-device to a computer you will have to use third party commercial software.  See this document by turingtest2: Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device - https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991

  • Olp PC crashed, new PC now how do I get my music back?

    Have new PC now. Saved all folders from old PC HDD. Will install iTunes 7.6 on new PC but how should I get my music back from the old PC's HDD? My iPod contains music purchased from iTunes, plus music from alot of CD's I own. WOuld like to recover music from my old HDD rather than synching from iPod (which I don't know how to do anyway!)

    Yes, just delete the duplicates but make sure to keep at least one copy!
    Actually it might be easiest to start over - totally clear your library, and make sure this copy setting is turned off
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61658
    then clear out your new PC's music folder.
    Then add everything back from your old hard drive.
    You only have to authorize one song for the whole PC to get authorized:

  • HT4972 after downloading ios5.1.1 how do you get your music back on your ipod?

    after downloading ios5.1.1 how do you get your music back on your ipod

    Sync it from your iTunes library
    Redownload iTunes purchases by
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    If it was not in your iTunes library and you updated via iTunes you will have to get the music again sinve synced media like apps and music are not include din the iPod backup that iTunes makes.

  • I downloded music using a different apple id on my ipad then i changed my id to match my iphone but it isnt showing my music i bought with my other id on icloud. how can i get my music back!?

    i downloded music using a different apple id on my ipad then i changed my id on my ipad to match my iphone but it isnt showing my music i bought with my old ipad apple id on icloud. how can i get my music back!?

    It won't show on iCloud because iCloud is associated with a specific Apple ID.  The music should be on your computer's iTunes and a Sync will put it on the iPad (be sure to configure iTunes properly).  If you want to get it from iCloud, I think that you need to temporarily change your ID back to the old one but I've never done that myself.

    Unless you subscribe to iTunes Match , Apple does not keep a backup of your iTunes library.  Even then it is not the library as it exists on your computer, but some version of the media, and only media files, not playlists.  Even then not all media are definitely available since anything removed from the iTunes Store since you purchased it is not available for re-download.

    Using Match as a backup for iTunes - https://discussions.apple.com/message/17039436#17039436
    In your case it sounds like you will have to obtain non iTunes purchases from their original source or a backup you may have made at some time in the past.

  • I was updating my software on my iphone 4 and it crashed so it recovered it and i restored it from its back up. However I have lost all my music and my apps but not my pictures. How can i get my music back and apps back?

    Media and apps are not part of the backup. They need to be re-synced from your itunes library or re-downloaded from the store.
