HT204406 I bought iTunes Match enabled it on my ipad now the 1800 songs in my library are gone and all I have is the music my daughter purchased from itunes how can I get them back. for her ipad.

I have ipad 3 & daughter new ipad mini with RD. She has nano and I have classic. Her nano syncs to her own laptop and mine to my desktop. I bought iTunes Match and authorised both iPads and both iPods. I have now enabled iTunes Match in my ipad and was warned it would replace my library. I pressed "enable" and now the 1800 songs in my library are gone and all I've got is the music my daughter bought from iTunes. What have I done wrong and how can I get my songs back. When I bought iTunes Match I got 1 e-mail confirming subscription and another providing receipt but nothing else no links etc. any assistance would be appreciated.

You can only upload music from your computer's iTunes, you can't do it from an iOS device - when you subscribe to iTunes Match on your computer it should have scanned your music library on it and matched or uploaded any non-iTunes purchased music to it.
Do you have copies of those tracks anywhere e.g. on an iOS device or on your backup of your downloads/library ? If they are iTunes purchases then they should be in the cloud. If they were copied from CDs or bought from other sources then if they are only on an iOS device (i.e. you don't have them on a backup) then there are some programs listed half-way down this page which should be able to copy them back : https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991

    Everything should be on your computer.
    You should be syncing contacts and calendars with your comptuer regularly.
    You should be transferring all itunes purchases to your computer regularly.
    You should be importing all pics taken with iphone to your computer regularly.
    Most especially before any update.
    Have you failed to do this?

  • My iPod nano completely eliminated all 214 songs from my music, leaving just the songs I recently purchased (9).  How can I get them back?  I've tried redownloading them but it didn't work.

    My iPod nano completely eliminated all 214 songs from my music, leaving only the 9 songs I last purchased.  When I try to sync, I get a message, "cannot be synced because the iPod cannot be found." 

    When you say "account," do you mean your iTunes library, because your iTunes library is what is on your computer?  Your iTunes library does not have an email address.  An account that is related to iTunes is your Apple ID (which is an email address) and you use it as your user name to sign in to the iTunes Store, to make purchases.  Changing your Apple ID will not make songs disappear from your computer's iTunes library.
    If you had an Apple ID and used it to make song purchases from the iTunes Store, and then started using a different Apple ID, you should be able to re-download the songs purchased with the old Apple ID.  In iTunes, sign in to the iTunes Store using your OLD Apple ID (and password).  That may not be your current email address, but Apple uses it as your user name, so it does not matter.
    On the iTunes Store Home screen, click on Purchased under QUICK LINKS.  This takes you do the Purchased screen, where you can re-download previous song purchases (for that Apple ID) at no cost. 
    NOTE:  If those song purchases are from more than a few years ago, you may also need to authorize your computer to play (and sync) songs for your old Apple ID. 
    For songs that were not purchased from the iTunes Store, if they are also gone, you cannot get them back unless you have a backup (or they are still loaded on your old iPod).
    If that's not what you mean by "changed the email address on my account," please post back with more details.

  • TS1702 I lost all of my apps when i updated my iphone 4.  How can I get them back on my phone?

    I updated my phone and lost all of my apps.  How can I get the apps on iTunes back on my phone?

    I lost all of my apps icons today as well.  I have to go to the Apps Store and click on the the app.  Can't re-dowload and the app. store says that all of my apps. updates were applied.  Where is this Synch Apps and the Apps Tab?  On the phone or in iTunes.  I hope that this works for me, too.
    PS - every update that I have done has required a restore, and I only have a couple dozen apps.  The Apple rep. I spoke with today said that I have to redownload the apps, but can't do that and even if I could I would loose my data.  Grrrrrrr.

  • I have suddenly lost all my reminders in a perticular mail account, how can i get them back on my ipad?

    Ipad2

    How did it get disabled?
    Are these apps that you paid for or your school paid for? If they are yours make sure you have entered your AppleID in Settings > iTunes & App Store and download them again. You don't have to pay again.

  • Two movies i purchased are no longer on my itunes but i can see them in my purchase history.  How can i get them back?

    I purchased two movies for my iphone 4.  I sold the iphone 4 but i still had the movies on my itunes.  Recently i had to reset my itunes password and when i did all my itunes library was gone.  I can see everything in my purchase history but i cant seem to get it back and i have just bought a new ipad i wanted the movies for that.

    Have you tried ITunes Menu Bar/Store/Check for Available Downloads
    From your iPad try Videos/Store/Purchased/Movies/Not on this iPad/Select the iCloud button to begin download

  • After my computer crashed, i reinstalled itunes but lost most of my purchased items. How can i get them back without paying for them again?

    so after the annoying reintallment of everything on my computer, there were a bunch of music and app that i have not backed up on an external HD. now that itunes hasx been re-installed, i want those items back, but don't want to sync my iphone for fear of losing everything on the phone (apps, music, etc.) that were purchased. Any suggestions?

    Log into your iTunes account on the new comptuer and when you hook up your iPhone there will be a option to reverese sync your iTunes purchased content ONLY, back into iTunes.

  • I updated to ios5 and i lost my movies i downloaded directly to my device.  how can i get them back

    I downloaded a few movies to my ipod touch.  After updating to IOS5 i lost all my movies.  I see there is a place to redownload all music and my tv shows but no place to redownload movies.  what am I missing?

    I'm a bit ******. But it's the first time I had such horrible luck with updates.
    I had problem with comicglass a comic reader. Also stanza went nuts I had to delete it.
    Wound up doing a full restore and then a backup.
    It's a shame iTunes didn't keep a 2nd copy of iPad backup.
    This is why I have triplicate backups for all my files.

  • HT1688 I reset my Iphone and got everything back accept ringtones, how can I get them back?

    I recently reset my Iphone 4S 16 GB and I backed it up with Icloud. I got everything back ( apps, music, photos, ETC.) accept for my purchased ringtones. I am trying everything to get them back. I know they are still there because when I tried to purchase one again, it said I already purchased it. How can I get them back and what happened to them?  
                                                                                                                                                                 Thanks,

    I would try deleting these from your Itunes on your PC/Mac but i gather you have these ticked to sink when you plug in your iphone check this first. Then you could try downloading them again from itunes.
    You can download anything you have purchased again from I tunes by clicking on the purchased link the right hand side of itunes store link in. I have never had Ringtunes so i would make sure these are availble download before you delete. There are lots of good free apps with ringtunes and ones that enable you to simply cut a short sample from any of the tracks from your itunes list.

  • I just updated my iPad to OS5 and all of my apps are gone. What did I do wrong and how can I get them back? Several were paid for. Thanks

    If you have failed to make sure that any apps purchased on the iphone were transferred to your computer before updating, then you will have to redownload.
    Open itunes store, click Purchased, under Quick Links.

  • I updated my iPad 2 iOS to 6.1.2 and lost my album art for all my music, how can I get them back

    I updated my iPad 2 iOS to 6.1.2 and lost my album art for all my music , how can I get them back?

    Have you tried restarting or resetting your iPad?
    Restart: Press On/Off button until the Slide to Power Off slider appears, select Slide to Power Off and, after the iPad shuts down, then press the On/Off button until the Apple logo appears.
    Reset: Press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time and hold them until the Apple logo appears (about 10 seconds). Ignore the "Slide to power off"

  • HT1727 i bought some ringtones on my iPhone, later on i sync my iphone to my old computer now i have a new mac pro desktop and i only have 2 ringtones on my phone but not the rest of them how can i get them back without having to pay for them again?

    If you bought them on your iPad then you will need to connect your iPad to your computer's iTunes and do File > Devices > Transfer Purchases to copy them over to the Tones part of your computer's iTunes library and you can then sync them to your iPhone - ringtones are a one-time only download, so you won't be able to redownload them directly on your phone.

  • I had 21 songs i my album and after syncronising i only had 15 songs left! All of them from Itunes! How can i get them back without paying for them again???

    Where is the backup of the media and other important files from the computer?  Ultimately, it is the users responsibility to ensure that backups exists. Waiting until there is a problem to decide to do a backup is not smart.  Would you wait until a fire started in your home to call the insurance company and inquire about homeowners/renters insurance????
    In the event that no backup exists (stop being lazy.... keep backups of YOUR data and other important files):
    If you are in the US and running iTunes 10.3 or later, it is possible to redownload music via iCloud from purchased history.
    If you are not in the US or for some reason cannot run iTunes 10.3 or later, contact iTunes customer support and ask very nicely for the opportunity to redownload the content.  They are not required to provide this opportunity.
    It is also possible to transfer content from an iDevice that was purchased via iTunes.  On the new computer, sign into the iTunes account, authorize the computer, connect the device then select File > Transfer Purchases.
    The simplest method of all is to transfer or copy the media (and other important files) from the old computer or the backup of the old computer.  Typing "move itunes library" into the search bar here or into google will reveal step by step instructions on how to do this.

  • I deleted some videos on my ipad before synching with my library, and now I can't find them.  How can i get them back?

    I deleted some videos on my ipad before synching with my library, and now I can't find them.  How can i get them back?

    Do you live in the United States? If you do then you can download them again for free - as long as the movies are available for free downloads. Apple has not forged agreements with every movie studio yet so you just have to check.
    Launch iTunes, and tap on the purchased tab. In the upper left corner you will see a "View" button. Tap that in order to toggle among music, TV Shows and Movies. Select Movies and then see if the movies appear. If they do, tap the Movie icon and then tap the cloud icon next to the icon in order to begin the download.
    You have to use the same Apple ID that you used to purchase them.
    If you do not live in the U.S. then you will have to purchase them again.
