    You can get iTunes purchases back by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    For other items you need to get them from whee yuo got them the first time.
    The iPod backup that iTunes makes does not include synced mediai like apps and music. If those ore not in the iTunes library on the computer on which you performed the update they are lost.

    The first time an iPhone is connected to iTunes that is used to sync with another iPhone or iOS device, you are prompted to transfer the backup for the other iPhone or iOS device or to set up the iPhone as a new iPhone.
    The former does as provided - it transfers the backup for the other iPhone or iOS device to the iPhone replacing all data on the iPhone that is included with the backup being transferred. The latter does nothing allowing you to make your various selections for the iPhone sync preferences with iTunes.
    This is designed to be done right away with a new iPhone.
    If you don't have a backup for the iPhone with iTunes on your computer and don't have an iCloud backup that hasn't been updated since choosing to transfer the backup for your iPod Touch to the iPhone, the data that was on the iPhone is gone.

  • I updated my itouch and now all of my apps are gone

    I have updated my itouch to version 4.2 and now all of my apps are gone.  I have sync'ed the ipod to my pc, but my apps didn't show back up on my itouch.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is possible that you accidently pressed 'restore' and not 'update' in which case the iPod Touch was restored to original software and the apps were not synced back on as you probably did not restore from backup (if you had a backup). Make sure that iTunes thinks it should sync apps as trrlightning suggested, and check to see if you are able to download apps onto the device wirelessly using the App Store App.

  • I accidentally added a folder to iTunes music library and now all of my songs are in there twice. How do I delete the folder/music i just imported?

    I added a folder accidentally to my iTunes library and now all of the songs are in there twice. I tried to stop the import but it transferred too quickly. How do I delete all those songs without having to click on each one to delete?

    Apple's official advice on duplicates is here... HT2905: How to find and remove duplicate items in your iTunes library. It is a manual process and the article fails to explain some of the potential pitfalls such as lost ratings and playlist membership.
    Use Shift > View > Show Exact Duplicate Items to display duplicates as this is normally a more useful selection. You need to manually select all but one of each group to remove. Sorting the list by Date Added may make it easier to select the appropriate tracks, however this works best when performed immediately after the dupes have been created.  If you have multiple entries in iTunes connected to the same file on the hard drive then don't send to the recycle bin.
    Use my DeDuper script if you're not sure, don't want to do it by hand, or want to preserve ratings, play counts and playlist membership. See this thread for background, this post for detailed instructions, and please take note of the warning
    to backup your library before deduping.
    (If you don't see the menu bar press ALT to show it temporarily or CTRL+B to keep it displayed.)
    The most recent version of the script can tidy dead links as long as there is at least one live duplicate to merge stats and playlist membership to and should cope sensibly when the same file has been added via multiple paths.

    my mom updated her iphon4 last night and now all of her contacts are gone.  i have tried everything that I have come across and nothing is working. help?

    What cloud service or contact manager was she syncing them to? They should still be there and she should be able to sync them back.  If she was not doing so, they are gone.

  • When I did the upgrade it resulted in a factory reset. Now all of my ringtones are gone from iTunes. Anyone have a solution?

    When I did the upgrade it resulted in me having to do a factory reset because it was pausing for long periods of time. It went through the backup and all other steps but now all of my ringtones are gone from iTunes, thus the phone. I tried to redownload one I had purchased and it made me purchase it again (I did this as a test), and it said I had purchased it before but still required me to purchase again.
    Anyone have a solution/thoughts/help?

    Command + Z undoes the last action you did, did you just move those files into that folder?
    Use Spotlight to search for the files, or look for them in their original location(s).

  • I installed ios6 on my iPad3 and now all my calendar items are gone, how do I get them back? I tried deleting my account and adding it back I. Still no calendar

    I Installed ios6 on my iPad and now all my calendar items are gone.  I tried deleting my email account and adding it back in but still no calendar items

    I had the same problem on my iphone 4s and before I had realized it my phone synced up with my computer and deleted  all the appointments in my outlook calendar as well.  I run microsoft exchange and unfortunately my ISP doesnt backup for me so I am left reconstructing my calendar from scratch. Apple support said they had no idea why this had happened and couldnt help me.  Not very reassuring.

  • I downloaded the latest version of iTunes and now ALL of my songs sounf d like skipping records.  How do I get rid of this or completely remove the new version that I downloaded???

    I booted up my computer and opened up my usual shortcuts.  I got a message from iTunes that a new version was available and would I like to download it.  I clicked on "yes".  It took over 1/2 hour to download and now ALL of my songs sound like a skipping record or like they are tripping over themselves.  I uninstalled the ITunes and tried reinstalling my old version.  I've tried EVERYTHING I could think of to get my old version back but everytime I go through the download process I get a message saying that - the file "iTunes Library.itl "cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes.  I was finally able to download a version that will open but it has the same "skipping" problem.  How do I stop/fix this or COMPLETELY get rid of this version of iTunes and re-download what I had???  I'm REALLY distressed.      Jim

    Usually, the exclamation mark tells you that the song was not where the program expected to find it. It may also mean that there was an error with the file itself.
       If you click on the exclamation mark, it may give you a reason. You can also double click the file to make it play. If the file is not found, it will tell you. Just follow the prompts to look for the song again. It will ask you if you want to look for the other missing songs in the same folder. You can do it, but unfortunately, the last few updates have made the program blind to the songs that are there and you sometimes have to do the same process for each song.
       If neither of these help, I would suggest starting from scratch and reinstalling iTunes. I have had to do that before. Do your best to back up the library and such first.
       Sometimes a computer will rename a hard disk (Windows) and all the songs on that disk will be gone to iTunes because it will think it's looking in the right place. It can't recognize that the hard disk or partition has been renamed.
    I know that this is a podcast, but the principle is the same. A dialogue box should pop up to tell you just what the problem is.
       I hope this helps!

  • I upgraded iTunes to 10.6 and now all of my playlists are gone - help!

    One simple update to iTunes, and now all of my playlists (smart and regular) are gone.  Any idea on how to get them back, or to revert to 10.5?

    Do you see a file Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.itl ?  If so, there's your playlists.  Hold down the option key while starting iTunes and guide it to that file.
    If that files is gone, do you have other content in your iTunes folder, in particular media and or a file ending in .xml or backup files?  Depending upon what you see you can probably recover your lists.
    It is always a good idea to back up before installing new software.  Some day your hard drive will die and nothing (except maybe $2000+) will recover it.

    Re: That garbage is unreadable.
    If you really want help, stop messing with the fonts and post so that others can read and offer suggestions.
    Or better yet... try a search, I'm certain you'll find a solution to whatever issue you're experiencing.
    I have found that many times it is the things that make you most angry that push you to action. This was the case here. Thank you for causing me to get so angry that I found the answer myself.

  • I just updated my iTunes and now ALL of my music is gone what happened and how do I fix it ASAP?

    Litterly 15 Mins ago all of my music was present. I - in fact - just finished using it to play a song. Then I got a window that popped up saying that my iTunes is in need of an update. So I update it then it said it was all up to snuff...
    So I go back into my iTunes to continue using it
    but now It's ALL GONE!!!!
    what happened and how to I fix it ASAP???
    ---because this is like 80g's of music man, I spent Months - MONTHS ripping all my cd's and formating EVERYTHING NICELY into iTunes just to have the work poof disapear?
    come on!

    But I do back up everything, as much as I am able...
    However, it seems to me I've got to shift everything back into iTunes - Again.
    if this is the norm, I would like to see - for others because now I know! - a little warning
    "Hi, We're iTunes, and you need an update. So please update, just let it be known however, then when you do - we'll delete your catalog and any playlists. Thanks for using iTunes"
    something like that, because now I've gotta re-load everything back... bolics I say bolics.

  • Updated iTunes and now can't remove songs from my iPod - please help

    I've updated iTunes to version 11.0.0.163 and have an iPod Nano 16gb 5th generation.
    In iTunes, I'm no longer able to manually select songs to remove them from my iPod - I can't even see the list of music that's on my iPod. The only option it gives me is to sync, and I don't want to do that. Before I upgraded iTunes, it was easy to move music between my iPod and iTunes, now I can't - what's happened?
    My iPod is full so I want to remove some music, not all of it. Any advice? Please help - I'm going round in circles!
    Thanks
