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.

    I accidently "x" off the download of firefox 4 before it had finished and now the home page doesn't work. it loads but then wont let me search from it? i tried redownloading firefox but that didn't work is there a way i can resume the previous download?

    Your More system details list show that you run the latest Firefox 4.0.1 version.<br />
    You can check that via Help > About Firefox and on the Help > Troubleshooting Information page.
    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process.

    If you posted from another computer then download the full version and uninstall the currently installed version.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    * Firefox 4.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    * Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    * Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    * It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder] and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

    It's a Finder feature, related to Quick Look. You can hit the space bar in the file list to get a preview.
    If that doesn't work, you may have an issue witha  preference file or similar. I find rebuilding the launch databse works quite well resilving tis kind of thing, as does trashing Finder preferences

  • I copied a form , now all references to the used logic have disappeared. How can i get these back?

    I copied a form in Formscentral, now all references to the used logic have disappeared. How can i get these back? I am using a subscription based version.

    Hi;
    You want to "Duplicate" the form in order to retain all of the Show/Hide logic.  If you "copy" the form by copying and pasting all of the fields from within a form that does not retain the Show/Hide logic. 
    To Duplicate a form close the form and select it in the "My Forms" tab, you can either choose "Duplicate" from the context menu or click the button on the toolbar along the top:

    Did you fail to import your photos before updating?  If so, then they are likely gone.  You can try restoring from backup.  If that fails then they are gone.  You should regularly import photos to your computer, most especially before any update.
    Did you fail to transfer any purchases on iphone ( that were not on your computer) to your computer before updating?  If so, then you will have to redownload:

  • I just deleted all my photos from my iPhone , I have the cloud and backup turned on how do I get my pics back to my phone

    I just deleted my photos from my I phone I have the cloud setup home do I get them back

    If the photos were in your camera roll when you last backed up, restoring the backup should recover them.  Restoring an iCloud backup requires first erasing your phone.  If you have any newer data on your phone since the backup that you want to keep, you'll need to save that first.  Then go to Settings>General>Reset, tap Erase All Content and Settings, go through the setup screens on the phone and when given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup.  Sign into your iCloud account and choose your last backup to restore to.
    Make sure you phone is connected to wifi and your charger as this may take some time to finish.

    Hi Goofy Goat,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    It sounds like you have done some great troubleshooting for your iPod nano that is not responding. In this situation, if resetting it did not resolve, I would suggest restoring the iPod back to its factory settings and then sync your content back onto it from iTunes. Please use the following article as a resource for restoring.

  • I just did update of software and i lost all of my picture and songs from itune which is un usual .could any one tell me how could i get iphoto working again?

    i just did update of software and i lost all of my picture and songs from itune which is un usual .could any one tell me how could i get iphoto working again?

    What did you update with what?  Are we talking a computer?  A device like an iPhone?  You updated iTunes?  You updated the operating system?
    If you updated the iOS on a device, I believe it warns you it will erase the device and you should make a backup first.  Restore from the backup.
    iPhoto is an application pretty much separate from iTunes.  There is an iPhoto forum if you are having problems with that application.

  • For some reason all my playlists and most of my songs are no longer on my i-tunes.  What happened and how do I get it back?

    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping.  Note that in iTunes 11 an "empty" library may show your past purchases with links to stream or download them.
    In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
    Alternatively, depending on exactly when and why the library went missing, there may be a more recent .tmp file in the main iTunes folder that can be renamed as iTunes Library.itl to restore the library to a recent state.
    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
    When you get it all working make a backup!
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.
    I've noticed more of these missing library posts of late and a common factor since I started asking is AVG Anti-Virus. It seems it might be at least part of the reason why the library file disappears. Try excluding the iTunes folder from any real-time scanning process.

  • My iPod Classic is seen by Windows but not by iTunes.  I have reset it, gone to disk mode and it won't show up in iTunes.  There appears to be music on it in a file called MUSICSAVE.  How can I get this to work with iTunes again?

    My iPod Classic is seen by Windows but not by iTunes.  I have reset it, gone to disk mode and it won't show up in iTunes.  There appears to be music on it in a file called MUSICSAVE.  How can I get this to work with iTunes again?

    1. Update iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes still can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
    2. Click on your windows start menu. Type in "services". Click on it and when it pops up, on the bottom of it click on "standard". Now Scroll down to find "Apple Mobile Device" Right click it when you see it and click on "Start". When it has started, close iTunes and replug in your iPod and it should show up.
    3. Check the USB cable
    4 Verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is installed
    5. Restart the Apple Mobile Device Service and verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed.
    6. If you just want to add some photos, songs and movies from computer to your devices, you can use an iTunes alternative to do the job
    7. Check for third-party software conflicts.

  • I downloaded garage band on my iPad ages ago but now it just says waiting and when I click on it it just says "retry" and does nothing. I've spent literally ages making songs (I've got like 20 ). How can I get it back with all my songs still there?

    Thanks for that. Much more constructive than the last comment. It's only the restriction code I can't recall, not the access passcode. So I can currently access the device, just not age restricted content. Does that's make a difference? I also wondered if anyone knew how many attempts you get to try to get it right. Now tried 21 times and so far nothing bad has happened but I am concerned I'll eventually be completely locked out of the device. That doesn't seem in the spirit of things though. Surely it's foreseeable that a child could repeatedly try to guess the code so I can't see that it would be right to lock the device down completely in that circumstance, particularly if the access code is being typed in correctly every time.
    Thanks
