It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for just such an occasion.
Use your backup copy to put everything back.
If for some reason you have failed to maintain a backup copy ( not good), then you can transfer itunes purchases from your ipod.  Without syncing:  File>Transfer Purchases

    Hello Creekside1,
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!
    You can trasnfer your purchases from the iPod to the computer with this article:

    You can also download your iTunes purchases to your iTunes library with this article:

  • Is there any way to transfer an entire library from an ipod to a new laptop (not just the purchases)?

    My laptop was stolen that had my itunes installed and was synced with my ipod classic. I now have a new laptop. Is there any way I can transfer ALL the music from my ipod to itunes on the new laptop, not just the purchases? I don't have access to all the CD's etc that I originally downloaded onto my ipod.

  • My old iTunes library has been replaced by a new library, I didn't download a new version or authorize it. I have lost all my music, is there any way of retrieving my old library.

    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 independently backed up against loss.  To use a device with a new computer you transfer the content from the old computer (or its backup) directly to the new computer, not the device to the new computer. Media 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

  • I accidentally hit the install software update on my IPad and I am not by my computer and won't be for 2 weeks.  Is there any way I can get my IPad off the picture of connecting to ITunes?

    I accidentally hit the install software update on my IPad and I am not by my computer and won't be for 2 weeks.  Is there any way I can get my IPad off the picture of connecting to ITunes?

    No. You must connect your iPad to a computer (it does not have to be yours) in order to restore it to factory settings.
    Once you're home, you can restore it from a backup.
    Any content that you did not backup has been lost.

  • I have an ipod classic. My library is or was on my PC but I no longer have it. All I have now is my ipod on it. Can I (and how) transfer the content from my ipod onto my new PC

    I have the ipod Classic. My original library was on my old PC which I no longer have. Is it possible and if so - how? to transfer my libray from my ipod onto my new PC

    There's a 3rd party program called copy trans suite that I use to move files from my ipod to my itunes library and/or my pc.  I bought it because my itunes library had become damaged and the only copy I had of it was on my classic.  Since then I've regularly backed up my itunes libary to prevent it from happening again.

  • How do i get my music from my iPod onto a new itunes library?

    My dad accidentally restored our computer and i can't sync my iPod because itunes says that it is "synced" with a now non existent itunes library. i can transfer purchases, but some of the music is from CD's i have purchased or some of it has just dissapeared from purchased due to new computers and such. please help. i just want all my music safely on my computer so i can sync it again....

    - You need a third-party program like one of those discussed here:
    Copy music from Ipod to new computer...: Apple Support Communities
    - Then after all the stuff is on the cmputr, connect the iPod to the computer and make a backup by right clicking one the iPOd under Devices in iTunes and select Back Up
    - Restore the iPod from that backup.

  • How do I get my songs from my ipod onto a new itunes library???

    How do I sync my ipod to my new computer without losing all my songs??

    Connect your iPod to your computer. If it is set to update 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. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual and use your iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. 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. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button: Managing content manually on iPod
    Once you are safely connected there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. If you have any iTunes Music Store purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. You'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod to a computer
    The transfer of content from other sources such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However 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. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, this is just a small selection of what's available, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:
    Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    Comparison of iPod managers
    TuneJack Windows Only
    iPod2PC Windows Only
    iGadget Windows Only
    iDump Windows Only
    SharePod Windows Only
    iPodRip Mac & Windows
    YamiPod Mac and Windows
    Music Rescue Mac & Windows
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows
    iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    iPod Access 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
    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. 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.

  • How can I upload my library from my iPOD to a new itunes account. My old library was lsot when computer crashed.

    How can I upload my iPods library into a new iTunes account on a new computer.  My old account and lilbrary was lost when my computer crashed.

    you cant. You can transfer purchases, but nothing that was not purchased with itunes will transfer.
    You can import photos as well.

    You can redownload iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    For other items you will have to get them from where you originally got them. The backup that iTunes makes does not include synced media like apps, music, synced photos.

    Whenever you connect iPhone in iTunes, it syncs and a backup is created. Check backup folder if you have that time-stamped file saved.
