What about your mp3 player?

i'm sure it's still saved on your harddrive... assuming you have windows... Click: Start, My Music, then drag and drop all of your music into itunes again... surely all is not lost.

You can put songs from your mp3/iPod onto iTunes can't you?

I'm not rubbing it in at all here but this is one of the many reasons why i am against downloading music...its okay sometimes but just think if yo had these on CD then you'd be able to listen to them. I know CDs can break too but if you look after them and treat them well then they'll last a lifetime. But sorry to hear the news anyway-life without music doesnt seem possible...
Bass....How low can you go?????

iTunes makes shortcuts to your music that is saved on your HDD, just check the original directory for it, and drag back into iTunes... unless it really is all gone, in which case, sorry man, I can understand how bad it would be to lose all your music, I know I would never see half of mine ever again.

go to irip.com or something like that. pulls the music of your ipod and puts it on your computer and then itunes.

i ****ing freaked when that happened, but it was still on my hard drive!
#13
i've got a lot of CD's but ripping all of them would take forever. i'll check my hard drive like you said Shyne.
#14
The files should still be on there. Did you shut down iTunes improperly, or disconnect your iPod wrongly? That would explain it.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Go to File > Add Folder To Library > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music (select that folder and click, I think it's "Ok")

If that doesn't work, iDump is good
#16
Either double click this file, or use itunes to open it manually (it should be in your itunes folder)



Hope it helped

happened to me a while ago

click file -> import (or press ctrl+shift+o)
find your "itunes library file" and click open (default directory for this file is in my documents/my music/itunes)

should solve the problem

And folks that's why you should always back up your music

My mate's iPod broke and he didn't back it up, 15,000 songs!!!...
luckily he could still get all the music back

You mean the iTunes Library file has gone, or all your music on your HDD has gone?

Either way, stop using iTunes.
#28
If you have lost all your music I seriously feel sympathy for you (rare in the Pit I know). If I lost my music collection I would not be happy. Even if iTunes lost my files, it would take me weeks to fix the problem. I have about 10,000 songs spread over 200+ different folders (none of them named properly). I really need to fix this before it's too late.

That would be so confusing. I have about 15,000+ songs scattered over... HEAPS of folders, but it's all perfectly organized, capital letters, etc.

Yea + 1 on winamp.

I used to keep all of my music on my ipod as an external drive because my HDD wasnt big enough. Then i dropped my ipod (many times) and some of the files were unreadable. It took me a while to get everything back, but now i have all of my music organized into Artist and Album and i have it in a mirrored 1.5tb network drive So im never going to loose my music.......wait unless there was a fire and both drives burned.....

Haha, yeah that would probably be helpful. A lot of my folders are named things like "sdfjkldsjflkds" or "newmusicgood"....


Edit: No one else but me (and maybe not even) would be able navigate around my computer. It's so unbelievably disorganised it might actually be impossible to correct without swiping the whole thing and starting from scratch.
