I turned on my computer and opened iTunes to find all my music is gone

Has anyone else experienced this? Anyway to retrieve it?

I can;t bear to lose all my music...I've lost or don't have many of the CDs that were uploaded on there.

ARGH!

Are the files still on your computer? If they are, just go onto iTunes and click 'Add Folder to Library' and select your music folder.

If they aren't...check your recycle bin. If they're not there, system restore.

Won't recover deleted files. Might work though.

STOP!

This happened to me today as well.

My Library actually damaged itself.

I just clicked "add folder" and clicked on my iTunes Music folder and then just let it reload. I have all my music saved properly though. If you don't you'll have to add it all again, bit by bit.

Well, the recycle bin part will. If you recover the files from there, THEN add them back into iTunes it'll be fine.

I went through my whole computer folder by folder and found all my music.

Took a while but I got it all, plus I found some new music.

Thanks for all your help, I have helped prove that UG can be helpful

Wut? How could you find "new music," it's your computer, right?

Hey y'all!!! Me and my friend were over at her house. I we were wonder what guys think when they see a hot girl at the mall or whatever walk by. (We're both pretty as y'all would say "blonde" sometimes).

My brother uses it too, so I found some music he uploaded but didn't put in iTunes.

LIES AND HERESY!

Happened to me once and ever since then, I back up all my music on CD's and my mp3. I suppose that is the price for using ****ty I-Tunes. If you need any music mate, I'll send you some.

Use sharepod for puting music and WMP for playing music off your computer. It's really not that bad once you get used to it!

itunes just wants you to buy all the music
off them thats why they do a yearly
deletion of library crash.

More money for itunes YAY!


Umm...no. If you buy songs and something goes wrong with the library, you can download them free of charge.

I haven't actually tried it for converting because Musicmatch has such a versatile and great converter, but for sound quality and tweaking options to make the music play at optimum sound quality without the size, it's pretty damn impressive.

My library is damaged everytime I switch off my computer. That's why I always export the library before shutting down iTunes. Then I just replace the new libraries created in the My Music folder.
