through the apple store you can re-download your purchases up to 3 times. there's how-to's all over the internet, good luck!!
What are you new? There are things called external hard-drives. $100 for a terrabyte of memory. Oh, man. That is just so not worth all of my music being safe from computer crashes and younger siblings. If you want to be archaic about it, put your music on CD's. It's like this with phone numbers now. Facebook groups (I dropped my phone in the toilet...I need numbers!!!). Phone books! Online backup of your phone books. Put the numbers in excel. YDI for not being prepared and responsible
hey, yeah, too bad bands signed to labels make JACK SHIT from album sales (unless they are independent artists)....up to 98% goes to the label and publishing companies...that's why artists need to tour to promote their albums, it's the only way they can actually make a fucking living from their music. if you think that you are supporting your favorite bands by buying their music, you are living in a delusion...all you are doing is supporting the corporate machine that wants to squeeze every last penny out of you.
I work at Domino records so let me explain this to you: If an artist can't sell records they get dropped. They might have decent live followings, but no sales ultimately means no contract. So if you're saying that buying the music doesn't support the bands, you are sorely mistaken, dick-for-brains.
omggg :| that really sucks, especially if you downloaded them legally
If he downloaded them illegally...then its his damn fault, and he can go re-download them all.
You can set your iTunes to not sync automatically with the iPod. The files are still on there, and can be copied off. They're usually on there as hidden files, and can be drag & dropped back onto your hard drive. When you plug your iPod into the computer, don't sync it with iTunes, but rather go into My Computer, right click on the iPod, and hit "Explore". There's usually a hidden folder on the iPod called "iPod Control". Unhide the folder and its contents, go into it, and find the Music folder. Drag & Drop to your own computer. Done.
Surely it shouldn't delete anything from the iPod just because it hadn't copied all the files to the computer...
Inaccessible maybe, but the data is still there. I don't know what the best way to fix it would be, maybe reinstalling the firmware or something, but if the files were being copied rather than moved or deleted then the data was not actually changing on the iPod itself, and is still there.
