    apple specifically tells you to back them up because if you have a hard disk failure, you are screwed.

    Do you have an iPod? If so, maybe your 50 songs are all on the iPod. You can get them off the iPod and onto the new HD.

    If not, then you are screwed. I guess you could go onto a P2P site and download the songs you lost. It'll still be illegal, but to me, it's not ethically wrong.

    In the future, back up your stuff. That reminds me, I need to back up my Quicken files.

    Apple discourages it, but there's a feedback form on apple.com/support somewhere, and if you plead really really nicely, they might let you re-download them. What kind of computer was it?
