    OK is there a way to import my all my old smart(and not smart) playlist to my new itunes? And is there a way to get back my "star" ratings and "ammount time played"?

    Here's what I did. I redid windows with a new harddrive. WIthout thinking, I just installed itunes and copied my ipod music folder over to a new harddrive (different drive letter). Next I plugged my ipod in. Said its not aurthrized for this computer. So I tell it ok to do so. Ops. It formats my ipod and copies my songs over. Ok not a bad thing...
    Now... I noticed all my smart playlists and normal playlists are gone (like no duh). And my "star" ratings and "ammount times played" for a song is also gone. The last two things hurt. As that screws me up in making my play lists for all my "5 star" songs, and also for most times played playlist.

    Is there a way to correct this?
