    I recently bought a new laptop. My old one i no longer use. How do i transfer my data and have it appear on the ipod as it was. I do not wish to alter anything or rearrange my files.

    first thing u gotta do is back up ur all itunes contents (User-music-itunes)
    then paste it in ur new computer then double click the itunes library
    (itunes-itunes library)

    I did that...
    There was a question mark next to all my songs. I'm assuming their location was not found as ofcourse it is a new computer and they aren't there.
    The applications were also lost. Do i have to re-download them all?
