    Probably not, but I however have never experienced this issue. Definitely not new in iOS 5 if that's what you're asking.

    Never. You might want to organize your music, and make sure it's all in the same place. Consolidate your music.

    This should be something that you should be able to ask Siri.

    EDIT:

    Looks like Apple is anti-motoleo. They are deleting your iPhone apps too. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1317622

    Your iPod Touch is broken: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1317094

    Hope you get your issues fixed.

    Once on my phone, but it was really more of an error between the chair and keyboard, not itunes.

    It is possible that there is a a PEBKAC error. You are not syncing correctly or something. If the music is on your computer and it's legit music, the problem is you.

    I had it happen several times this week. I spent about 10 hours on Monday trying to figure out what was happening. Three times I connected and my music was gone.

    I also had a problem syncing 158 music videos purchased in iTunes. Putting a check mark in the box labeled since music videos only synced some of them. I created a playlist for those videos to sync and only a few would sync with that. I then selected both options to sync the videos and this time all 158 synced but then I had two copies of the videos.

    I finally fixed the music video problem by selecting manually manage music and videos and dragging the music video playlist to my phone. All 158 videos synced. I then set the phone to automatically sync and the videos stayed.

    5.0.1 has lots of bugs....or is it iTunes?

    iTunes is overly difficult. It shouldn't be that hard.

    I use Copytrans. I highly recommend it.

    Never. No, I didn't write the software, but I can read.

    As I can. My problems had nothing to do with being able to read or not.

    I would've never thought that pressing the sync button would delete all my music. iTunes is toxic to your iPod.

    Never. I got confused when iTunes tried to delete all my music upon syncing on another computer, but then I just got used to the habit of always drag-and-dropping contents to my iPod.

    iTunes has done some really weird things (especially crashing my PC), but it hasn't yet deleted my music from anything - iPods, iPhone or iPad.

    Or maybe we're telling the truth. Is that so hard to believe?
