    The problem basically started out because my computer broke down, and we needed to get all our files saved onto a disk. We got a new computer, but the disk which was storing all my files for my ipod -including the music and photo files- got lost. So I decided I would just download iTunes again, and put all the music on it from the CD's again. However, when I downloaded iTunes again, the file which should contain the photos (which, if I am correct, should be located in the *My Pictures folder) did not appear. I cannot figure out how to get this file to appear or how to make a new one or if it is even possible... Does anyone know how to fix this? Cause I would really like to put pictures on my iTouch again. :(

    I assume you are using a PC? You mentioned a "My Pictures" folder. This is a default folder that Windows sets up on your hard drive, along with folders like "My Documents," "My Videos," etc. Did you make a backup of those folders? If you have the backup, copy the files from the backup onto your new computer's hard drive. If you don't have a backup, I'm sorry, but I'm afraid your pictures are gone. iTunes doesn't manage your pictures -- it just copies them from the "My Pictures" folder (or any other folder that you select) and put them on your iPod.
