    So I just realized 10.4.1.10 doesn't let you back up your iTunes library to discs anymore, only to an external hard drive, which really sucks because I don't have one. Do any of you know a method to back up the entire library to discs? (apps, music, books, etc) I've read about sync toy but it seems a tad confusing. I was thinking about restoring my computer to an earlier date, before I updated iTunes, in hopes of my old iTunes version would show up. Would that work? Reason for all of this is because I need to reformat my computer and the only thing I need to back up is my iTunes library. Running Win7 32-bit. Any help? :(

    No thanks.
    iTunes Match = $25/yr.
    iCloud services = $??/mo/yr
    Back up discs = free.

    Anyone else?

    How large is your library that you're trying to back-up?
