Due to an admitted error on my part I recently allowed my library to be deleted when i thought I was just restoring system software. The error being I should ahve backed it up, I was NOT erasing the HD or anything. My whole collection was destroyed, playlists and all. I lost over $60 in purchased itunes music and lot's and lot's and lot's of time on playlists from my cd's and that music. My ipod still has everything as it was and I'll keep it that way for a while without updating. Can anyone show me how to update the ipod without erasing the old lists/songs? Does anyone know how I can get stuff back? I haven't called apple, but their policy is pretty clear on "1 download only". I would want to argue that the system knows what I've purchased and I should get my three copies, but they WERE very clear. Is it possible to restore someway from the ipod? This was very discouraging, made me glad most of my stuff was backed up on data cd's, but also makes me reconsider using itunes if I can't get my purchased material back. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
