    Well, have you put all your iTunes library material back on your computer (along with your Library files)? That's the first step.

    If all your music is on the drive, and your Library xml file has the right paths to everything you're fine.

    If you sync your iPod to your computer and you're missing files, the iPod won't export them to fill in the holes in your library. Not normally anyway, there are ways you can pull stuff off your iPod in an emergency, but if you have backups it's probably just easier to drag your videos from your backup discs back into iTunes as new.

    After all that's what backups are for, right?
