    I had all my purchased itunes stuff on my Aluminum Mac and it crashed after 6 months of ownership. Is there anyway to recover all my iTunes stuff????

    Define "crash" since it could mean that the hard drive failed or that some other non-drive part (logic board, GPU, etc) bit the dust.

    If the hard drive not pining for the fjords or passed on, isn't no more or ceased to be, expired and gone to meet 'is maker, a stiff, bereft of life, resting in peace, pushing up the daisies, kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile! then it may be possible to connect it as a remote drive to another computer.

    the hardrive is done for. I went to the Apple store and they said that they would need to replace it. In my haste I forgot to ask if anything could be done to save all my purchased itunes stuff.

    Any ideas??

    I've heard if you ask apple support really nicely, they may allow you to redownload all of your purchased items once.

    Can I suggest you pick up an external hard drive and use it for time machine.

    Buy this for $100, plug it in, answer yes to the time
    machine question, and forget about it. It will automatically back up everything. Never worry about losing your data (iTunes, pictures, documents) again.
