IPod and system recovery

After restoring data from a backup following a system recovery of Vista (32 bit), the iTunes playlists are intact but iTunes will not fetch the 12 gigs of music in the playlists from where all my music is stored in MP3 format on an external hard drive. Is there a process to have iTunes retreive the playlist songs from the external drive or would I be obligated to reload them one at a time into the playlists (ugh)? If I choose not to reload individual songs, can I still create new playlists for my iPod and just sync the new lists without wiping out the previous music on my iPod? I'm worried that any type of iPod sync will erase the songs not currently in the computer's iTunes library.

    I figured I could do it manually, but sometimes I don't trust myself and needed confirmation I wouldn't wipe out my music as soon as I connected.

When you syncronize it should show you all the songs then you should be able to save them individually or all at once , but ofcourse that will take a little while
but it should work fine
let me know if you need more help

    as long as you still have enough room then it shouldn't erase any of your playlists

  • jason Oct 26, 2008

    also you should be able to synchronize any play list on your ipod without erasing any other play list

Lost all contacts on iPad mini


If the important contacts in iPad get deleted, you will try to get them back. Restoring iPad with the iTunes backup is the easiest way to recover deleted contacts on iPad mini. If you update your iPhone backups regularly, then you can recover most of the important data from the backup. The restoring process is also easy to be done, and the following tutorial is for the new users of iOS devices:
  1. Connect iPad mini to computer with USB cable, and iTunes will launch automatically. If not, you should manually start iTunes.
  2. iTunes will recognize iPhone and display the iPad icon at the upper left corner. Click the iPad icon.
  3. The control panel of iPhone appears after you click the iPad icon. Click Summary in the panel.
  4. Click Restore Backup in the right part of the window. Then iTunes will allow you to choose the iPad backup, and finish the restore.

How to restore my ipod nano 5 using itunes


To restore iPhone/iPad/iPod from iTunes backup, you should connect your iOS device (all types of iPhone/iPad/iPod are applicable, now take the iPhone as an example) with the computer which you have ever synced. Then you have two methods to enter the recovery window - "Restore from Back up".
Method 1 Click "File" menu on the menu bar and select Devices > Restore from Back up

Method 2 Click the "Devices" button on the left sidebar, then your connected device will be shown, and then click your device to show the Summary tab, and select Backups > This computer > Restore Backup...

After finishing either one of the two methods above, you will see a popped-up window - "Restore from Back up" and all the iTunes backups of different iOS devices you have ever done via iTunes will be listed in the drop-down menu. Then choose a backup of your iPhone to restore iPhone from iTunes backup.

How to restore an iPod


If you have a backup before, go onto iTunes, right click on your device on the left-hand side bar, and their should be an option 'Restore From Backup', or something similar, click that and it'll restore your iPod to a previous backup.

iPod Data Recovery software can help you, it enables you preview and recover all contents from the iTunes' backup file, including your iPod photos, videos, notes, calendar and contacts.

How can I restore data accidentally deleted from my iPhone?


if you have synced your iPhone to iTunes on a computer before and have not synced it after you deleted your data, you can get it back. But iTunes can't help.

You need to get a third party iPhone data recovery software like Tenorshare iTunes Data Recovery, which helped me recover deleted data from iPhone 4s before.

You can get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/itunes-data-recovery.htm
