Re: Lost CD & DVD drive
In rare cases, your CD or DVD drive may simply "disappear" or suddenly vanish from your computer under Windows XP, despite the fact it had been previously installed. Perform the following simple steps to recover your lost drive. This is VERY easy.

You are using an Apple iPod? so all your music that you purchased from the iTunes store is still on your account in the iTunes store.
Use your computer to log into iTunes. Use your Apple ID & Password to look at your account and see your previous purchases.
In future always keep a copy of your music on your computer or USB Stick or External Hard Drive or CD or DVD.
Simply insert a CD into your computer and open up iTunes(if you have not yet downloaded iTunes, download it here). iTunes will automatically ask you if you want to import the CD to your iTunes library, say yes.
Hope this helps!
The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
Basicly you simply need the itunes, and then your music, witch is on your ipod and your itunes account? so I think you simple have to install itunes, login, plug the ipod in and everything should work as before. Might be a bit difrent if the itunes program has been updated from your previous version.
I think you can order a new cd from apple if you need one.
If you install the itunes version 7.5 that you downloaded, you wont lose your music library. It is a separate file from the programs installation files. You don't need to uninstall the previous version, the new one will install on top of it.
