    the same thing happened to me, but, i decided to pull a "no brainer" and thought: would it reappear on my iPhone if i just resynced everything manually? It worked(:

    How to manually sync music to your apple prodoct is very easy. Make sure you have "sync only checked songs and videos" not marked in the apple products summary, then your able to download free music from other itunes accounts by just simply clicking and dragging(but if you have an iPhone, apple has this product set up to NOT do that sadly...) it to the music box undeneath your apple icon.

    Go to your itunes ilbrary, highlight the first song in your library, hold "Shift"and the down arrow key until your at the very bottome of the itunes ilbrary. All of your music is now high lighted and should be blue. hold down the left key on your mouse, and simply drag the music to your apple product, then your music should begin to sync back to your apple product(:

    Hope I've helped some!

    I had this happen to me.All my music dissapeared from 32 gig ipod touch,but showing that i have only 1.6 gigs left.This is an ongoing problem that Apple must address.No one seems to know how to fix this.The Cloud does not have all of my purchases.Audiobooks are lost and cannot be recovered.Ihave reset,restored and restarted,only to have a few podcasts recovered.Wow,over react too much,no under reply too much.

    You will need to be a bit more specific than that. How? What were you doing? Updates? Crash? etc etc etc.

    I hope someone can help. After updating my iPad 2 and my iPhone to the latest I have lost all my music on my iPhone. On top of that I can't get access to my email on my iPad unless I am connected to a wifi. I have my own carrier but it won't respond. What should I do?I also have the iCloud now? Do I have to pay for this. It is normal to get the iCloud when u update to the latest software? Tks

    Try posting in the iTunes and iPhone forums. You might get more help there. Also you will still have all your music on your backup drive.


    Good luck

    Is your user folder gone too?


    10.7.4 is doing weird stuff.


    I have external drives, and with 7.4, unplug one (eject) and the whole disc management system fails. As in, other discs disappear, and then my MBP starts freezing one thing at a time.


    This should normally not be an answer - BUT - Plug everything in the way it was the last time your setup functioned. Restart. Check to see if you have a User Folder with all of your stuff in it. Yes - Repair Permissions. WAIT for apple to fix 10.7.4 - there are about 20,000 posts on the first few pages of just this OS section, so I imagine something major in the fixing department is coming soon.


    BTW - I had to do the above earlier, because my User folder was empty, but said 0 files using 279 GB

    If your music is gone from your iphone/ipad, it should be super easy to restore.  Plug your phone in, go onto Itunes obviously.  Then click on "Music" under "My devices."  Where your music list is normally displayed, it will be empty.  So go to the bottom of the screen where your music normally is and click on "Autofill From:" and choose "purchased."  On the far right side, click "Autofill" and all of your music should start uploading back onto your device.  It worked for me and took less than 2 minutes.  Good luck!
