I have a ton of purchased music on my ipod. My computer was hit by lightning. I had a backup and restored my itunes data to the new computer. It can not find any of my purchased stuff, and it will not let me sync my purchased music to the computer.

I have a lot of purchased music on my iPod. My computer was hit by lightning, but I had an offsite backup. I restored my iTunes data to the new computer. My purchased songs are listed in iTunes, but iTunes can not find them, and I can not locate them with a SEARCH of my hard drive. iTunes will not allow me to copy my purchased stuff to the new computer, and it will not sync them. Is there any way to create a backup at this point? (Very frustrating).


Thanks very much for any help you can offer.

iPod nano, Windows 7
