My play list's are gone form my i-tunes library. They still appear on my i-pod. I bought 4 songs yesterday and they didn't sync to my i-pod? Any help. In people language. I'm not a computer geek.

iPod classic, Windows Vista

    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash

    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping. In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.




    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.


    When you get it all working make a backup!


    If by some freak accident all your media and/or library backups are gone then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.
