I'm an Apple illiterate, mostly. I was messing around with an old iPod mini where some songs seemed to be residing. With iTunes 11.0 that I just downloaded I got to where Manual Syncing was what I wanted to do. After saying yes to the dialog box that said that all songs and so forth would be removed from the iPod, I said "yes" because I assumed that all the songs on the iPod would be backed up onto my computer. Now iTunes has this exclamation mark next to all the songs that were on the iPod. When I click that song for info that might tell me where it is stored it says they are on the iPod. There is nothing on the iPod. Could I have lost these songs forever? Are they on my PC some where?
