I apologize in advance for the long post....


My harddrive in my laptop died.  Ive replaced it, Im up and running again, Ive installed Itunes (its changed a lot from the version I was use to using).

Here is where my troubles begin, before I start, I have autorized this computer with the new hard drive.  Now I will list mmy questions below.


1. My purchased music is in the cloud.  How can i download it to my pc?

2. My entire music collection is on my ipod, many of the songs are ripped cds from my cd collection almost half.  How can i get those songs off of my ipod and into itunes? If I sync all those songs will be erased. 


3. My wife has an apple id as do I.  SOme songs she bought with her account some i bought with mine but i always kept all the songstogether in one itunes music folder.

Is that a problem? 


4. My playlists are on my ipod not in itunes since the playlists where lost on my old harddrive. can those playlists be copied from the ipod to itunes?


I cant figure out how to do anything with this new version of itunes. Apple makes is so difficult to do anything, Its almost unmanagebale. I hate it. Im one step closer to leaving itunes for Google Play or Amazon. 


Thanks for any help.

iPod classic, Windows 7
