Does anyone know how I can clear out all of my itunes on my pc and then reload itunes and transfer all of the music from my ipod back in? Also I would like to use the latest itunes version but the songs skip during play and I'm not sure if that's an issue with my pc or itunes.

    Your question is a little confusing... but, I don't think you can (easily) do what you want. Technically, it is not possible to take the music FROM an iPod and put it ONTO a computer using iTunes. iTunes does that specifically to combat music piracy (so you can't go to your friend's hous and dump all your ipod music onto his PC.) There ARE ways around that but... this list would not condone a thread on circumventing iTunes' security features.

    If, however, you just want to re-create your iTunes library, that is easy. You can merely click on your iTunes library, choose "select all" from the Edit menu, and then choose "Delete" if iTunes asks you if you want to delete the actual audio files from your PC, choose no. You just want to clear your iTunes library. NOW, you can simply choose "Add folder to library" and navigate to your specified music directory.
