Use your backup copy of your computer ( files/music/pics/docs/etc) to move the music to your new computer.
If for some reason you have failed to maintain a backup ( not good), then you can transfer itunes purchases from an ipod: File>Transfer Purchasespowerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Time Capsule, iphone 3gs, iphone 4, ipod, ipod touch

I had all of the songs on my iphone, of which I recently dropped it water and it is now dead too. My luck lately! That is how I noticed that my songs were no longer there, when I went to put them on my new phone. Thanks for the input. Looks like I will be repurchasing some songs..........and backing up!Gateway, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedNov 27, 2010 4:51 PM (in response to LSU1202)I'm sorry for piggy-backing on this topic, but I don't have any other link by which to post my question. Anyhow, I purchased a new computer and installed Itunes, signed in, and found that ALL of my music, both purchased and imported, was completely missing. I then checked the Itunes program on the other computer that was replaced and found that the music on that computer was missing also. Can anyone help, please? Come on, Apple, these constant problems are getting really old and tiring.Sony Vaio, Windows 7
