Happy New Year Everyone

Unfortunately I lost a hard disk over Christmas and lost my iTunes library. I have an old backup but since purchasing an iPad have been remiss at making a backup (as I have music, videos, films and pictures on my iPad, iPhone, iPod, etc).

There is an option to sync/transfer purchases from my iPad to itunes (the restored version) but it fails to recognise any purchases on my iPad other than a couple of albums. I have legally bought books, movies and music so find this strange.

I know I should take more regular backups so please don't post any smart alec responses 'you should have backed up more frequently', and yes, I work in IT and should know better.

Humble pie now eaten, please can someone help? I did read someone on an apple forum about deleting itunes or an xml file and starting afresh, does anyone have any detail on this or a link?

BTW Apple themselves have confirmed they can reload my library from purchases as a measure of last resort.

Thanks in advance for any help
