I updated itunes yesterday & lost all my playlists.  Can I transfer the playlists from my iphone/ipod into itunes?

    try this...



    In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder.

    Rename iTunes Library as iTunes Library (Corrupt) and then after you paste in the chosen previous library, it as iTunes Library.


    Start iTunes. Should all be good, except for any recent additions to or deletions to or newly created playlists in your library.



    Follow steps 1 - 2 -3 below

    I've have never ever posted on a forum/help/discussion page before- but this worked perfectly for me


    I'm still a bit sad that I've lost music and playlists added after the last recorded previous library -about 1 month ago - but overall I'm sooooo relieved that my music and playlists are back

    All of my Playlists have gone too since the update, but I can't seem to follow the steps in the image above. I haven't got the file ITunes Library itl' for some reason? Is there anything else I can do?


    I'd appreciate any help, thank you
