Will updating itunes erase my music
My old songs are still there, but, when I try to add a new song to a playlist, it doesn't appear on my device.
However, when I look at my device on i Tunes, it shows up as on my device.
Navigate to the location of the folder on your hard drive, right-click on it and select the "Copy" option from the context menu.
Navigate to the folder or drive where you'd like to place the backup, right-click and select the "Paste" option to create your i Tunes library backup. Open the Start menu and click "Control Panel." Click the "Uninstall a program" link and select i Tunes from the list of installed programs.
You might want to test your backup on a new device (borrow one from a friend) before your upgrade yours to see how your exact data does on the current "latest" OS.
Apple has detailed instructions for that, so have a look at them.
Just a matter of copying and pasting, it’s that simple.
All the content on your i Pod is at stake, because syncing it with another computer will erase everything. Your scenario can be either: The computer with which you used to sync your i Pod has died, and you can no longer sync it because a new computer won’t accept it.
Or, you simply want to move your entire i Tunes library to a new computer and eliminate the risk of losing everything when you sync with it.
