    loss of music on iTunes

    I had about 2000 CD's which I copied to my iPod. In 2007 we lost our house to fire and lost all the cd's. However I have been able to recover them from my iPod onto iTunes on the new iMac i bought after the fire. Now I am reading that Apple has been canceling any music on iTunes not purchased at Apple. I am reluctant to synch the iPad again to iTunes in order to add more of my music to the iPad. I don't want to loose all the music collection we have from the 50's through the 90's that we have cherished. How can I protect them?

    loss of music on iTunes

    This is news to me....where have you seen this? Seeing iTunes has built-in functionality to rip cd tracks to it's library, I find this very hard to believe.

    News to me also! All of my music is still there...

    Having all your music on an iPod with no backup device is a scary proposition. All devices with a hard disc as the main memory are bound to fail at some point! Even an iMac... I'd suggest finding a way to store that music safely somewhere. Use a PC to extract the music and put it on a Network Attached Storage hd. I use two of them.

    If Apple suddenly decided to erase my collections they would lose this client and all my equipment would wind up in the recycling bin. I would restart anew with some other company. I'm not alone feeling this way and they know it.

    In this case, you may try iOS data recovery programs to retrieve your lost music, which is easier and safer. I think Bitwar Data Recovery can be a good option because of its powerful function, high quality, and user-friendly wizard. Try it.
