John asks…

How do I get my purchased itunes songs back onto itunes after having to delete everything on the computer.?

My computer got a trojan virus about a week ago and we had to delete everything and I’ve been reinstalling programs. I reinstalled itunes and logged on to my account. I can look at my account and purchase history and everything, but when I click to check for any available purchased song downloads, it says everything is already on itunes that I purchased. How do I get my songs?

Justin answers:

You can e-mail them and they’ll put your songs will appear into your available downloads.

Paul asks…

How do you move purchased itunes songs from one library to another?

So my brother has his own itunes library on the same computer, just on a different server, and he ended up purchasing songs from itunes from my library, so i have no clue how to get them on his now, help?

Justin answers:

Try homesharing (a new feature that lets you transfer songs from different computers in the same house) if you can’t figure it out, burn the purchased songs onto an audio cd (put all the purchased songs in a playlist and go to the bottom of itunes when your on the playlist’s page you should see “burn to disc”) Then something will popup, make sure you’ve selected Audio CD, and click ‘begin’ or whatever. Oh, you need a blank disc to burn it onto. You can buy em anywhere (i use memorex brand) After you burn it, take out the disc, close the opened itunes, open his, reinsert the disc, and its like putting any CD onto iTunes

Charles asks…

How to backup only purchased itunes songs on usb?

I am getting a new ipod and i have all my other music backedup just not the purchased ones. and i only have a usb big enough for just my purchased songs. is this possible?

Justin answers:

Download a program called sharepod ( free program) plug your ipod in then extract those songs to a folder on your desktop. Sync the ipod with your new laptop then sync back the songs that you had from the folder with the extracted music back to your ipod

In this case select the songs that you want to have extracted from sharepod when the list populates.

Thomas asks…

My computer crashed, and all my purchased itunes songs are gone. Does anybody know how i can get them back?

Yeah, so does anybody know if there is anything i can do to get my purchased songs back? I never backed up my computer because it was new, but i did buy a lot of songs. So if you know a way get songs you have purchased back on your account then i would really like to know how!

Justin answers:

First try plugging in your iPod like Sam suggested. The instructions for getting the songs out of the ipod are here:

If you didn’t put all your purchases on your iPod, you will have to email apple. Their contact sheet is here:

Hope that helps.

Daniel asks…

How do I redownload purchased songs on iTunes?

So I’ve got about 40 songs already purchased on iTunes, but I got a new computer and I had to reinstall iTunes. How can I download all of the songs already purchased on my account into my new iTunes library.

Justin answers:

You’d have to buy them again to be able to download them. Copy the files from the old computer to the hard drive of the new one then import them to iTunes.

awesome. thanks guys! the search results i was pulling up said something about the music beeing “AAC Protected” and not able to be burnt onto a cd

Justin answers:

YES… I have been doing this for years!!!! And also yes, AAC protected can be burned to a CD also, I have been doing that for years too 🙂

An itunes protected song or songs can be burned on up to 7 cd’s but that is only if the playlist is EXACTLY the same, in same order with all the same songs….But it can be burned an UNLIMITED NUMBER OF TIMES if you just change one little thing on the 8th and up cd you burn.

Trust me I have been doing this since 2003 when the itunes store first came out 🙂

itunes is now selling non-protected (non copyrighted) songs for $1.29 each as opposed to protected tunes that sell for .99 The $1.29 unprotected songs have NO Restrictions.

Joseph asks…

folder just for purchased itunes songs?

I keep all of my music backed up on an external hard drive. All of my songs are backed up except for the ones I bought on itunes. Is there a folder just for purchased songs? I want to copy them onto my external to back them up. I would have to have to go through each artist folder to find all the songs.

Justin answers:

Nope. They all go in the folder (My)Music>iTunes>iTunes Media>iTunes Music>(Artist or compilation). If they were organized any other way, they wouldn’t actually be organized.
