Hi,
I once bought a load of music with iTunes then after a while my computer got messy so I wiped the computer.
I have no music in my itunes now.
How do I get my music back?
Thanks!

Hmmm, there are a few things you can do, but only under certain circumstances.

If you've made a backup, copy the files back in, but I'm sure you would have done that already.

If all your songs are purchased, you can access your account or write an email to apple asking how you can access all your purchases. A really tedious way to do this would be buy all the music you lost back for free, but i doubt you remember it all.

Also, if you have the music on your iPod, you can sync it and then choose Transfer Purchases when it asks you what you want to do...

If none of these scenarios match your problem, then sorry, I think you're out of luck...

Apple usually says tough luck. They remind you to back up your music since it can't be re downloaded.
