Missing songs and restoration

My wife has done something!! Her Ipod cntains all of her cd's which she imported into Itunes and also a number of trakcs she has purchased from itunes store. However, itunes contains nothing - when connecting her ipod back to the mac it says she can synch purchased content back to the library. but the imported songs do not reappear on the mac. There is no way I want to re-import hundreds of CD's again (especially as they are now in the attic). What could have caused this and what are my options here? Can we copy the files off of the ipod onto the mac and then re-import them?

Any ideas. BTW she swears she did nothing and who am I to argue?
