    Hello,

    This is somewhat related to another thread. I forgot to backup my itunes when fresh-installed win7, and I had to re-authorize computer. Now I have a couple questions:

    1. Even though I already authorize the "new pc (aka win7)", every time I connect my touch/iphone, I got a message: "The ipod "..." is synced with another iTues library. Do you want to erate this iPod and sync with this iTues library"". I know I can check "Do not ask me again" then click cancel, but how to fundamentally fix this, i.e., tie my touch/iphone to the current iTunes?

    2. I have some movies stored on the touch. How to transfer them back to the library on the PC? I see it got backed-up but not sure where to look for the videos...

    Thank you for your help!

    That sounds a little cumbersome... So I can't simply use iTunes to do that?? If the ipod are being backed-up, are those files stored somewhere on my pc?

    Thanks!

    They arent anymore since you formatted your HDD during the reinstall.

    I meant when I connect my ipod to the pc it says backup... Where does it backup the media files on my ipod to?
