    Hi, i have an ipod touch 2g with 5.51GB of songs in my itunes now. So my question is how do i backup the list/library (i mean which option under library menu) and after i formatted my pc then i can just restore it WITHOUT editing the songs name/info/album photo?

    thanks

    The easiset way is to copy the entire iTunes folder and then replace the one on your new computer with the one you copied

    I tryed something like that a while ago, and didn't work
    I imported the whole music forlder, plus the itunes library files, but iTunes couldn't find the mp3 files in my new computer

    So you didn't actually back up your music from your old computer? If not you need to get an app to import the music from the iPod to your new computer and then import to iTunes.
