    my laptop was stolen and i have since bought a new one, however all my app's, contacts, pdf's, movies, calendar, notes, music and playlists were on the original laptop and now only exist on my ipod.

    so, without having to start all over again on what will be a herculean task, is it possible to copy all my 'stuff' from my ipod to my new computer??????????

    thanks in advance

    If you buy a new computer, you have a couple of options:
    • Get in touch with Apple Support and explain what happened. They'll let you download everything for free.
    • Some of the things will be copied over from your iPod whenever you first sync. Just hit 'Transfer Purchases.'

    That should get almost all of your things back to you. Then, when you have iTunes set up, you should deactivate all computers registered with your iTunes, so the thief can't use your music/apps/movies on his iPod or iTunes. Also, I'd change your iTunes password, since there is a possibility the thief can get into that as well.

    Good luck!

    Not unless you select 'Transfer Purchases.'

    There are also other pieces of software online that you can buy to take everything off an put it on the computer.
