I had a MacBook Pro, where all my music CD's were downloaded to. This was synced with my iPad, and all the CDs which were on the MacBook are still on my iPad. My MacBook collapsed completely, and was unusable, and as it was file vaulted, the info could not be transferred from the old hard drive onto the new one, on my brand new mac mini. Not a problem really, as I back up most of my files to an external hard drive as well. However, ITunes was not backed up, as everything was on the iPad. However, I have now synced my iPad with iTunes on the new computer, but none of the CDs Which are on my iPad have transferred - only the one CD I bought from iTunes. Is there any way of transferring this music from my iPad to my new mac mini, which I don't have an optical drive for at the moment.
And while I'm on this issue, is there a way of removing the old MacBook pro from my allowed computers - I think you are only allowed to sync with a limited number of computers, and I am currently upgrading my old iBook, so that I still have a laptop, for the odd occasions when the iPad isn't enough. So I'd really like to remove the now defunct MacBook Pro.
