Cd IPod Files Lost

So last night, my itunes said it was getting overloaded so i started recycling a few old files which i then proceeded to delete. then i deleted a couple of programs that my computer said that it rarely used. when i restarted it, my itunes would not play any of the songs as it said the original files could not be located. when i searched music on my computer, the only files it can pull up are ones purchased through emusic, none through itunes or cds. i know that if i sync the ipod to the computer i will lose everything, so what do i do from here? i saw there are some programs online for recovering lost files to itunes for seventy dollars, but these are probably a scam right? in that case, is there a way to perhaps back up the hard drive on my ipod which still contains all of these files so that if my ipod breaks i do not lose everything? that is what i am most worried about. if i have to buy a new ipod and start a new library i could deal with that, just as long as i know i am going to have the old files.....any ideas?
thank you so much......

Ipod Lost Music

Hello, it sounds like a file association problem. When you say you've lost the tracks from CD, do you mean the tracks that you have ripped from a CD onto your PC?

If that's the case, then they should still be there!? Do the programs that you removed have anything to do with the way you either ripped or played your tracks?
I don't personally use iTunes or the iPod so I don't know a great deal, only that what you download must be played on apples' software/hardware.

But if I can find out what has happened to your other tracks it may help to point us in the right direction and solve the problem with your iPod.

the easiest way to recover your files that i know of would be to uninstall iTunes, then follow this tutorial:
and install iTunes again after the files are safely saved.
