My motherboard on my PC fried a couple of months ago, and I had to get it replaced. In short, I lost my entire iTunes library, everything. iTunes was still on my computer, and all my songs were displayed on iTunes, but everytime I clicked one I would get the exclamation sign and something about the file not being able to be located. It then gave me the option to locate the file myself, but it was useless, since the files were erased due to the computer crashed. My iTunes library was still on my iPod, but not on my computer.
