Okay, I have iTunes, and I have an iPad. Not every song I had was actually purchased through iTunes, some of them were acquired over time.
Ok, so here is my dilemma. A few months ago my computer - the source computer for where I plug my iPad when I want to sync, was affected by a virus, and it wouldn't start up. I haven't synced my iPad ever since.
My computer guy called me tonight and said that he was able to finally get the computer going, but many of the folders and programs were corrupted, including the iTunes folder. However, he was able to save the songs.
I had been doing home sharing with another computer, but I was wondering if there was any way to turn another computer into the source computer... perhaps after I move all of the songs that he saved, to it? I find it to be odd that Apple would ensure that only source computer can be used.
