quick iPad question

Hi

I have a first generation iPad.

The computer that it is connected to via iTunes was recently infected with a virus.

My computer guy may be able to save the music files. He may be able to install a new OS on that computer.

However, I'm not sure how this would help me in terms of syncing my iPad again. I don't want to lose everything that's on my iPad now simply because Apple is stingy about such things.

Thanks!

You should be able to re-download everything as long as you have your account information. Me and my wife have had the same account for several years through multiple computers.

Re: quick iPad question

Are the music files currently on your iPad at all?

yes

But I have a feeling that if I sync it with another computer even with my own iTunes account, I'll lose any songs I didn't buy from iTunes, which is almost all of them

Re: quick iPad question

That has never been a problem for me. I have plenty of songs on iTunes that I acquired elsewhere.
