How do I recover lost iTunes songs?
That's not necessarily true. I got rid of my MacBook Air. And went with the iPad Air 2.
Sometimes my music on my phone errors out on my car stereo.
So, in the past when I had the Mac. I would remove the music from the phone, sync with iTunes, and install them again.
That fixed the problem. Now, I am having the same problem.
So I delete the music manually on my phone. Now, it is showing only 21 songs. I know I have purchased 56.
Yet, I cannot find the complete collection anywhere.
So now, 35 songs are missing, and I have no idea how to get them back.
And my apologies, I did not subscribe to iTunes Match.
But I did not want to start a new thread for a similar subject. Thanks for any help
Edit: I did discover that the missing songs were purchased through Amazon Cloud.
The problem is, without a PC or MAC. The music is forever stuck on the iPad.
The Amazon MP3 downloader does not work on the iPad.
So, to my knowledge. There is no way to import the songs to iTunes.
The Amazon music app lets you export your music from iTunes, which is nice.
But playing it on your car stereo is another story.
That's what I like about the iPhone, and iTunes.
The phone acts as an iPod which I like. But Apple needs to release their grip a little.
Not everyone has or wants a PC or MAC.
Without one, you're up the creek without a paddle when it comes to buying or importing music anywhere else but iTunes.
