My 12 year old Sony Vaio laptop bit the dust. I can't get it to start. I even took it to an expert. Simple fact: it's dead! I knew this day would come. I will eventually get a new laptop, but I am wondering if the rumors are true about Itunes being finished. Since I can't open my laptop, my Itunes (which had my entire collection) is also unable to be accessed. I do have my entire collection in CD form, so that is essentially my music backup. I should note that most of my music listening is done on Ipod, so I like to sync music in and out of my Ipod (Which I obviously can't do right now). I know it will be quite a long process to re-burn my collection to itunes on another laptop, or use another program. I'm prepared to do this. I just want to know about any options (I don't keep up on the latest technology). I actually like Itunes as a music storage program, especially it's compatibility with Ipods (which I also love) but I'm thinking it is going to be completely phased out (If it hasn't been already). Two other things: I'm NOT a Mac user and I don't stream. Thanks in advance for any advice on the options out there.
