    In that case I think the only way to put them on your new iTunes is to import the CDs again. You can make a backup of your iTunes library on a CD and import that, but I think that must be what you tried already with the memory stick. With the old Classic iPod you could easily transfer the music because the iPod acted like a memory chip, but with iPhones and the iPod Touch I think you can only easily transfer the music straight from the iPod if you bought the music on iTunes.

    Sorry I can't be of more help!

    It means there's an error. It can sometimes be that your song is in a different folder to the one iTunes is looking in - have you checked that your music is in the iTunes music folder in your files? If it's not that it could just be that there's an error in transferring the files, making them unplayable.
