My hard drive crashed and I lost all my data. I had previously backed up both my iTunes and MM library files so I have that to work with.
I want to know if I use something like iPod Access to copy my music back to my computer, if it will be possible to restore my metadata. I am mostly wanting my date added, play count, and ratings to be restored. I know the date added will probably be the most difficult. I have a script for MM that maps the file's date created field in Windows to the date added field in MM, but I don't know if that information is retained on an iPod? I have a large library so my biggest concern is that if I restore my music, it will be renamed differently and my library backups won't be able to find the files easily.
Any guidance would be appreciated!

You can copy files back from iPod: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... rticleid=3 I doubt you'll have any luck with Added and Play History data.
