Error-69 in iTunes

iTunes, developed by Apple Inc., not only as an entertainment application but also to act as an interface between a computer and the iPod and iPhone. It is the sole software which allows you to organize data and other things on the iPod.

One might say "so what if the songs get deleted? You can always re-load them" While this is a good idea if you have a back-up from where you can reload the songs, most people don't keep back-ups!!! We just take it for granted that 'nothing will go wrong if I'm careful'!!
