Condition 2: You are able to backup iTunes music from iPod

Think about where the songs in your iTunes come from. Unlike the ones you bought from the iTunes Store, your CD ripped music is not that easy to re-obtain since it may cost you both time and effort to rip them again. However, if you have a decent solution that can backup & recover the music from iPod to iTunes, you have a good reason to delete iTunes music library or even quit it completely.
