If the tracks are playing on your iPod, copy them back to your laptop with something like this:

cant anyone out there help me with this ?
It sounds to me as if you are describing a corrupt hard drive ?
Try one of the disk checker applications to see if you can recover the files.
R-Studio is a good one, I have used it in the past.
It sounds like you deleted the original mp3 file when you emptied your Limewire Library.

In iTunes Preferences > 'Advanced' is 'Copy files to iTunes media folder when adding to Library' ticked? This will make a copy of the original mp3 file in your iTune's Music Folder: you can then delete the mp3 file in your Limewire Library without losing the actual music file.
Alternatively, search your laptop for the missing mp3 file: it may just be somewhere other than the iTunes Music Folder...
