How do I move apps, music to a new computer

So, I just ordered an iPad 2. Yay

However, I also just upgraded my laptop from vista to windows 7

This created a small problem. Even though I copied everything onto a portable hard drive, when I drag and dropped the file to iTunes, my playlists were gone and while the apps are there, I'm thinking they're not updated. Meaning all the info that was stored in some of the apps is gone.

When I try to sync my iPhone 3GS, it warns me that the computer is going to over ride the phone. Not good!

While I can live with not synching my iPhone music in some respects, I'm wondering how I'll be able to get music from cd's again.

So, on top of this comes the iPad..I'm slightly stressed.
