    Hi all

    I have an iPod (Click Wheel) (4th gen?) which is failing / has failed. Attached are the helpful messages from OS X.

    Now, I'm guessing there is no way back... But wondered if anyone can recommend a program, or something, anything..., which may let me access the disk in some way to pull any data off that may still be intact?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Try something like Senuti to see if you can access it. Then, you'll probably have to restore it.

    You can try Disk Warrior.

    Restore it but that won't recover your data but might let you stretch the life a little longer. I would not put any data on it that I don't have backup though, since this might be HD problem (all things die eventually no matter what).
