So I had to restore my iPod for who knows what reason. Before I did, I backed it up to my external drive using the program Carbon Copy Cloner. Now, when I look at that drive on my Macbook, it - predictably - indicates that the 25 GB that should be backed-up music is in use, but I can't see the files, much like if I had opened a finder window via the iPod icon on my desktop. I can't see it via any method of "open," "import" or whatever through iTunes, but I may just be trying the wrong thing? Anyway, hopefully someone knows a way to access these files. I'd like to keep the music, but even just to delete it without having to reformat the external drive would be nice. Another weird thing happened: The image that used to appear on my desktop when I plugged in my drive was the standard hard drive image. Now it's an iPod image. Not sure if that's significant at all.
