    Hey Guys,

    Last night I was listening to my Ipod and connected it last night to add more songs from one of my cds, then now I am at work and all my songs are gone nothing is on my ipod,

    I don't have the cable or anything with me, becasue I am at work, but why would this happen did I do something wrong, is there something wrong with my ipod.

    Let me know if anyone has had this problem thanks.

    I had exactly the same problem with my 4G. I had to reinstall the firmware countless times and try to slowly re-sync my library. During re-syncing, it kept freezing iTunes so I'd have to just unplug it, restart the frozen iPod, and plug it in again. It'd only do a few hundred songs at a time. :(

    I'm pretty sure it's just the sign of a dying iPod. Maybe it's time we went to an Apple Store and either got it fixed or bought a new one. By the way, now that the library is reloaded, it's been working well...


    ...touch wood. I'm expecting it to completely die soon though.

    I had the exact same problem. I just had to go back to my computer and re upload them once I'd reinstalled the firmware from the Software Updater.

    Yeah, tell me about it. I reckon I'll get a Shuffle next time. I've had too much trouble with the regular iPod.

    looks like I will be exchanging this one, for a new one since this one has given me a couple of problems
