I'm new to this but I need help with my 4th Gen ipod. I'm a PC user and it recently crashed (hmm no surprise there then) unfortunately I lost all my songs in the process - they are all on the ipod though. I had to do a clean re-install of XP but I now I have the dilemma of how I'm supposed to get the songs off the ipod back into itunes. I read a post before that said if itunes is empty when I connect my ipod all the songs will be wiped off, is there anyway round this? Please help!
