I borrowed someone's iPod over the weekend. I connected it to computer in order to copy all the music files using third party software (PodView) It copied a couple of gigs, and a few minutes later the process stopped suddenly. The program closed and i got the typical message you get when an App unexpectedly quits. I thought nothing of it... until i noticed all the files on the iPod were deleted. I started stressing but realized that the files were actually still in the iPod, the iPod just didn't recognize them. I know this because when i went into Settings-About it said that there were 7.7GB of memory used up. It classified it as 'other' but i know that it is the music files. Does anyone know how to get the music files and fix this problem before my friend finds out??
