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.
