Hi All, I am in a predicament. I have a 40GB IPOD Classic, prehistoric yes, but it has roughly 500CDs that I burned on it. As part of a class action lawsuit, I mailed my IPOD to those fine folks at Apple to give me a longer-life battery, who assured me they would not touch anything other than the battery. Since it was returned, there is not a single song on it and the hard drive appears to have been wiped clean. To complicate matters, the PC desktop with the ITunes software from which I burned the 500 CDs has since fried its motherboard, so I can access that PC only through the hard drive that I extracted from it and by accessing it through a different laptop. I dont really care about the PC, it was garbage, but what is the best way to get my music back on to the ipod? I have seen some IPOD recovery services where supposedly they can recover your music--any thoughts/experiences? Is it only possible to repair this issue by repairing the motherboard and getting the PC of origin to work once again? Thanks in advance for your sage advice.
