    Hello i'm new here, i want to ask if anybody knows how can i restore all my library from my ipod back to my pc. The thing is that my ipod was connected to my computer, i noticed that itunes was working very slowly and i decided to eject the ipod, itunes asked me if i am sure i want to eject the ipod and i accepted. When i retrieved my ipod from the computer i did not have any songs on my 50 gigabytes library.

    BUT, the important thing here is that i checked in the about section of the ipod and it says that there are only 7 gigabytes available (i have a 60 gigabytes ipod), and it also says that i have 0 songs which is a big contradiction. So i'm thinking that my ipod is not displaying the music but somehow it is still on the hardrive because of the information that appears in the about section.

    MY QUESTION; i want to know if anybody knows how to recover ipod data (all my 50 gigabytes library) due to computer crash or unintended delete of ipod library. I read in some sites that the ipod hardrive is constructed in a way that if you unintentionally deleted your library or if your computer crashed and you lost your library, well the information is still on the hardrive of the ipod, i do not know if this is true.

    I also found some expensive software that makes this kind of tasks such as (http://www.recoverdata.co.in/recover-data/ipod-data-recovery-software.html , http://www.recovermyfiles.com/ipod-recovery.php , http://www.datarecoveryipod.com/downloads.html).

    I just want to know if this is possible and if i can do it for free with an alternate method or with some free version or if someone can help me. The thing is that i do not have my music backed because i had my ipod on manual mode so that i deleted every cd that i passed so that i could have free space on my computer.

    So please help.

    Thanks a lot to everyone.

    You might want to try a utility that repairs disk directories.

    And given the number of recent threads with similar problems, I think it would be wise for everyone to learn that you shouldn't keep your only copy of this stuff on the iPod itself. It's too easily lost/stolen/etc. to be the only place to keep data you spent a lot of time collecting.
