I have a white ipod that can only watch music, it isn't that modern and it has 20 GB, and here is the story I got an ipod from my dad that is sort of old, but I used it and for 3 months now, it worked fine. Yesturday, it froze and when I reset it, it showed a folder with an exclamation point. That error told me to visit the apple website, and they told me to charge it, which I did and it still doesn't work. So they suggestion to restart, restore, reinstall, reset, retry. Restarting my computer and reinstalling itunes was pointless for me. The reset option didn't work and t he only option is to restore it, but the issue would eventually haunt the ipod again. When I connect it into my computer, it says it is corrupted. When I leave it off for a while, it works like normal, but freezes a bit, and skips 95% of my songs. I use it as a backup drive to save my data on and I need to access it. Is there a way I can get to the files to save them on my computer, get it to work without having to restore it, or having to get a program that can fix it or be able toa ccess it even though it won't show in finder. If you help me, I will give you a best answer big time and do not say to restore the ipod, which I will not do unless I can access my stuff. The stuff is still in there, it isn't gone, and I want to have a chance to get it before it is too late.
