Hello MacRumors Forum! First off, I'm a newbie here (didn't know where the intro thread was, don't trash me for that..) Ok, so here is my problem. My 3rd gen, 32 gb iPod today was acting a bit laggy and slow, so I decide to listen to some tunes. Much to my surprise, the music portion crashed, and I went back to my library, and ALL my songs were gone . So when I came back to my computer, I synced, and it so what fixed the problem. Now we come ahead to now. I download some podcasts from iTunes, and it happens AGAIN :mad. Please help before I decide to call the Apple Store, and replacing it again.... Oh and one more note. My iPod was a refurbished one I swapped with after my old touch bit the dust. UPDATE: Restoration seems to have worked. Thanks r.j.s!
