    Somehow my 60 GB iPod Photo has become a 22 GB iPod Photo. Anyone have any idea what may have happened?

    I've restored it for both Mac and Windows. No change.

    Maybe you have a friend whose iPod changed from 20 GB to 60 GB just recently? :D

    That'd be amusing.

    A bit more detail - my wife unhooked it one morning and said when she went to listen to it, it was blank.

    I'm wondering if she did not eject and somehow screwed up the File Allocation Tables.

    Is this possible?

    It's possible, you could try to format it with Disk Utility (you could also check what Disk Utility says about the iPod and see if there's anything unusual there) before restoring it.

    Yeah I would suggest doing a full erase and then disk check using disk utility.

    If that doesn't work.... it could be a drive failure.

    Thanks. I'll try that when I get home then.

    I did format it in Windows and restore, and that did nothing. Maybe I'll have better luck with DU.
