    I'm kind of in panic mode right now...
    I just plugged my iPod Touch in (v2.1) to sync some new music to it, opened iTunes, and it didn't want to recognize my Touch for a little while... And then when it did, it showed all 10 gigs of my music listed as "Other" - and I don't know why or how it did this by itself! I can't access any of my music because it thinks it's data.
    Can anyone help me with recovery? Is there a program I can use or some way I can access the file system and pull it off?
    This is way beyond me. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

    Technically it was data even before it was listed as "other" :p

    Anyway, for something like this, restore is your friend. Hope you have all your music backed up in iTunes.
