    So, I had to format my drive ( on the PC ) and I lost my iTunes library. I don't even have the .xml .itb (?) files.

    All I have is my iPod Touch with about 20 gigs of music.

    I want to recover the library onto my PC from my Touch. Otherwise, I'll have to delete and start fresh :(

    Ironically, I was thinking about backing up the library last week but I guess I learned I should be doing it the hard way.

    I tried following these steps -

    But I can't see the 'ipod_control' folder or any other hidden files/folders. I am using Windows 7 64 bit and my Touch is a 3G model running iOS 4.1

    I have enabled viewing hidden files/folders but still don't see anything ( guess Apple didn't like that people could view those files/folders ). I would really appreciate any help in this matter.

    That method only works with non-iOS ipods. You need to find a 3rd party program that copies music off iPod touch/iPhones. Unfortunately, I don't know which ones are good, but if you google you'll find a bunch of them.
