    Hi, I ve a iPod mini and i ´m using it to store some photos, because i m on a trip.
    The thing is it, run out of bateries, and i plug it in to the computer to charge, then i unplug it without the safety mode of doing it (pc). Now, no pc recongnize it as an ipod.

    Is there a way to get the photos back?
    I ve tried re installing itunes, putting the ipod in disk mode, and restarting it
    Ive got no luck!
    pleas helpç!!

    If you did it on Windows I'm surprised it has caused a problem as I thought Windows was good at this stuff.

    Have you gone through the 5 R's?

    Sure, but I only thought it mattered on the Mac.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it matter more on Windows than a Mac.

    All it does is to make sure you aren't syncing it when you unplug it. If iTunes is done syncing it...then you can unplug it. But unplugging it while its syncing is a bad idea.

    Windows writes data to external drives immediately as it knows they can be disconnected. However Mac OS X caches the data so it isn't always written straight away.

    Of course its probably best to always eject the disk properly, especially if it has critical data on it.

    True, but on the Mac especially it is better to eject it correctly.

    Have you tried the 5 R's?

    Did you copy the photos on in Disk Mode? If so is the iPod showing up in My Computer?

    Does the PC you are trying to connect to have iTunes installed?

    Go through the five R's except Restoring and then report back, you won't lose your data.


    Btw how can you copy photos onto an iPod Mini except in disk mode? They only had black and white screens... Are you sure you don't have an iPod Nano?

    Can you try and explain yourself more clearly, your English is very broken, I don't really understand how you put your photos onto your iPod in the first place.

    ok, let me try.
    I put the photos as if it were a pen drive.
    The ipod is not able to read them, only to carry.
