Hello, My ipod somehow got corrupted and itunes recognizes it is there, but it cannot read any of the content on my ipod: including my apps, some of which I purchased and have data on that I do not want to lose. I've been looking for ways to back up my apps so I can restore my ipod. But I can't back up the apps if my itunes can't read the apps to begin with! I've been told to restore it and then sync my ipod again. Won't I lose all my apps, though? Should I write them down and download them back? Will I have to pay again? Will I lose all my data? Desperately searching for an answer!
