Ok, so after working fine for 18+ months, my Ipod got screwed up yesterday. Whenever I try to turn it on, it just simply stays at the booting up apple screen. When I hold the hope+sleep button to restart, the apple screen again pops up and just stays there. When I plug it to my wall jack, the iPod gets extremely hot and the apple screen just stays lit up. When I unplug it, the iPod quickly loses power and it goes to the battery screen. My main problem is that I have $175 worth of songs I bought from the iPod's iTunes. I never synced them to my computer's iTunes. I know if I do a restore all these songs will be gone.
