    I was trying to reset my ipod when I accidentally completely wiped it out.  Now, it just says to go to the support page for help.  Is there any way to recover all my songs or am I screwed?  About 80% of my music is on another computer that I don’t have anymore and I didn’t make any backups.  What can I do?  Thanks

    I have a 60 GB photo ipod. It is giving me a very strange problem.

    When I connect in to my laptop using the disk mode I am able to restore the settings and it is visible in iTunes. As soon as I boot it normally and connect to laptop the ipod hangs.

    The same behavior occurs if I try and play some songs.

    I have formatted it and restored in many times in the last week but of no use.

    Please assist
