    I got my IPOD as a gift with over 3,000 music files on it that were loaded from an external hard-drive and synced onto the IPOD. I don't have the contact information anymore, nor the files. I tried to backup the files in iTunes it took an hour backing up. Once I did all the music files were gone off my IPOD! like gone, not even in the backup. I can't find them. Does anyone know how I can get these files back, its extremely important all the music on it was going to be used to stream a live radio. Now I have no music? I am so frustrated by this stupid mishap.

    Ouch... if you have already tried to restore the iPod from the backup you overwrote the files system on the iPod. That means getting any data off of it will be virtually impossible. Try a search of the PC for the music files by extension and see if you can find them.
