Unplugged ipod during "DO NOT DISCONNECT". Wiped H
So I was getting ready to leave and remembered I had downloaded a new song. I wanted to listen to it in the car but I was in kind of a hurry. I plugged in the ipod and watched as it synced my song. Then it decided to get cheeky and try to optimize like 1,000 pictures. Like I said I was in a huge rush so I clicked "eject ipod" in iTunes. Of course, my computer sensed I was in a hurry so it took it's sweet ass time. It just kept blinking "DO NOT DISCONNECT". I said to myself "lililili this", I think my iPod is bluffing, so I unceremoniously rip the cord out and run to my car. I was pretty proud of myself, I sure showed my iPod who was boss. Then I turned it on and went to load my favorite playlist. 0 playlists found. "That's strange" I think to myself. I go to browse by artists. 0 artists found. There was not a single shred of ANYTHING left. I did a hard reset and still nothing. I went to dinner in a HORRIBLE mood and now I have to wait as it syncs 30 gigs of music and 25 gigs of movies. Bottom line. DO NOT DISCONNECT. Its not playing around.
Much like these hips, iPods don't lie
Yep I accidently did it once and was like oh no! and fell to my knees but it didnt delete anything. Maybe the ipod sensed that mine was a mistake and forgave me.
try to reset the iPod. that happened to me once, and the data was still there, i just had to reset my iPod (menu + OK buttons hold down.)
Didn't he say he tried to do a hard reset already? lol

I guess it would help to read instead of skim, especially when it's all cramped together like that. )
See, I love my iPod, and it knows it. I'm never vindictive, and I just think happy thoughts everytime I randomly unplug it. Thus, I am rewarded with no loss of data. Share the love. Hug-a-pod.

I was taking my ipod for granted. Its treated me well through good times and bad. An under-appreciated pod is an unreliable pod. I will tenderly eject it from this day forward. Let this be a lesson to all of us.
Ouh, I did that once, back when only the orginal big white ipods were out. I was twisting in my chair while it was updating, and it accidently grabbed a hold of my chair...and there it went, unplugged. I just froze for about a minute, then later found out certain functions on it didn't work anymore ( .
Soon later, though, the Black Nano iPod came out, and someone bought it for me for Christmas. I take VERY good care of this one, and I still have it to date D
This has happened to me twice, first time, i was able to recover with the backup DB file it generated. Second time, it didn't as the backup file was too old and only had file info from a year ago..... quite pointless.
Your database file is most likely corrupt, but the problem can be rectified as the ipod sometimes makes a backup copy.
The key file that holds all playlist all the data is the iTunesDB file which is hidden.
First,set Windows Explorer to View Hidden Files and Folders, and to show file extensions. Go to (IPOD DRIVE LETTER)\iPod_Control\iTunes, and
1) First, rename iTunesDB to something like iTunesDB.1
2) Then rename iTunesDB.xxx to iTunesDB (no file extension)
liwhere xxx is i believe a bac extension or similar, this is the backed up database file your going to useli
3) Disconnect the iPod and turn it on normally. If you're lucky, things will be back to normal.
