    After leaving my week 41 ipod touch to upload music, videos etc... i disconnected it only to find the damn thing had wiped all my music and videos completely out the blue. Photos were all there and everything worked as it should but it was just missing those files.

    Upon connecting it back to the pc, and restarting itunes, it shows me this,

    and then after trying to restore it gives ,e error (-18), whatever that is.

    I tried reinstalling iTunes, nothing changed, and haven't a clue what else to do.

    I found another similar thread on the mac forums posted around the same time, but hasn't been solved.

    You're gonna need to force restore.

    Do a force restore(search this site) and if that doesn't work try restoring on a different computer.
    That only helps when you're downgrading so that you can select a different firmware to restore to. If he has a different firmware then that might work.
