    so first my music and videos files just vanished. when i went to music or video app it just went to a blank and crashed. If i went into about it sayed i had 0 songs or vidoes or anything but said that all the space of the space was still was taken up. So i searched and one thread said to delete the fies and resync. so i sshed into ipod and deleted files in /itunes_control/music.(i didnt resync yet) Then when i go into one of the media apps it shows my songs and videos but when i hit to play them it wouldnt. So i used the bosstool wiper that wipes your ipods media then when i went to resync it says "itunes cannot read the contents of this ipod go to retore to restore" i really dont want to restore ive done it too many times. btw i was on 1.1.2 if that matters
    plz help
    -thnx

    I had the same problem (no music + itunes wanted restore) before an hour and I solved it by just deleting (by iPot plugin for Total Commander) the whole itunes_control folder (var/mobile/media in 1.1.3)...after that iTunes made a recovery of the backup and I succesfully synced music on it again

    Reyn, i know its been a while since you posted this, but i just had the same problem and of all the threads on here about this problem your post was the only one that offered any option other than a restore. it worked for me, thanks man. +1 rep
