Here's my situation: My iPod froze, while running dTunes (not playing a video though), so i force rebooted it, but it got stuck on the apple logo. I left it overnight, so the battery drained (as it was doing strange things and not turning off properly), tried it again, but without luck. I put it into restore mode and i could just restore it, but i never got around to backing it up, (dammit.) so i would lose all my files. If there is any way to get it out of restore mode, or view and backup the filesystem, please tell me. My iPod is a 2G, with 3.0 firmware, 8GB, and i have a PC running vista x64. I've been searching google for about an hour now with no success. Help please? Thanks, Kale PS every once in a while it will disconnect from itunes, and go back to the apple logo.
