    Can anybody help please,

    My son has an Ipod Touch. Whilst connected to Itunes the Ipod has suddenly removed all music and videos. Itunes shows and the ipod shows no music no video just %GB of OTHER FILES but i cannot seem to access them. Any constructive advice would be really appreciated,

    With Thanks

    Try going into Settings>General>Reset All Settings. (on the iPod.) Do that a few times if no change is seen on the first try.

    If that fails, your son will have to restore his iPod, which shouldn't be that big of a deal.

    Good luck, and welcome to the forums!

    By restoring, you won't move them back, those "Other" files will be deleted. Then, you can sync back the media through iTunes.

    What about your programs installed?

    Do you lose them as well?

    You could back up some 3rd party apps through SSH, then transfer them back over after restoring.

    If you restore - do you then have to jailbreak and all that again? Or is it just the 3rd party programs that you lose?

    Yes, if you restore you have to jailbreak again and you will lose your 3rd party apps.
