    iTunes says that you "HAVE to restore"?

    sounds odd...

    Ok, i've had this happen to me before, in which all my music and videos showed up as "other" in Itunes. What i did was go into the itunes_control folder with Finder.app, and then delete the music and video folders, and resync. After that, everything was back to normal without having to restore anything.
    Hopefully that helped a bit.

    so i can copy my musik from the folder
    /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music
    than i delete the folder /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control
    and then i synch via itunes the data which was in my /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music folder...this works??

    now i can use all my apps and so on but my music is gone...in itunes i can't do anything... i cant select musc or videos...I can only put the ipod into factory setting back...

    hmm, ok. Well, yes, you can copy the music from that folder on your ipod. All your music should still be there. Do not delete the folder itunes_control as it will screw up your ipod, and you will be forced to restore it. Instead, once you delete the music and video from that folder, sync up to itunes.
    this should fix it...and in turn, itunes should be able to recognize it.

    okay you mean I should copy the musik from the music folder, than delete the music, and then Itunes can synchronise with my ipod again? (now i can't)

    If it doesnt work, i can go back to factory setting jailbreak it again and then play the songs from the copied folder onto my ipod...but then my apps are gone

    If you want to copy apps, use iphonebrowser.
    Then you can copy them onto your computer, and copy them back over to your ipod after it has been rejailbroken.
