iPod filesystem deleted

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, this is kinda embarrasing...

Somehow, a few days ago, I managed to delete the entire filesystem on my Ipod. (2 gigabyte Nano.) The problem I now have is not only that I lost all my music, but I can't get iTunes or the iPod Software Update to recognize the iPod. Windows can find it as a empty drive, but can't format it to FAT32. (The iPod filesystem.) The only thing I figure could have caused this is Fedora's installer. (I deleted another partition on my hard drive, maybe the iPod partition was recognized and deleted.) So, do you guys have any way of restoring the iPod filesystem other than Apple's software? Or should I just email Apple and hope they take pitty on me?

Use apple's iPod recovery tool - i'll hunt out the link, one mo

http://www.apple.com/ipod/download/

Select Your iPod and download the software and it should set it back up to the way it was when it first came out of the box.

Format your drive using Fat32. Then use the iPod Restore Utility to put the Apple OS back on there! PM me if you need anything else

Edit: I believe that the Restore Utility is on the iPod cd.

I can get it formatted and Windows can recognize it now, but the iPod Restore still says "Can't mount iPod".

I'm going to see if anything different is on the CD.

I get to the point where the CD installer determines that I need to format, and click format. After doing so, the bar gets about halfway across and the i reccive:

There was an error communicating with the iPod. Please reconnect the iPod.

I've tried this twice, but same error.

Try resetting the Ipod by holding the Select (middle button) and play button, or Menu and Play, or Menu and Select (I forgot which one of the combinations, but try them all to see if the Ipod responds).

Check out this link.
