Use this technique if all else has failed. Most users will be fine just by reseting their Ipod, or by ejecting it from windowsItunes, but for those that actually have corrupt files and just want their Ipod back, this is what you need.
A buddy gave me an Ipod to fix, he couldn’t restore it using Itunes, the reason? The corrupt files were causing a failure to read them in windows. I had to find an alternative way to get Itunes to see the Ipod.
