Now first up you have to realise all varies on how you wiped the iPod. Auto-sync human error is the most common and also the least problematic but rest assured no writing or even mounting your iPod until you buy this or go to a data recovery business. As with me, it has recovered what looks like all my songs and I'd say 80% have their song titles intact, where AAC was the most hesitant to give them up and the MP3 files lost most of their tags. Playcounts, ratings, last playeds are all predictably gone. Artwork however is suprisingly missing from half of all songs that contained covers which is quite annoying but what can you do. The most important is that so far all songs have normal sizes and no audiable errors. This is a great piece of software that tackles what FileSalvage does but for dollars less, which is great if you only want to use it one time only. However if it's worth it, I'm sure disk recovery places may be able to get all files intact no problem, but be aware the costs are many times more than PodSalvage.

I got most of my songs back using PodSalvage. It would be even better if I can get the song names recovered too. Nevertheless, a good package.

It helped only a little. Only 3500 from 5100 of my audio-files on the iPod were recovered. And more than half of these files were corrupt, for example, song quit after half of the song, some files are blown from 3mg to 12 mb, others are minimized to just a few kB. I am glad, that I got at least a few of my songs back, but it will take ages to hear through all the songs, wether they are complete or if they just stop in the middle.

A very useful application. Recently I had to send my iBook in for service, with a hard drive failure. It came back with a new HD and new OS install, but my only backup of my mp3's existed on my iPod. Without paying attention, I hooked up the iPod so that I could copy them back, and before I knew it I had clicked Yes to the question asking if I wanted to set the iPod up for use with this computer. Of course, now all my MP3's were gone as the iPod sync'd with the empty music collection on my ibook. Oops! I figured since it only took a few seconds to empty it of 15 gigs of music, it didn't actually delete them but rather reset the database and marked the files for overwriting. I searched for an undelete utility and this was the only thing designed specifically for the iPod and music files. I'm happy to say it worked great and recovered every single file I had. It was simple to use, and even better it was only $40 whereas every other mac recovery utility I could find was at least $90. They do not offer a demo, but do have a 30 day money back guarantee. The app can also recover MP3 files from any hard drive or other device, so it can come in handy if you accidentally wipe out your MP3 collection on your hard drive. And it claims to be able to deal with an ipod re-initialization or database corruption. As long as you haven't written any new files to the iPod since the delete, it should be able to recover them.
