As the topic says i've accidently deleted the directories off my ipod. I use my ipod as a hardrive for storing files rather than music etc. I deleted everything off my ipod including some of the default folders without realizing. Now when i plug it in nothing happens, and when i turn it on, it doesn't get past the apple logo.

Problem is i have lost my original ipod installer disk to initialize the HD. I'm on a imac and the ipod is the second gen 'ipod dock' i think it was called. the one before the click wheel.

What i need to know is there a download of the installer disk, or is there another way to get the ipod to to mount so i can use the new itunes to initialze it?
