So I dropped my iPod this morning (it's a 5g 60gb), it split in half, and 2 little rubber pieces fell out. I can't figure out where they go. I closed the iPod with the parts missing, and it won't get past the Apple logo. I took it to the Apple store, and they told me I had a "corrupt" harddrive in it or something and that I'd have to reformat for even a chance of it working again... If anyone has any suggestions to at least get it working again for a little bit, so I can rip all my music to my external before getting a new iPod (I'm an idiot and didn't back stuff up), that'd be more than helpful. Thanks.

If you reformat the drive,if there is anything on it then you will lose everything by re-formatting.I would connect it to your mac and then see if itunes pulls it up,if so then you might be able to get your music

I'm having trouble understanding something...if it is YOUR iPod, why don't you have the music on your computer already? If you connect an iPod to a computer and sync it to a library without any music in it, it erases the iPod. So you must have that music somewhere if you have been syncing it before...

And if you dropped it then Apples warranty won't cover it.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
