    Ipod Nano 3rd Gen deleted files recovery
    Hi, while sync for the first time with my Macbook Pro, accidentally erased all my music from Ipod. Had no backup in my Itunes. How can I recover my music? Thanks

    Was your music originally purchased from iTunes? If so, download your music again from iTunes. If you had other music on your iPod that was not purchased from iTunes, you'll need recovery software. "Recover my iPod"

    As chscag says, any songs you bought from iTunes can be re-downloaded for free.

    Other songs are still present on the CDs you ripped, so you can always re-rip them.

    If you got the songs from some other source, and you erased the iPod, they are most likely gone. I'm not sure I understand how you had that many songs on the iPod but not already in iTunes on your Mac ... where were these songs synced from?

    All songs were from other sources, but no Itunes. It was a big mistake not to backed them up, to late for regrets. All I'ed heard is about recovery software as shscag said. Is it a realiable software? Thanks to both.

    Yes, the software is reliable but as you can see, it's not free. Next time, don't forget to backup.

    I'm mystified at how people have iPods full of music, but that music isn't already on the iTunes on their Mac or PC. How is that even possible??

    Good question.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I have come across this at work. Customers tell me they deleted their iTunes library as they were running out of hard drive space. Then when their iPod dies they panic. It does happen.
