Hi, I was transferring some files by connecting my iPod to Mac system but all of a sudden my iPod stopped working. Many times I tried to restart the iPod but the device won’t turn on and display only a black screen. I had stored videos, photos and songs on my iPod and now I have lost all of them. From that moment I am thinking why my iPod stopped working all of a sudden without any reason. Can I get back the lost data stored in iPod? Can anyone suggest me a useful guideline to recover iPod data when it stops working?
