Apple launched iPod in the year 2001. The initial storage capacity of iPod is 5 GB. Later on various generations of iPod were released where iPod Shuffle, Nano, Touch etc were some of them that can store up to 160 GB of data and increasing with rapid usage. Actually, iPod is a portable media player designed for storing audio and video files. iPod stores data on an internal hard disk. But, iPod Nano and iPod shuffle use flash memory for storage. IPod is a digital gadget that stores music files in digital form. The audio and video files that are stored in iPod are transferred to PC using iTunes software installed on your system. The file systems supported by iPod are FAT32 and Apple’s HFS+ file system. These are standard file formats used by iPod. HFS+ file system is supported only by Macintosh operating system. If the iPod is formatted with FAT32 file system then iPod can work with both Windows and Mac based PC. The various file formats supported by iPod are AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), Protected AAC, MPEG Audio Layer III, Apple Lossless, JPEG, TIF, TIFF, GIF, PNG, BMP, PSD etc. This digital equipment can store thousands of files depending upon the storage capacity.
There are certain scenarios where data stored in iPod is lost due to firmware corruption, accidental ejection of iPod, improper synchronization etc. You can get rid of this situation and recover data even after encountering the above-mentioned scenarios when you use best iPod recovery tool.
When your iPod is frozen, files stored in it become inaccessible. Though the files still exist on the iPod, data becomes accessible due to malware attack, firmware corruption etc. When iPod is plugged to PC, it should synchronize with PC to access the files stored in it. When you unplug or disconnect the iPod during the synchronization process leading to loss of music, video files and photos from iPod. Restore option deletes data from iPod. Accidentally using the Restore option available in iTunes leads to deletion of data from iPod. When iPod is connected to computer, it should involuntarily synchronize with iTunes. Synchronization failures also lead to loss of photos, files from iPod.
