All my files are gone and nothing I put on it plays
OK, for some reason (I have no idea how this happenned) ALL my files are gone on my IPod. I have it set up to update manually so I don't know what deleted everything, but it wasn't me. And now whenever i try to play a song/video that i put back on my ipod, it goest to the now playing screen for half a second, then stops and goes back to my menu. So I lost all my files and I can't play new ones. What can i do to fix it and prevent it from happening again?
Welcome to Apple Discussions!
I would try a restore...
Restore the iPod
Also, make sure that all software is up to date...
