    What do you mean you wiped your laptop?

    Why would W7 update your ipod? Then you you wiped again. Does wiping mean deleting everything, formatting the disk or something else?

    My fist guess you have one or more viruses ripping up your computer.

    I plugged into my i pod to my windows 7 laptop which I have just recently formated and reinstalled windows 7.

    And I put i tunes on the laptop and plugged in the i pod and the i pod is after formatting itself.

    itunes may may have thought you were going something illegal and formatted your ipod. Hopefully you didn't have anything on the ipod you didn't have backed up.

    You could try ntfsundelete. If itunes did a quick format you might recover your music.

    Hopefully you didn't spend a good deal of money on the tunes. If you care about your music you might look into Mediamonkey or WinAmp. Neither deletes your music because you MIGHT be doing something illegal. If you go through this forum at least 10% of the posts are "help itunes ate my music" under various titles.
