Hi I've had my ipod classic for a few years and had few (if any) problems. Lately though, about 3/4 of the time I connect it to my PC i get this msg: iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPod. Go to the Summary tab in iPod preferences and click Restore to restore this iPod to factory settings. I've restored the iPod, uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes, changed the cord, tried different usb ports...all have been unsucessful. The songs etc are still there (the memory usage indicates this) and using instructions I've found online, I've recovered the songs. But its frustrating having to do this each and every time I want to add 1 song. Is there any fix for this problem. Why is this happening constantly? I'm at a loss! Thanks!!
