How to get songs from iPod Nano?

Before proceeding for the steps of recovery, better have a glimpse on each of the regulated points that could cause loss of files.

  • iTunes is the music player used in iPod to manipulate the files. It is used to add & delete the files on iPod. Mostly, updates of iTunes are available & when they are updated in the presence of data then one might face the missing of files
  • When you purchase the iPod then it comes with default settings. Later, it can be configured as per the user settings and files can be stored in it. If due to any reason, the iPod is again reset to factory settings then there might be loss of files
  • iTunes is used to Synchronize your music, movies, podcasts & all contents in an iPod.  There are two types of syncing, one takes place automatically and the other one is done manually. If it is set to an automatic mode then there might be loss of files
  • Transferring of files when iPod’s battery is low, could also result in deletion of files
  • The incursion of virus caused due to infected files, connecting the iPod to the infected PC, synchronizing the iPod on an unsecured network could result in loss of files
