I had accidentally formatted my external hard drive (which included my entire 1500 song library which took me 4 years to compile. That had me traumatized. I knew i could just not ever sync again. But i would like to know if there is a way of bringing back the songs from my 2nd generation IPod touch with all the recent updates back to my PC?
