While listening songs with iPod feel amazing and because of its enriched features and music clarity it feels like you are listening to music in home theatre. But if it gets corrupted then entire stuff that was stored in iPod devices becomes inaccessible.
Let us discuss some of the reasons that cause iPod devices to lose data:
- External threats: Presence of viruses like malware, spyware, adware, etc. in iPod device or any other multimedia storage device will result in loss of important files.
- Mishandling of iPod: Pulling out iPod devices from PC while transferring files or when copying process is in progress then it comes out with data loss.
- Synchronization failure: iTunes library manages and organizes music files in iPod devices, but sometimes synchronization between iPod and iTunes fails and hence result in data loss. This can be due to hardware changes or software malfunction. iTunes also has an auto sync feature, so when connected to the system it updates iPod device automatically with music files and result in loss of earlier audio files that were in the device.
- File system corruption: File system manages and organizes files in iPod devices but sometimes file system on the device may get corrupted due to some unknown errors and you may encounter error message like “iTunes.exe-corrupt file” which does not allow to access files from iPod, hence data loss.
