~ How to see iPod files without iTunes ~
if you open your iPod and can't see the music/video files, here's how to do it:
Open your control panel and click on "apperance and themes". There should be a tab to the left saying "file types", click that. Then under a heading "show hidden files" there is a radio button that you can click to enable the use of seeing those hidden files.
Now you cab return to your iPod. Now there should be a light tan, half invisible folder named "music" with files inside called "f00" "f01" etc. These are all of your media files! Now you can backup your iPod on your computer, some body else's computer, or whatever you want! Have fun. If I missnamed something, somebody can correct me. I'm doing this from my phone and from memory
