I wasnt sure what catagory to put this in so here i am. sorry if this is the wrong place. I recently lost all my data and have been trying to get some things back. i tried to get my music off my ipod and was unsuccessful with only 426 songs.
It said to run chkdsk so i did. then i tried to defrag (saw that solution in a forum elsewhere) and when i try to defrag the ipod i get this msg at 14% :

ScanFat: Scan Aborted - Fatal Error - File: \\?\E:\iPod_Control\Music\F47\TVGG.MP3

While transfering the music i got a msg saying that file was corrupt. i used copytrans.
I tried to delete this file and it just wont go away. i delete it and i refresh the page and its back. i can rename it though and it stays the new name. other files can be deleted...well, at least one can. when i realized they dont go to the recycle bin i didnt delete any more. how can i get this file to go away? i have winxp sp2 the ipod is a touchwheel 20gig.
ran AV and came back clean. TVGG is 0kb with no additional info. archive is checked.
thank you
