The Apple iPod is one of the most revolutionary pieces of consumer electronics ever released. The iPod has remained the most dynamic and popular digital music player since its initial release in 2002 and with the creation of multiple lines within the brand, it will likely remain the preferred choice for digital music listeners.
The ever-expanding iPod model range includes options such as the iPod Classic, colorful iPod Nano, compact iPod Mini, affordable iPod Shuffle and the feature packed iPod Touch. With the exception of the iPod Classic and Mini, all other models use flash memory. The iPod classic uses a 1.8 inch ribbon ATA6 ZIF-40 Microdrive (Toshiba) and the iPod mini uses a 1 inch Microdrive (Hitachi).
Which file systems are supported by iPods?
The iPod Classic is compatible with both Windows and MAC operating systems. If the device is being connected to a personal computer using the Windows operating system for the first time, it will format the drive to the FAT32 file system. If your iPod is connected to a MAC initially, then the drive is formatted to the HFS+ file system. Simply put, the iPod supports both FAT32 and HFS+ file systems.
The iPod can play MP3 audio files and MP4 video files, as well as many other file formats. iPod synchronization is handled entirely by iTunes. What this means is that if you have to transfer any information to your iPod, you must use iTunes to do so.
iPods support MP3, AAC/M4A, Protected AAC, AIFF, WAV, Audible audio book, and Apple Lossless audio file formats. The iPod photo introduced the ability to display JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG image file formats.
Are iPods susceptible to data loss?
Yes they are. iPods, whether having a Flash drive or Microdrive, can become damaged through human error, software malfunctions and virus attacks. The most common form of data loss to iPods is accidental deletion of files while synchronizing them using iTunes. If you lose files on your iPod in any of these ways, you will need our specialized software for iPod recovery.
How easy is it to perform iPod recovery?
Recovering deleted MP3, MP4, WAV, JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF and PNG file formats using Disk Doctors Digital Media and iPod recovery software is extremely easy.

Yep, I used our scanpst.exe as well as 4 other utilities. Yours was the only one that showed me it could recover messages.
Yes it really did work! My drive was "unreadable" by windows or anything else I threw at it. The drive was good, but no data. This software brought back about 95% of a 500GB drive!

Thank you! It is nice to deal with professionals!
In spite of my PC being re-imaged, having several applications installed and being used daily for about a week, your product was able to recover most of my lost files!
