well I have restored the iPod under iTunes and tried to copy the original files, which I had transferred over to my computer, back onto the iPod

however they do not register on the iPod database although they are there!! (I have tried doing this with gtkpod and banshee) so I cannot play them on the iPod

so I am resigned to recompiling my music collectin from my CDs and downloaded files - at least I will be able to weed out those tracks I never did listen to much anyway!!!

this could take a while!!!!

Any errors reported? Maybe you have to remove (backup) the entire
filesystem, wipe it and ask gtkpod/banshee to rebuild it based on the
model. I know gtkpod has the facility, no idea about banshee.

Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them
how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the
sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued,
or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil. [The Laws, Plato]
