Tips & Warnings
The file names in the iPod_Control folder may be unrecognizable. To make copying difficult, your iPod reassigns the files random names unrelated to the artist or song title. The files still contain ID3 tags, however, and importing them back into iTunes or Windows Media Player will help you identify each track. You may need to rename the files.
