"I have a collection of several GB of MP3 files that got erased the last time I charged my iPod on my computer. The Apple Store representative claims that this sync happens automatically anytime iTunes is connected to a computer. But I have been downloading songs onto my iPod from different computers and CDs for several years, and this has never happened.
I have tried to find a solution to restore the files but cannot find one that does not involve uploading from a backup. Any arcane, convoluted methods are appreciated."
