How to I get data off of this damaged iPod.
I have 2 damaged ipods that a customer has requested for me to retrieve her songs. I have tried many options and I cannot get this data off.
I have tried transplanting the hard drive into a working ipod classic. I have tried putting the drives into an enclosure. I have tried reading the drives on windows, mac, and linux. Either the drives show up as not initialized or it asks to be restored in itunes. The closest I have gotten to get data off of one is on a windows pc it showed up as a storage device but when I tried to drag files off of the ipod it crashed and rebooted. I have tried a few data recovery programs and either the programs didnt work or it crashed . Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
Here are images of the hard drives i am trying to recover data from
The enclosure is a 1.8-inch ZIF/CE(IDE 40pin) Hard Drive Enclosure Case With USB2.0 Cables from amazon
I really need to get the data off of these drive. Please Help
or anyone with some insight here
Is this a good question?
