Use DiskWarrior to save troubled iPods System
Two days ago, songs started disappearing from my 30gb iPod. I called Apple Care, and they recommended disk utility and/or restoring my iPod and erasing all the data. I couldn't find any information on DiskWarrior's effect on an iPod. So I threw caution into the wind and tried DiskWarrior. It recovered 100% of my music. So, in case there was any doubt, DiskWarrior works fine with iPods.

I wouldn't go as far as considering the iPod as a "standard hard drive"; the partition map of the iPod is by all means unusual for a firewire drive, as it contains two invisible partitions that hold boot arguments and firmware software: that's why if you reformat the unit you loose your digital music player, transforming it in a regular firewire hard drive.

I used Drive X (when is Tech Tool Pro 4 coming?) a few days ago to do a volume structure check and defrag my ipod.
