Windows 7 "fixed" iPod, files are invisible

Hopefully someone will see this XD desperately need help!

I had a problem, with my ipod sometimes refusing to connect, and good ol Windows 7 kept asking if it could have a shot at fixing it. My iPod was about 50% success at connecting without needing to restart it and try reconnecting, so I decided to let windows try and find a problem, why not. Well... it fixed the problem of my iPod's connection issues, but in doing so put all of my music in some sort of "invisible" folder. iTunes shows 55.4 GB of "other" on the iPod, but cannot access any of it. In addition, opening it up in explorer with "show hidden folders and files" selected yields no results at all! Clearly my music is still there as per the 55.4 GB of "other." Does anyone know anything about this! I reeeeeeeeeally dont want to lose all of my music

It sounds like your ipod's database is messed up. You might be able to rebuild it with a piece of software. There are lots of them out there. The last time it happened to me I used a program called "Floola". It has a repair ipod feature that repairs/rebuilds ipod databases. It might work for you too.

Are you suggesting that you don't have your music backed up elsewhere? For shame!
