Red face Accidentally deleted everything on my Ipod. Can I recover data?

Ok so like an idiot I was trying to delete all the songs on my 60 GB Ipod and I deleted not just the songs but all the video files I had. I dont care about the songs because I have them all on my computer in itunes but I delete all the videos from my computer as soon as I put them on my Ipod so I have no backup of them on my computer. Is there anyway I can recover all the videos I deleted. I dont care if it recovers the music too. I am using Windows XP.

I'm afraid your videos are history. Unless you want to have a data recovery service restore your videos (which is expensive and will most likely render your iPod useless), they're gone.

I would still try to plug it in, and then look in the recycle bin.

Windows puts a recycle bin on most ums compliant devices, unless it is told not to....
