Song Ratings File?

I occasionally have to restore my iPod. I have several hundred songs on it, and every one of them is rated. I depend on these ratings heavily. I have my iPod set up as a hard disk. When I restore my iPod, I copy all the files including any documents I might have stored on it and all my music to my hard drive. After I restore the iPod, I connect it back to my computer. I import the songs from my hard drive to iTunes and then from iTunes to my iPod, but all the ratings are gone. Is there any way I can keep the ratings? The ratings aren't stored in the ID3 tags of the mp3s themselves. My first thought would be to find a file somewhere in the iPod_Control folder that contains all the ratings, but I can't identify which file that would be. Any help is much appreciated.

The ratings are stored in the iTunes Music Library.xml file.
