Hi all, do you know if you can recover content on the IPOD?

I plugged my IPOD into a PC at an internet cafe and when i get prompted in ITunes "do you want to change the link to this itunes music library and replace all existing songs and playlists on this ipod with those from this library? " i chose YES instead of NO by mistake.

Is there anyway to recover the music that was on the IPOD at all? please say yes! =(

    From Apple <<iPod only works (as a music player) when its hard disk is formatted for the appropriate platform using the Mac OS Extended (HFS Plus) or FAT32 formats. Do not reformat the disk using Mac OS Standard (HFS), New Technology File System (NTFS), or UNIX File System (UFS) formats.>>

    If it is FAT32, any of the standard data recovery progs should work. Download the demo of GetDataBack and see if it can find the files. If it can, buy the licence and recover away. If it is the Apple system you would need to find a recovery prog for that format.
