Default recovering deleted files from I-pod

I recently got an Apple I-pod to store digital images when traveling. Just returned from a trip to India. After downloading images to my computer, I deleted the images from the I-pod, but later discovered that two sets of files (60 images in RAW format) had not been copied. Anyh ideas how to recover the deleted images from my I-pod?
Many thanks,
Marty Spencer

I don't know much about the Ipod, but doesn't it just have a laptop HD in it? If so, I think you should be able to use data recovery tools to get that stuff back.

If the Ipod shows up as a drive on your computer, you may be able to use some different digital photo recovery tools available. You can probably find something by searching google.

Good suggestion. Found some freeware called Zero Assumption Digital Image Recovery which is working as I write, although very slowly, and is recovering my images. Apparently also works on flash cards, etc.

Awesome. I was thinking along the same lines, but I know so little about the Ipod so I figured I was wrong. I'm glad to hear you found something though. It's always an awful feeling when you have something important to you and it just kind of goes poof .... I've had plenty of experience with this.

I am glad that worked. I don't know much about the Ipod, but since it has a hard drive in it, I thought is should be recoverable just like any other hard drive.

Were you able to recover all of them?

It did recover all the photos - and all of those I hadn't deleted. It isn't exactly fast (took over 24 hours to cover half of the 40GB drive), but it worked, and the price was right.
