I'm unable to perform a backup from my iPod Touch to iTunes because it says it's failing to read data from it and that I have to reset it to factory defaults. This will erase all data on the device.
I have, however, over 2000 songs on it that I don't want to lose, and thousands of contacts that I'd rather not lose as well. I tried to backup them with PodTrans but it gives me the same bad news that the device's database is corrupted.
From the device's side though, all is well and it's working normally.
The device was working fine with iTunes until it was halfway through a backup and now it won't sync again.
I've tried several different cables with no success, it doesn't seem to be a cable issue.
I've tried rebooting and restarting iTunes background processes several times with no success.
Is there anything else I can try to save my data from this device?
