Some of the important scenarios responsible for song files deletion from iPod are mentioned below:

File system corruption: Your important data may get lost from your iPod if the file system of your files gets corrupted. “Incorrect capacity”, “firmware file corrupted”, “iPod volume format unknown” etc are the common error messages that occurs when the file system of your iPod gets corrupted. Once the file systems of your files get damaged then there is 100% surety that you will lose all your stored data. You may not be able to access your crucial media file, if the severity of damage will be on higher scale

Deletion of data due to accidental formatting: Formatting erases all files and creates new file system. Generally, there are two ways for restoring an iPod .i.e. either you can restore your iPod to default factory settings or you can reset your iPod by creating a backup. Resetting to factory settings will reset your iPod to its original factory settings as if you have just switched on the iPod for the first time i.e. it deletes your complete data stored on it resulting in data loss. Once the data gets deleted, you cannot reclaim it back until you take the help of some professional iPod file recovery software

Besides these, there are some common situations under which your files may also get deleted / lost from your iPods. Those common situations are mentioned below:

  • Your files may suddenly disappear from your iPod as soon as your iPod start interacting with your computer after getting connected due to synchronizing error
  • Sometimes after re-installing windows when you plug-in your iPod to your system and wait for iTunes to respond at that time all the stored data may get deleted automatically
  • The other classic case of file deletion from iPod is when you connect your iPod to other computer. As soon as you connect, the iTunes of your iPod system will get updated by the iTunes of that particular system. Once the iTunes get updated then all your stored data will get deleted automatically

If you enabled auto sync and then you plug your iPod to the computer, then your files will get updated automatically on your iPod with the present data of the iTunes library on the connected computer. The solution to these problems is to create a backup of every single file. If you have a backup option then you will be able to protect all your important data from getting deleted or lost.
