Connect your I-pod.
now click on tools-->>Folder Options-->View-->Show hidden files
Also there is a checkbox "hide protected system files"-->Uncheck it.

Now open your I-pod.You wil find plenty of hidden folders.
One of them wil contain your mp3 files.

All the best !

The mp3 files are stored in 4 lettered folders. I havent figured out the logic of doing this though.

I agree but the file names will be in encrypted format.Original file name is replaced by four alphabets.

For Ex:
Orig. file name--> Shivaji.mp3
Encrypted file name in iPOD --> SDFR.mp3

I am working on this will post more details.

Raknahs, good observation. But you know what, the name changes does not affect the mp3 playback as such 😁 ... plus theres always the idv3 tag to know more information on the file.
