I reformatted it using my Windows XP laptop by plugging it into my USB port and--without opening iTunes--scrolled down the drives shown in Windows Explorer. I found my iPod displayed, right-clicked on it, clicked Format, and that did the job. I also reformatted my iPod using a command available in XPlay, an add-on Explorer-like program from Media Four. That worked too. I've talked with others who have used the iPod updater "Restore" option. That also scrubs all data from the iPod and reformats its hard drive.

Pasted from another site

when you plug it in, xp should create a new drive in below c drive somewhere
yes/no ?

Sorry to steal the thread, but is it possible to take songs FROM the ipod and put them on to your computer?

Had to restore my laptop to factory settings and therefore lost itunes and all the songs I had on there. If I try to add anything to the ipod I am thinking the rest of the songs will be wiped?

unplug USB, plug in again, on left pane of windows explorer a new drive letter appears with "Saxos Ipod" or similar. Right click to get format option.
