If you ever want to see your media files on your iPod without opening up the iTunes player, here are the steps to do it:
- Go Control Panel and select Appearance and Themes and or Personalization. Under Folder Options, click on show hidden files and folders, a pop-up window appears and under View tab, check on the box that says, show hidden files, folders and drives. Be sure to press Apply button, then click on Okay button, too.

- Open up Files and or My Computer Explorer, Then find the iPod icon , expand it and click on Music Folder, go to the window's task pane , you will see your Music Sub-folders namely: F00, F01, F02, and so on.
- These folders have gotten all your MP3'S, just open them one at a time then select all the files you want to copy or duplicate and keep them in a usb or on your computer's hard drive for a back up, just in case, if someday you will lost your iPod or accidentally get deleted all your media files on your iPod device.
- I learned these things from school of course, and remember it ever since, because my son, likes to listen to foreign music and who is also into iPod devices.
