Download, install and launch iPod Data Recovery for Mac on your Mac OS X. Select one recovery mode according to your situation.
Connect iPod to Mac with USB cable. If it is functioning fine, the software will detect it immediately. If your iPod is unfortunately stuck in recovery mode, iPod Data Recovery will help you exit iPhone recovery mode in one click before scan.
And if your iPod is stuck in apple logo, apple boot loop, etc., you can download iCareFone to repair iOS system before data recovery.
Once the iPod is detected, you can choose the data type and click "Start Scan" to start scanning all the files on your iPod.
Once scanning done, all the recoverable data on your iPod will be found and listed by category, such as photos, videos, Safari bookmarks, calendars, and etc. You can preview all of them and select the files you need recover.
Tips: In the scan result, you'll get all data including lost data and those still exit on your iPod. If you only want to deal with the lost data, you can define the result by ticking "Only display the deleted items".
Then a window appears, and you need to specify a location on your Mac to save the recovered iPod files. For text content like contacts, text messages, call history and etc., they are saved as .xls, .xml, .txt file. For media file (photos, videos, audios), they are saved in their original formats.
