Get Data When iPod Says No Files but Memory is Full

“I have an iPod Classic which I bought just a year ago. I use the iPod almost exclusively connected to the aux input of a car stereo rather than headphones. I normally charge it via USB of the same car stereo. Every now and then, the iPod freezes. It freezes particularly when plugging or unplugging it for charging via stereo. I simply reboot it and then it will be fine. Yesterday, I plugged the iPod to my MacBook Pro to transfer some files. When I finished, I ejected the iPod. Instead of displaying music screen, iPod rebooted itself. As I mentioned above, it was not new thing I experienced with my iPod, so I was not worried. But after it powered on, it shows no music! It appeared to be empty. But showing memory as full! Unfortunately I don’t have backup of iPod data. This is a total disaster. Now I don’t know what to do; can somebody please suggest how to restore my data from iPod?”
