I recently had to restore my iPod Video (circa 2007) after dropping it.  Now it will not sync, and I get the error message "The iPod cannot be synced because it cannot be found." Sometimes it says "the required file cannot be found" instead.  This has never happened before.


I would rather not reinstall since I have over 9000 songs all star-rated by hand.


I am using iTunes 11 and Windows XP.  Can anyone help?
