I was in a hurry the other day and I accidentally disconnected my Ipod without ejecting. I got the message that the data may be missing or corrupt. I checked the Ipod and all my tunes are still there. My question is if all the songs are there does that mean that all of the songs are ok and not missing any data? Is there a way to check that all the songs are complete without having to play all of the songs? Is there any other problem besides missing data that could happen by disconnecting without ejecting? What is all that could happen?

    None that I know of. The message you see is a standard message when you've disconnected the iPod without properly ejecting it first. It doesn't necessarily mean that your iPod has become corrupted (hence the word may in the message).

    Even if the data were corrupted, it's a simple matter of restoring the iPod and reloading the music from your iTunes library.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned.
