I have stored few video files on my ipod. Could there be a possibility for virus to harm these files? If the answer is yes will it harm my ipod to run a Norton virus scan on it?

Hi Easther,

First of all, I would like to remind you that before saving or storing files on your iPod, make sure that you have installed an anti virus on it. You said that you already stored video files on your iPod. I suggest you to delete those files first and then run your Norton Virus Scan. Then you can put the files back on your iPod then perform another virus scan to be more sure that it is virus free. Always remember to update your Norton Antivirus Scan to be more secured as we all know that prevention is better than cure so we better be updated always. I hope it helps.

Good luck.

There will not be a possibility of harm to the files that you have stored on the iPod not unless the video files that you copied to it were infected or the iPod was infected before. So all you will need to make sure is that the video files that you are copying to the iPod are safe and not infected by viruses or malware.

As for scanning the iPod using the Norton antivirus, that is the best thing that you could do to keep the iPod safe from any harm due to viruses, because the antivirus will check all the files and remove any threats or suspicious files on the iPod. In fact you should be scanning the iPod more often to keep it safe from a virus attacks.
