Don't, don't, don't attempt to defrag solid state memory. Don't.

Flash memory decreases its life the more it is written to, and defragmentation is a very read/write intensive process.
Plus, there's no performance gain for defragmenting flash memory because there's no moving parts.
It doesn't matter where data is stored because it can be retrieved at the same speed wherever it resides.

Defragmentation is sometimes useful in hard drives because it can rearrange data in such a way that the physical heads aren't jumping all over the place looking for data.

Does your iPod have a hard drive or flash memory?

Yes, it has a hard drive.

Still. no need to defrag it unless it's skipping songs or playing very choppy.
I've been working closely with Apple products (all of them) for a long time and I've never seen a case where an iPod NEEDED to be defragged on a regular basis. It should be a very rare thing.

I don't know of any phone with a hard drive, but maybe one exists somewhere.

Why are you so concerned about hard drives and defragging?

I thought defragging was a Windows thing.
