My ipod isn't detected by my computer

I recently bought a used 40 gb classic apple ipod. I downloaded iTunes for my ipod. When I plug my ipod into the usb on my computer it charges my ipod but it doesn't allow me to delete old music on the ipod nor add new music. The ipod plays the music it has on it fine and charges via computer and wall charger but no new music can be added. Please help!

SOURCE: ipod not recognized by computer or itunes

I had the same problem. The problem ended up being with Itunes not working right. The solution I found was to download the program winamp and download the plugin for apple ipod. Then you can sync and add software thru winamp. After syncing one time it even worked with itunes but I like winamp better, so I synch all music using winamp.

Hold the "Menu and Center button" until it shuts down, then when you se the apple, hold "Menu and Play/Pause button"

That will force the ipod into disk mode, it will allow you to restore the iPod with iTunes and re-upload the song onto it.

If this doesn't help try older ver. of itunes (ver. 7) http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.htm to restore it.
If this doesn't help you need to go to apple store and let them fix/change your ipod.

SOURCE: My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools

You may need to restore the iPod in iTunes. You could try to install Tune Tools on another Mac and see if it works there. It is possible that the software version you have does not support the Classic. There may be an updated version that you need to install to use it with the Classic. Check the authors site or the documentation for supported models.

Cheers

My son updated my 2g ipod touch on his (older?) computer. It is frozen now & won't go past a screen w/the itunes symbol & the usb plug. It will not restore. I have uninstalled & reinstalled...


  • This isn't an iTunes problem. While the iPod is displaying this logo, you need to plug it in to a computer that has iTunes open beforehand.
  • Try using another computer with iTunes installed, or another USB cable for the iPod. Try to restart by holding the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds.
  • If this still doesn't work, take the iPod to your local Apple store, where they can check for any hardware problems that may have occurred.

Restoring an ipod


Make sure you got the latest itunes version and latest ipod classic version.  Also you need to be on the original computer you used to sync with the ipod.  Open up itunes and connect the ipod.  Your ipod should show up on the computer.  Just click on the restore itunes back to factory default button and you should be g to g.

My itune can not detect my ipod classic 120 gb


try putting your ipod in disk mode.
Press and Hold the Menu (top button) and the Action (center button) until you see the apple appear, then switch your fingers to the Play/Pause (bottom button) and the action (center button) and hold till you see a check mark on the screen.
attached the usb cord and plug it into your computer with your itunes on.
I should mount to itunes.
if it doesn't mount try a different usb port preferably a usb 2.0 port
If that fails, something is wrong with your ipod.

My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools


Hi,

Try Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.

Try it, I wrote it for a Itouch / iphone generally but basicly if its a driver issue that should solve it.

If not, can you post me the status of the ipod from the device manager?

How can i erase old music and video files from my apple ipod video 30 gb black?


You would need to plug the iPod into your computer and run iTunes. iTunes can be downloaded here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
If you didn't get a cable for the iPod when you bought it, you can get one here: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-M9126G-A-Data-cable/dp/B00009KO0D
If the iPod had a security code on it, using it on your computer with iTunes will unlock it. iTunes will automatically detect the iPod and bring up a menu. It may ask you if you want to erase the files on it. If it doesn't, you will be able to delete the files through iTunes.
