Itunes doesnt let you get the content off of the ipod and put it on your computer because then nobody would download music but just share it. There are lots of programs out there for this, some free and some cost money. The ones you pay for are more legitimate but the free ones should work as well. www.download.com and websites like that should have something. I cant think of any names.

Black ipod classic 80gig. how do i reset it,ive forgot the 4 didgit lock code?


According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data."

Apple iPod classic will play for 30-45' then will


1. Try doing a 'Restore' from within iTunes 2. If iTunes can't see the iPod it's possible that the hard drive is dead or dying. 3. If it's under warranty (12 months), take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days
No warranty? Google "iPod repairs" in your country and you should be able to find someone who can fix it. The usually have a self diagnosis on line so will get an idea of the cost before you begin

My ipod classic that i just bought used from a friend wont sync


What happens when you plug it into the computer and open itunes? Do you see the ipod device on the left side? If not, check the cable connections. Try another cable. Make sure the ipod is charged. See this article.for instructions on how to sync.
If it's still not working, go to iTunes>Edit>preferences>devices and make sure you haven't disabled the auto syncing box.
Still not working, Check the support options for your model ipod here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Ipod wont show on itunes anymore


Try to uninstall your ipod. If you installed any software with it, then go to your control panel, add or remove software, and uninstall any software for the ipod. (if its an apple, then it will say something with apple in it) you should be able to figure that out.
then if thats done, or if there is nothing, then right click my comptuer go to properties, then into device manager. Look for the drive, under drives. I would plug the ipod into the computer, the uninstall the drive there, which is associated to your ipod. Drive f that would be for you. then restart your comptuer, leaving the ipod pluged in. it should reinstall. and pop up under itunes again.

Downlaod-error messege when attempting to reset iPod classis


If when you have a new ipod and you connect it to a computer, if the first computer you connect it to is a mac, then that is the only type of pc it will work with after that. If you want it to connect it to a windows, you will have to restore it which will allow it to work with windows software. For some reason unknown, mac and windows have different loading software for the ipod and has to be re-installed with a restore before it can work with a different operating system. When it restores on your computer, check to make sure it has a strong internet connection. You should be able to restore after that.

Restore


Windows and MAC each want to format the player in their own way - using both on one iPod = eventual death for your iPod (and mass confusion, frustration in between). Pick a computer - format the player for that computer only. Make sure that all songs you are trying to load are in the right format suggested by the user manaul. WMA files are trouble - avoid them if possible (if you want, I will give you clarification on this).

Free software to DOWNLOAD my 80gig classic ipod to my new computer


went to www.ephpod.com and got free trial of MUSIC RESCUE from the forum after spending most of the day reading threads (wanted to be sure the "trial offer" didn't sting me half-way through a 20 gig download.)
The ephpod's software is the easiest to find, but one of the threads said his new 80gig classic ipod (same as mine!) crashed.
Somewhere there's an ipod compatibility chart, make sure your ipod matches.
There's several different software packages available, with "limited features" but music rescuer offered full features except for annoying pop-ups. Every 50 tunes it said to make this annoyance stop simply donate 10 pounds (british.) i clicked the mouse alot more than 40x finding this!
Anyway, download the help screen also (read it twice!), and it's basically idiot proof.
There's also a book, How to do everything with yout ipod and itunes by Guy Hart-Davis published by McGraw-Hill/Osbourne, that's basically an IPOD for DUMMIES
