My computer and my current iTunes does not see my iPod 3rd generation. I think the hard drive crashed?

When I start up my computer and then iTunes, I connect my 3rd generation iPod. iTunes and my computer do not see the iPod, even in my computer I look for it. Then my computer goes hay wire. The only way to get my computer back is to restart it again. Help me out here. Is my hard drive on my iPod dead?

3rd Generation iPod Touch


The third generation of iPods includes iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Installing the latest software for each of these models involves the same process and requires the latest version of iTunes to perform. The 3rd generation iPod Touch uses the same iOS 4 operating system that the iPhone uses. You can download the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website for free. With iTunes, you can install the most up-to-date software on any 3rd generation iPod for free as well.

Download iTunes from the Apple website or check for the latest update by clicking "Help" at the top of the screen. Scroll down to "Check for Updates." Open iTunes either by clicking its icon in the Start menu or by connecting your iPod to your computer with the sync cable. This cable looks like an ordinary USB cable with a special attachment on the end that plug into your iPod. If you have lost your original cable, you will need to purchase a replacement. Any type of iPod sync cable will work, as long as it is compatible with your 3rd generation model. Wait for iTunes to update or restore your iPod automatically. Enter your iPod's name in the top field when you are prompted. Check the box next to "Automatically update songs on my iPod" if you want iTunes to sync your hard drive's playlist with your iPod every time you plug in your iPod. Select your iPod from the "Source" list on the left side of the screen if you need to update your software. This will take you to a screen with links to iPod software updates. Click on "Check for Update" to look for the most up-to-date iPod software, and click "Download" and "Install" to install the software. Do not unplug your iPod during installation. Check the box next to "Automatically copy photos to my iPod" to sync a photo folder on your hard drive with an iPod with a color screen. Choose the folder you wish to sync with your iPod from the "Synchronize photos from" menu. Click "Next" to move to the final screen. Click "Register My iPod" to send your personal information to Apple and then click "Finish" to end the installation. Your iPod will appear in the "Source" list on the left side of the screen.

Hello:), I have an A1236 silver I Pod, EMC No:2174 how do i download my windows media player library on it?


You can only use iTunes to transfer music to an iPod.

Install iTunes, and let it find the music on your hard drive.

Can't restore to default. receiveing iPod error


Resolution If you are experiencing these errors, begin by updating to the latest version of iTunes. When you have the current version of iTunes, try the following:
  • Disconnect and reconnect your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Restart your computer and then attempt to restore your iPod.
  • Disable or Enable Disk Use on your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and then attempt to restore.
  • Remove any third-party USB devices you have connected to your computer (it is not necessary to remove your keyboard or mouse).
  • If you use Windows, re-register .dll files as described in article iTunes displays -50 error message when syncing iPod on Windows XP
  • For Windows users, update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers.
Additional Information Note: If you have an iPod shuffle you may need to use the iPod Reset Utility to restore the iPod. If you are not sure which iPod you have, see Apple Support document Identifying iPod models.
If you are using an iPod touch, or iPhone please refer to this article.

Music on apple 80 gig ipod


I honestly don't think you can. If the music isn't on your hard drive that is on your iPod then you WILL lose it if you sync it with the musicless iTunes. To my knowledge you have to re-download what's on your iPod (playlists and all) and if you add or subtract anything and sync that's what you'll have on your iPod.

IPod Errors


Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.

Ipod 3rd Generation


Test the hard drive by holding menu+centre to reset and immediatly holding left+centre when it reboots to enter the ipod diagnostic menu. Use the right arrow to highlight the Memory or HDD menu. Select it and you should be able to find out if the drive is dead.

If the drive is ok, try restoring the ipod through itunes.


Post back here if the drive is wrecked.

Hooking up New IPOD Classic Crashes computer


Try going into the settings screen on the iPod and resetting all settings. If that doesn't work you may be able to use one of the many 3rd party tools available to repair the corrupted data. You may also want to try connecting it to a different computer and running itunes on it there.
