Ipod will not connect or charge

I have an 80gb ipod classic and it works fine, but when I connect it to my lap top it does nothing. I have tried to reset, I have tried different usb cable and port but nothing seems to work. It just seems as if it is not hooked up at all. Please Help.

    I have vista, maybe I should have added that it has worked just fine in the past and then all of a sudden I connected one day and it just would not do anything. What would cause it to work fine one day and then the next day nothing.

Ok this use to happen to me. First uninstall it and then install it again. That way it also gets the latest version. Now check and see if it works on other computers. If so try using a different port to put it in. If dosn't work on ANY computer, its a effect in the Ipod itself and you will have to repair it. Im not totally sure if this will work, but go into "Computer" (my computer) click on the devices with removable storage and click on it and see if it will open with itunes. If nothing seems to work you can always buy a wall charger or radio that charges your ipod without the use of a computer.

    Oh also if nothing i said works above, try the following.
    Reboot the computer

    Change USB ports

    Try a different cable

    Update USB driver software

    Uninstall and reinstall USB driver

    Try the iPod and cable on another computer to rule out a bad Pod.

    Reboot the iPod (most are switch on then off the hold and press and hold menu and center until the apple logo appears.)

    It might need some time. If the battery is dead it might take up to 15
    minutes before there is enough power in the battery for the iPod to
    come on.

    If you use Win XP with the Yahoo security software, it can take a few minutes before anything happens

Ipod classic 80gb won't open and charge


  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Jensen vm9412 and ipod classic


The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible.
I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.

Cheers

Ipod 6th Generation won't connect to VM9412


All I can tell through my searching, is that the Jlink only works on gen3-gen5 ipods. I have a gen 6 80gb classic, and while I can hear the audio from the movie playing, I have no video. Music plays fine.
