When you plug in your iPod, it is telling you that iTunes is having a problem?
1. Uninstall iTunes from your computer.
2. Download the latest version from the website.
3. Re-install iTunes with the new version you downloaded.
4. Try plugging in your iPod now.
If that fails, plug in your iPod, and as soon as it begins syncing, cancel the sync. Restore your iPod. (You may lose all your music etc so make a backup first)
it could be your flash memory is corrupt or that you need to reformat and re-install the latest ipod/itunes software. if you continue having problems you should contact your local apple store they should be able to figure out the problem.
Hi, iPods always say 'do not disconnect' when you connect it to the computer. That is what they are supposed to do. iTunes should open a short time after that. If i Tunes doesn 't open, then click on it to open it. You should see your iPod on the left side.
I suspect that you are not using iTunes to put music into your iPod. You cannot 'drag' music into your iPod. ITunes has to put it there.
You should have all of your music in your iTunes library that you want to put into your iPod. You have to use iTunes to put music into your iPod. Actually, this is the easiest way.
Once your music is in iTunes, plug your iPod into the computer. When your iPod appears in iTunes on the left side, click on the music tab and tell iTunes what music and play lists you want to put into your iPod.
Then click sync at the bottom. The iPod will go into sync mode until all of your music is loaded. Then it will say sync completed. You can then click the arrow next to your iPod to release it from iTunes.
When you want to release it from your computer, click on the little green icon at the bottom right of your computer screen. If you don't see it, click the white arrow. Click on the green plug icon and wait until you see safely isconnect mass storage device from the computer. Click on that and wait until you see, 'It is now safe to disconnect your mass storage device from the computer". Disconnect your iPod now.
Itunes can sync infinite ipods and should have no trouble, so there isnt a problem with having two ipods. Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into
itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol
appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore
mode". this will get rid of any previous users' settings, and hopefully fix anything preventing itunes from syncing with your ipod.
go to applications then utilities then open disk utility on the on the left side all the hard drives will be listed. click on your ipod then click erase, look here
click "erase" and then "ok". when it is done disconnect the ipod, open
itunes and reconnect the ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is
corrupted and i needs to restore it. click ok and then wait for it to
complete the restore.
PC: go to start, my computer. in the
new window your ipod's name will apear right click then click format.
make sure that quic format is checked and then click "ok". when it is
done disconnect the ipod, open itunes and reconnect the
ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is corrupted and i needs to restore
it. click ok and then wait for it to complete the restore.
hold the center button and the menu button until the screen goes black. then hold center and play until the screen goes white and says "OK to disconnect". The ipod has now been forced into disk mode and should now sync. Once you have it connected to itunes, try restoring the ipod to fix the problem forever. If the ipod still will not sync in disk mode, try some of the USB tests in diagnostic mode (info here)
