Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player
When i plug my ipod in computer,it doesn't come up in the panel.
If you've explored all software errors that could cause this and the problem still persists, try to listen to the hard drive while the iPod is syncing. If you hear a repetitive read access sound coming from the iPod somewhere in the syncing process you may have a broken hard drive, if the HDD sounds just fine, it's more likely to be a broken logic board. You can try to replace those components yourself, there are ipod repair guide websites online that teach you iPod Repair skills to some extent, but you should have a little tech background to embark on such endeavors and definitely be PAST your warranty period already.

Most of the time, your iPod won't come up because of a slightly dodgy hard drive. There's a couple of ways to solve this. The first one would be to get another iPod of the same model from a trusting friend or something, take the back off and swop the hard drives. Then plug the other iPod in. It will want to restore. Go through the restore and then swop it back. It should ask to restore now in your iPod. The second one is to buy a zif 1.8" usb hard drive caddy from ebay (should be under £10). Open it and attach your hard drive, wait for it to be recognized by your PC, then right click on it and format it as FAT32. Put it back in your iPod and it should want to restore. Or, buy a new hard drive.
