If u don't have itunes installed then the ipod should have disc use enabled automatically when you plug it in to the computer. Are you running windows xp? Perhaps connecting usb devices is blocked by admin aswell?

Cant download a pic disc onto a program. cant transfer files


. Go to Sharepod Folder. Double click on Sharepod.exe. If message “Failure to
initialize” appear on your screen, you need to download the Microsoft.NET
Framework 2.0 to run sharepod. Note this program is installed by default under
vista.

Please be careful not to run Sharepod and iTunes simultaneously as iPod might get
out of sync with both software.


Disable iTunes
  • Ensure Ipod is connected to your computer. Select removable disk in My Computer,
  • Open iTunes if not set as default. Select iPod and click Settings and disable option Open iTunes when Ipod is attached.
  • Then, scroll down and uncheck Options.
  • Next step is to Enable disk use and click Apply.

I downloaded some pictures twice and I cannot find how/where to delete them. iPod 8GB, model #1236


You can not do it directly in the iPod. You have to use iTunes for deleting them.

Imported photos can be deleted from the iPod disk while it is attached to a Computer.

Connect the iPod to a Computer.

When the iPod icon appears in the iTunes Source list, select it.

If the Summary pane isn't showing, click the Summary tab.

Click "Enable disk use".

All imported photos are located in the "DCIM" folder on the iPod disk.

Delete the images which you want.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

My ipod cant download musis because it come up in windows media


You will need to restore the iPod. Since it is not showing up in iTunes, you will need to put the iPod into disc mode before connecting it to your computer. Below I have posted a step by step on putting an ipod into disc mode as well as restoring it. (Just in case you need the information) Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Once it is in disc mode and connected to your computer, open iTunes.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

After everything is complete, eject the iPod and disconnect it. Then without putting it into disc mode reconnect it to see if it will load normally in itunes.
If you still cannot use the iPod normally after these trouble shooting steps, you most likely have a hardware issue and will need to either get it serviced or replaced. I do hope that is not the case though. Please let me know if you find this article helpful towards your issue. :) Good luck

How do I Enable Disk Management for the iPod Touch

I have a new computer and dont want to lose all my songs currently on my Ipod


probably not but you can look here, it is a free download and will enable you to export your ipod data into itunes, so you will not lose it. Then you can sync your ipod again once you have refreshed your library with new songs that you want
