Re: ipod wont show up on itunes
Hey there Twinkle, The wierd symbol when charging is normal.
The HISPEED thing is because the USB socket you are plugging into is not powered so it won't work at all in this kind of socket. The best way to connect it is using the main USB socket in the PC or MAC you are using rather than an external hub. If you do use an external hub make sure it is powered v2.0 USB.
To fix the ipod reset thing, once you do get it connected to your pc do a software update on it (this will probably come up automatically when you've connected it) or click the 'Restore' button and this should fix it.

When you have a high speed device like the ipod plugged into a non high speed usb hub, all that means is that it will take the ipod about twenty times longer to load up under itunes then it will using a high speed port. Try connecting the ipod to a different usb port and see if that one is a high speed port (if it is, it will most likely have 2.0 written beside it, and if it does not have it, when you plug it in, it will tell you if it is a non high speed usb port. The same message should pop up. Try all of the usb ports on your computer. You should have at least 1 high speed port.
For it to recongnize, maybe try: 1: go to control panel 2:add hardware 3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware" 4:scroll down and select install new hardware device 5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list 6:scroll down to windows portable devices 7:and choose MTP device this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer ---John
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.
Your ipod has to be plugging into a high speed usb port, that's your problem. Don't use the usb ports on front of your computer, use the one's in the back. Those are typically high speed. If you have an older computer, you might not have high speed usb ports and you'll need to purchase an pci usb 2.0 adapter.
Once you get it connected to the computer and you sync with your library it will remove any songs that were previously on the ipod.
