This is most likely a problem on the PC side, faulty drivers. First uninstall iTunes then reinstall the latest from Apples site (I can help ou locate it if you have problems) then restart the PC. Once restarted try connecting to your PC again. If it does then click the Restore button on the iPod main Page of iTunes. If it still says the files are corrupted then let me know and we can take it from there.

All the best.

Why wont i tunes recognize my i pod and sync my music to it


Your ipod may be corrupted and will need to be wiped and restored.
First of all try another lead to connect your ipod to pc.
Also look inside bottom of ipod to check no bent pins in ipod dock.
Also reinstall itunes incase of program corruption.
If still not working you will have to put ipod in disk mode.
Switch ipod off then switch hold button on and off then hold down centre putton and bottom pause button until TICK appears.You are in Disk mode.
Go to file explorer and right click your ipod if shown,Chose FORMAT then chose restore device defaults and restore. Once formatted open itunes and connect ipod with good lead.Ipod can now be restored from backup or a clean restore can be done

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Computer freezes when checking disk


If your computer froze either on safe mode or normal mode to log in to windows it means the your OS (operating system) is corrupted. You might need to reformat your machine to it's defaulty factory settings. Note that all your files will be deleated if you will reformat it. Before reformatting I advice that you back up first all your files from another machine. To do this, take out your hard disk and connect it to another computer (it will detext as usb or external hard disk). After saving all the files, put the hard disk back to your machine and reformat it then.

A disk read error occurred, press ctrl-alt-+delete to restart


Hello Sir

I am afraid that the hard drive is corrupt. It needs to be reformatted and reinstalled. There is also a good possibility that the hard drive will need to be replaced I am afraid. To make sure ask the technician or who will attend to it to disconnect the hard drive from your laptop. Plug it in an enclosure and copy all of its contents before reformatting. IF IT DOES WORK then don't let them trick you that it needs to be changed as it is just a case of corrupt files and a reformat / reinstall will do it good. In this manner you hit 2 birds with one stone and you get things back up and running :)

Hope that this solution helped you :)

Best Regards
Alx :)

Apple ipod displays only grey apple icon


this should pretty much do you http://www.ipodlinux.org/Key_Combinations

first reset depending on your ipod then quickly useing the correct combination force it into disk mode (already having it plugged into the computer sometimes helps) then use itunes restore utility to fix it itunes will say your ipod needs to be restored and that should do it for you

and one other thing sometimes it is hard to get it to stay in disk mode so try putting it into diagnostic mode then pluging in the dock connector then selecting disk mode from the options
