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.

Resolution If this happens, the iPod software may have been damaged. Put iPod into Disk Mode, then restore or update iPod's software.
  1. Put iPod into disc mode
  2. iPod should appear in the iTunes Source pane and on the desktop or in a Finder window, or in the My Computer window.
  3. If a message appears that says the volume could not be mounted and asks if you want to initialize the disk, choose to initialize iPod's disk. Use Mac OS Extended format (HFS Plus) if you have a Mac, or FAT32 if you have a Windows PC.

    Warning: This process cannot be undone. All of your songs, videos, and other files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
  4. Follow the steps to update or restore iPod. If you manually put iPod into Disk Mode it may need to be reset before you can use it.
  5. If you cannot put iPod into Disk Mode after performing these steps, it may need to be repaired. You can arrange for repair at the iPod Service Website.

Ipod crashed, sad ipod face, do i have to get a new ipod? i already went to apple support. doesn't work. ??


There are a few last things you can do. Try entering diagnostic mode by holding the center and left buttons together on bootup. You can also try to see if itunes will recognize it when connected. If so, try to do a restore.

I have an 80gb iPod Video, and it hangs up on the Apple logo. It won't show up on iTunes for 64bit Vista, the latest version, and only sometimes on my PC, OS Vista 64bit. Resetting it, restoring, and...


Silly question, have you tried the ipod on someone else's computer to ensure that it is for sure the ipod?
It does sound to me like your hard drive in the ipod has crashed. I would still try it though. I would even try putting it into disc mode while it is connected to power to see if that will work. If it does go into disc mode, restore it as before and let it charge over night or for about six to eight hours. Then after that if it still does not work while not connected to power you simply need a new battery. If not its the hard drive. Below i've posted a step by step on putting an ipod into disc mode just in case you need it. :)


Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode 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. 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.


I do hope that this is helpful to you and that your issue is resolved easily. :)

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
