Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

64 bit vs. 32 bit ipod

When I purchased my IPOD classic i was using a 64 bit PC. I recently purchased a 32 bit pc and thought, great...now the issues with th 64 bit PC are gone as far as my ipod is concerned. WRONGO! Itunes now does not recognize my IPOD even though the PC itself does. It gives me an error stating that itunes did not load the required software to communicate with my IPOD correctly. Everything else in ITUNES works fine. I've gone through the Apple support recommendations with no success. Apple Support was abominable (I believe they just read their own website and have no direct knowledge). I'm thinking that once the ipod used itunes in the 64 bit envvironment, it cannot adjust back to itunes in the 32 bit environment. Any thoughts on fixing this?

    The link appears to be no longer valid. The fix would make sense but unable to access that program through the apple website.

When i connect my ipod and wanna syncronize it is giving me this massage(itunes has detected a macintosh-formatted ipod. you must restore this ipod before you can use it on windows)


Yes to use a mac formatted ipod with windows you must reformat. But a PC formatted ipod can be read by a MAC. It seems silly and complicated, just remember ipods came out before OSX and ipods had a different file format. Almost all ipods are "PC" formatted now so people dont have this issue unless you want it that way.

You need to format the ipod like a harddrive. Right now it is probably in fat32 (32 meaning 32 bit = 4,000,000,000 bytes of data, or 4 gb.) Try reseting your ipod in itenes.

No sound from my 30GB ipod in the car and Bose sound dock


It sounds like an issue with the internal motherboard and possibly the audio jack. I'd reccomend taking it into a local apple store to have them fix it or contacting them via their support website here. Also you may want to consider their price quotes vs purchasing a new one when you talk to them.

Ipod


You're going to have to tell me a bit more to know what the problem is. Are you talking about iTunes? Does your PC see the iPod at all? Is the iPod operating normally otherwise? Please give as much detail as possible so that I can help.
