Unfortunately the only thing I could do to rectify this problem was "restore" my iPod which essentially means deleting everything and resyncing again. Very frustrating! I found this would happen if I plugged my iPod into my work computer where I didn't have full admin rights to the machine. It was corrupting the main file iTunes reads to see the directories on the iPod. So if you happen to be plugging it into another machine this might be the cause of it happening as I haven't had the problem since I stopped plugging it into my work machine.

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

I cant get my ipod to sync. the message i get is, "the ipod jeremy cannot be synced. the required disk cannot be found." At the same time, i see the device on itunes


Hi there,
Something has corrupted so you need to reinstall iTunes, restore the ipod then resync it.
Download the very latest version of iTunes from the Apple site. This will update all the drivers on your PC, so install that.
Once installed, before connecting you ipod, press and hold the Select and Menu buttons on the ipod until the apple logo appears, then press and hold the Select and Play/pause buttons until it displays 'ok to disconnect'. Now connect it to the pc - this puts it in disk mode. When it appears on itunes click the 'Restore' button on it's main page.
That should, once it's updated, restarted (let it do this itself) and resynced, have you up and running again.

All the best

Does not sync


I would go ahead and do a system restore - this is a separate method from the resetting all settings. The restore will delete all songs and hoepfully replace any key system files that may have been lost, just in case too many were loaded onto player initially.

There are also the 5 R's listed in the manual.

Does not sync

Try to do a full restore in disk mode.
1. Put your iPod into disk mode - Press top and center buttons simultaneously until you see the Apple symbol come up. As soon as you see the Apple symbol press the center and bottom (play) buttons simulataneously until you see a check mark. After this try to restore in iTunes. We recommend manually managing music versus syncing. But that is a personal choice. If you sync then going to another computer will wipe your music.
2. If 1 doesn't work try removing all USB devices from your computer and reboot. Then restore again either normally or disk mode.
3. Let us know, if you need further assistance.

You'll need to reset and then resync the device. To do a reset you turn the lock on and then off and hold down the center select and menu buttons, at the same time, for five seconds until you see the Apple logo appear. Then, plug the unit into your computer and sync. In iTunes you'll want to choose to restore the unit. That will erase and then restore your syncronized data, as well as update the firmware.
