Sounds like you need to restore it in iTunes and reload it. It sounds to me like the data is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
Connect it to the computer and open iTunes. See if it lists the songs. If it does you may be able to fix the database by clicking on the first track and then pressing shift and clicking on the last track. That will select all of the songs. Then right click on the list and select either check selected or uncheck selected. It may rebuild the database and fix the problem. If it doesn't, reconnect it and when it shows up in the list on the left, left click on the iPod once and the info screen will come up. That will tell you what version on firmware you are running and so on. Under that there are 2 buttons. Update and Restore. Select restore and then reload it. That restores it back to factory but it will wipe all the data. One of those solutions should fix it.

Cheers and best wishes

I will try and make this as short as possible and hope you understand what I am asking. I just got an Ipod Classic last month and signed up with Itunes and then downloaded about 1300 songs from my cd...


You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.

Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.

There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is:

Hope this helps!

One way that should work is to put your ipod into dfu mode. to do this you must:
  1. Hold down the sleep and power button for ten seconds till the screen goes black.
  2. when the screen goes back release the power button and continue to hold the home button until the screen shows connect to itunes.
  3. Plug your ipod in your computer start Itunes and click restore.

*NOTE* by doing this you will lose everything that is currently stored on your ipod.

My ipod has been frozon for a day i have tried everything and its brand new also the apple is stuck on the screen can anyone help


Make sure the HOLD switch on the top is in the "off" (unlocked) position i.e. the orange indicator should be hidden from view. If the iPod is switched on then try pressing and holding down the play button on the clickwheel for a few seconds and see if it switches off. If it is now switched off, press and hold down BOTH the centre button and the menu button on the clickwheel for about 10 seconds. Try this a few times and if it still doesn't resolve the issue, connect your iPod to the data cable onto your PC/Laptop and start iTunes. You can then use the RESTORE facility within iTunes to return your iPod to its factory settings. WARNING! This will remove any existing tracks you have stored on the iPod.

My ipod wont stay charged


This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

Apple ipod nano wont play the full song


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
