Please can you help I have a white 30G ipod, trying to coonect to laptop running Vista. I have itunes installed and it wont reconize the ipod


You might need a new USB cord. Try launching iTunes before connecting the iPod, and using a different USB port. If that doesn't work, try a different cord ( maybe borrow one )

Ipod freezes when i go to connect it to my computer or charge


even if the screen is blank it definatly should charge, then enst thing i could recommend is to possibly reinstall the ipod firmware or if your daring enough to turn it into a rockbox. google rockbox and you will find that it is free ipod software that many people find better than apple's actual software.

My ipod classic that i just bought used from a friend wont sync


What happens when you plug it into the computer and open itunes? Do you see the ipod device on the left side? If not, check the cable connections. Try another cable. Make sure the ipod is charged. See this article.for instructions on how to sync.
If it's still not working, go to iTunes>Edit>preferences>devices and make sure you haven't disabled the auto syncing box.
Still not working, Check the support options for your model ipod here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

30g ipod rockbox wont sync with itunes after doom install


If you look at the Rockbox documentation, there is a way to reboot your iPod into the original iPod firmware and use the original interface as well as having the ability to boot into the Rockbox firmware.
The Rockbox firmware is great if you want more options for transfer and skins and so on, but it is not as easy to use as the stock iPod interface.
You can also refer to the documentation that will show how to remove Rockbox and go back to the original Apple software. I ran Rockbox for a while but it was more or a pain in the **** than I cared to deal with so I uninstalled it.
Worst case is you can do a full restore in iTunes that will restore the iPod to factory, but it will wipe the music you have loaded. Hope you have a backup.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

My Ipod wont sync with Itunes


It is normal for it to take a while before it syncs. If you want it to be faster, make sure you save files to be synced with your Ipod on your hard disk. And make sure to download latest Itunes with quicktime and also update your ipod software.

If this still does not work. Try to uninstall Itunes and then re-install.

Thanks.

Ipod


i would try sharepod see if that works better.
or you may have to do this:
Get a new cable if everything else works that is your problem
Usually, unplugging, replugging it and then rebooting solves the problem.

your other options are a driver issue..either with the ipod drivers, itunes, or the USB drivers for your computer itself. since your ipod video and psp work fine, you can rule out USB drivers, but that doesn't rule out additional driver problems.

the other option is there's some kind of failure with your ipod..and sometimes if a device starts drawing power before doing any kind of communication with the computer (like when my rockbox-hacked ipod goes into charge only mode) then windows will assume there's a hardwire issue. the best way to determine if it's an issue with your ipods are take them to another computer and see if they work. if they work fine...try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes (back up your music and database) and see if that solves the problem. if none of that solves it and you know the ipod shuffles are good..then your system has suffered from the mysterious driver failure that's plagued a lot of systems. and generally the only real solution is to reinstall windows from scratch.
