Try starting the Ipod in disc mode attached to your computer and then reformat the drive using disc utility. That should map out any bad sectors. Then try running the Itunes restore software. Hope that gets you up and running again.

A folder shows up on startup and notice to contact apple support. 20gb 4th gen


Ipod is not ABLE TO FIND THE OS ON YOUR HDD.
try to bring it close to your ear an try to hear. See if you can listen to clicking sound. if it does click, your in trouble as your hdd is messed up..
nothing much you can do about it, just when its trying to start and it starts clicking bang your ipod ( on ur palm ) as this would help the hdd needle to skip and bad sectors and might work again !
good luck.

I took my ipod to factory settings as one person told me to do and the computer still does not recognize the ipod. Its not the ipod, it's the computer!


May be the usb port. If you have a direct usb port at the back of the unit, try it. If don´t, look at the installation of the usb in your settings.
