Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

My iPod Classic keeps shutting off and back on

I started to add new songs to my iPod and I ran into 2 problems. First, my iPod froze right when i plugged it into my computer. So I restarted it by holding menu and the center button and after that it worked. I continued adding songs and when I was done, I unplugged my iPod and it was froze again so I restarted it again but now it gets to where the screen shows the apple and then it shuts off and restarts again. But it will not continue past the apple and every time it shuts off it makes a clicking sound. Is my iPod ruined? And if it isn't, how can I fix it?

IPOD Classic 80G apple icon then red x icon or restore in itunes


I know you tried to fix it, but trying multiple times may work.

The message "go to www.apple.com/support/ipod" usually is preceded by, or followed by, the Apple logo or the sad face icon. It directs you to the Apple support site because either the iPod software is corrupted or their is a hardware problem. You should try to reset the iPod (try several times). If that doesn't right the iPod, then try to restore it (which will erase the entire iPod and reload the software.

Follow the links above and see if that gets your iPod working. You might want to see if you can update the iPod/iTunes software or try this troubleshooting guide. If it is really a hardware problem then your iPod needs to be taken in for service.

My apple ipod classic froze half way through a song welst i connected it to a computer now its froze on the song and it wont charge


Press both the center button and menu until the circular spinning icon shows that the thing is rebooting.  Also, try holding play for 5-10 seconds to shut the thing off.  Then hold play for 5-10 seconds to turn it back on.

My 120 GB I pod classic Doesn't play the next song


Hi. Check that when you plug your iPod in that it isn't selected to "Shuffle," play which can happen if you are expecting to go through songs. There is also another reason and one I didnt know about until I took my iPod Classic back to my retailer thinking there was a problem;
If the songs on your iTunes or default device isn't an AAC file the iPod will fail to play it. On MAC systems simply click the file that you want to put onto your iPod, right click and scroll to "Get Info." If the file doesn't say it is an AAC file it won't play on your iPod. Scroll further down on the list to "Create AAC version." This takes milliseconds, doesn't affect the sound quality but condenses the data fit for the iPod Classic. Once that's done you can add any song you like.
Generally when you put a CD into a MAC it will automatically change the AIFF files into AAC which means you don't need to manually convert. AAC is usually needed when individual tracks are called up and put onto your iPod. I hope this helps you - it drove me nuts until I found out about the AAC.

Ipod Classic 80GB won't sync


i took my ipod to the apple store, they ran diagnostics, and it passed everything. i thaught it was a spot on the hard drive, becsue in the process in syncing it stopped at the same number each time (i.e 81 of 334) and freeze. i recently downloaded a song from a website, when i put it on my ipod when it still worked, it would freexze my ipod each time i tried to play it. it was just that one song. then i synced again, things were fine with it for a whle until i sunced it a month later. Apple told me there was a bad song pon there and i instanty knew it was that one and i deleted it. ever since, my ipod is fine.
to find the bad songs, Apple told me to make playlists of my library, in like quarters, sync one at a time if for example the 3rd playlist has problems going on, the song is on there. and just narrow it down. i deleted each song that froze in syncing like 81 of 334.. i would delete #81. (it gives the title you know that) i ended up just having to delete 1 podcast episode and one song, and things are fine.
if you have this problem, plug your ipod up to itunes, on itunes go under the menu , under help> diagnostics. (second to last one) and run it on connection, or anyting you want.. to make sure it isn't on the connection. if not, you have a bad song. also KEEP YOUR SOFTWARE UP TO DATE!!@

Wanna copy music to an ipod classic without using itunes


Other options are RealPlayer (has a iPod plug-in), and a relatively new program which appears promising called Songbird. Both of these two programs are popular for transferring music to iPods without the use of Apple iTunes.

Update songs in IPOD


After your iPod shows up in iTunes, highlight your iPod if it doesn't automatically come up. Then on the first tab labeled Summary, under Options click the box that says Manually manage music and videos. Then you can highlight all the songs in your library that you want to add to your iPod and drag them onto the iPod. The files already on your iPod will not be overwritten.
