OK these are my favorite there at at least a half a dozen possible problems

most apparent the hard drive shot it's wad

but hey there is light cf adapters and a cf card are way cheaper than a replacement hard drive oor sending to apple

oor you can get adventerios (like cheerios but different)

it could just be the harddrive being a wuss try (i know this sounds bad but what have you got to lose)hitting the ipod with the top while it is pointing down

why you ask the hard drive could just be lose (it has happened to mine twice)(go figure?)

and you can still force disk mode wether or not it will help it probably won't but you can try restoring it with itunes (might work or not if the hard drive is ka put)

and if you have any question or concerns i will try to help

SOURCE: I've a A1059 Ipod Model.

In many cases, the 20gb Classic and Photo models have problems with the Hard Drive. I have found over time, if you open the iPod, and remove the hard drive from the cable, remove the cable from the board and assemble it back together in reverse the problem will go away. The ipod cables tend to seat and don't make good contact.
to open your ipod, lay it on it's metal back, slide a guitar pick down the side between the metal case and the plastic front. slide it up and down the length of the the same to the top and bottom. it should pop open. Up near the headphone jack and switch the is a cable attached, be careful not to open the ipod to fast, use a guitar pick to pry up the cable from the mother board and that will expose the inside. Now to remove the hard drive hold the black tab on the hard drive cable and pull the hard drive free straight back from the cable. To free the cable from the motherboard, lift the black lever clip up and open. now look at the cable end. If it is v shaped, straighten it and reinsert it in the motherboard and puc the black clip flat again. reassemble the ipod and give it a try.

Welcome to Fixya!

iPod battery can drain over time. Extreme cold or heat can adversely affect the battery.

What to do?

Replace the lithium ion battery. There are many online stores that sells the iPod battery kit. It includes the battery and the tools you will need. The installation is easy but you need to be careful.

Here is a video on replacing an iPod battery.

Hope this helps you. Please feel free to come back if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Fixya!

on the ipods the most common way to delete songs off of it is thru the itunes software, connect your ipod and itunes should open up and if not make sure you have itunes installed and running you can get the latest itunes for free from or just google itunes, once you have itunes runing your ipod should appear in the sidebar click on it and then click on the songs list under it, then select the songs you want to delete and hit delete

How do you delete songs from your Apple iPod 4 GB Silver?

You can set your iTunes to "manually manage music and video", then plug in your iPod to iTunes, and delete the songs from your iPod with iTunes.
Or you may try this ipod tool, it can help you delete iPod music easily, Much better than iTunes
Hope it helps.

Deleting files

HI,  Ipods don't work like normal flash drives.  They can only work by syncing them.  You cannot find or delete the songs from the ipod or from the drive that it appears in.  To remove a song from your ipod you need to go into itunes, and locate the playlist which is being synced to your ipod.  Then find the song and remove it from the playlist.  Then you need to plug in your ipod and press sync again.  Hope this helps
