you restored your ipod correct? (just the music is erased) not format ? (ipod is zapped)....ok..lets play with the restore part...plug up ipod to pc....do not open itunes (close it, x it out) ...go to my computer you should see a new drive on it (ipod)....double click ipod and copy the software (from ipod) it should be 4 folders and hidden files too...paste it to a temp folder on the pc....now right click ipod drive and format it (yes this will erase everything on it)...once format is completed reinstall the software from the temp folder back to ipod......now this is finish....update itunes to the newest version (even if u have it already overwrite it)....you now have a brand new ipod...........
in the beginning i ask if you restored or formatted (if you had formatted, you would not find nor see any software)......you would be better off asking a friend/family if they have the same ipod can you copy just the software (you would copy their software to a temp file, then on to yours same as above) .........i hope this works out for u.....feel free to rate the help
That Means Ur Device Has an "ERROR" For Sure -
U Should Get it To Apple - It shows Yellow Sign in DM -
Sure U have an Error - Why Dont U Try by Formatting Ur PC-
Then ur Device n Finaly See if it Works -
Trying restarting your iPod (by holding down the menu and center button at the same time until you get the Apple logo), then plugging it back into the computer. iTunes should recognize it then. I had the same problem recently and that solved it.
stupid question i know but please make sure you hve downloaded the correct countries version of itunes - here in aust a lot of ppl accidentally download english version - it dont work. try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes if that doesnt work and try reseting unit itself - menu and centre button hold both down untill apple icon appears.......
