Hey Yoli711,
How long have you had this problem for, was there any changes that you made with it? Any new programs? Accessories? A change of the case?

This means either your hard drive or operating system has failed, you could try resetting in iTunes (you will lose any music off of there but it sounds like it's lost anyways). If restoring to factory default still gives you sad face, your drive is likely bad and would need to be replaced.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod When I hit menu the apple logo appears and then is replaced by the X and the apple support message but is not reconized by itunes. Help


95% of the time, when you get the sad face or now on the new 6th generation classics and 3rd and 4th generation nanos it's a cross, it means that you have a faulty hard drive. You can buy hard drives for reasonable prices on ebay. You'll be looking for a Toshiba MK8010GAH if you're using a 5th generation iPod video, and if you're on the 6th generation classic you'll be looking for either a Toshiba MK8022GAA or a Samsung HS081HA. The Samsung's are more reliable.

Repair = more expensive than replacement iPod - call Apple and redeem your warranty if it is still valid.
