I have an ipod classic 160Gb it is really slow, when I press any of the keys it takes ages to respond. sometimes it takes about 5 seconds to get back to the menu

Your iPod's disk is probably badly defragmented. This happens naturally with time; the files which contain your songs and videos are broken up in parts and located in various parts of the disk. Your iPod needs to search all over your disk to get file information, taking longer than it would if your files each were made up of one part.

To defragment your iPod's disk, do the following:

1) Make sure all your iPod's music and videos are also on your computer, and in iTunes.

2) Connect your iPod to your computer, and run iTunes.

3) Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button in the middle of iTunes.

4) Wait for your iPod to finish restoring, then click on the "Sync" button to copy all your songs and videos back to your iPod.

160gb ipod wont load

Theres a few things you can do. Sounds like to me......1. remove ipod support and itunes and reinstall it. completely turn the computer off after each process. Then plug it in and let itunes recognize it, and see if it works. Before you do this try changing your settings. You can go and change settings to default. If that doesnt work COMPLETELY restore your ipod and reinstall ipod support and itunes and that will work for sure.
