Ipod 30g is locked on do not disc screen ,I cannot get it unpluged no matter what I try. I can get the usb cord unpluged from the computer but not the ipod itself !! Any Ideas. Thanks.
I do not know if this is what you are having difficulties with but when I first got the 30 gig iPod I did not realize that I needed to squeeze the plug on both this sides to remove it from the iPod. If this is not your difficulty then perhaps you should try to describe it in more detail.

Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord. Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to. Hope this helps, Rob
First of all download Itunes if you haven't done that already. Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the ccomputer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. Now with iTunes still open look under devices click on the little ipod icon and then click on the name and you can add your name and press enter. Press the little triangle next to the name you added to disconnect fron iTunes and unplug the USB cable. As for adding a new passcode, go into your ipod and go to settings on your ipod and go to general and go to passcode. its only a 4 number combination.
I hope this helped.
Install new version of itunes and open it on your computer. Then plug the USB cord between your computer and ipod. A ipod icon will show up on the computer screen and you should click on it. Then click on create a new user account and follow the directions from there.
This picture means you need to sync the new ipod with your computer. Meaning they got to get close and acquainted.
Restart your computer. Open up itunes and wait for it to load. Then take the USB sync cord and connect one end to the ipod and the other end to the USB port on your computer. Click set up new ipod and type in a name you want to use. Follow the on screen instructions and don't disconnect the ipod until your computer says its done and its safe to disconnect.
Once the iPod is attached to the iPod and USB port in the computer, an icon will appear at the bottom of the computer desktop. The icon is from removing the USB Mass Storage Device
Now, click on the enject icon and it will show which drive the USB cord is attached to. Once the icon is clicked on, the iPod will show an arrow going down and reading "OK to disconnect". Once able to disconnect, the USB cord can be removed from iPod.
Another way to eject the iPod from USB cord is through iTunes. Once anything you want sync'd to your iPod is complete, a message will appear on the iPod reading, "OK to disconnect". Just like it did on the ejecting icon on your desktop.
Well, it sounds as though your battery is shot. However, before completely giving up i would restore the ipod in itunes and then let it fully charge. After it says "fully" charged, disconnect and test. if it still has no charge, reset it by holding down both the menu and center buttons until you see an apple appear on the screen. If after these steps it still does not charge i would check into getting a new battery either through iPodbatterydepot.com or by calling apple tech support at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273)Good luck
