Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player
Alright, here's the problem: I plug my ipod into my computer and nothing recognizes it. By that I mean my computer doesn't recognize it, Itunes doesn't recognize it and my ipod doesn't realize it's connected, it just does that beeping sound when you plug something in. Also, I had it plugged it when the computer was turning on, but when the process was complete the ipod had disconnected somehow. I've checked to make sure the USB is connected, I've switched USB cords 4 times and I've restarted my computer. I tried going into my computer management thing, but nothing recognizes it at all. I recently had to reformat my ipod to a windows and when I did, it told me I need a newer version of itunes. OF COURSE, when I tried that my computer itself had to be updated, so I reformated my computer as well. So now I have a newer version of XP (but not Vista) and the newest version of itunes, but still nothing works. When I had the old versions, the ipod was recognized and was able to be reformated, just not updated. I have no idea what to do and I'm going crazy. Help?
Put the iPod in disk mode by pressing the menu button and the center button until the apple appears and then switch quickly to play/pause and center button and hold till it says disk mode. Now plug it in your computer and see if the computer sees it. It is acting like a disk drive now.
go to my computer and see if it shows, if so open and explore.
with itunes open go to device and choose contacts, right click on the contact sample and choose open with iTunes. this may force mount the iPod. If this works you can restore it.
