Try this out: And let me know the status

  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
  5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
Then try restoring the ipod using Itunes...

My ipod 30g dont work only show www.apple technical support


Hi,

The problem *might* be solved by resetting or restoring your iPod. Otherwise, you'll probably need to take the iPod into an Apple store to see what's wrong.

Here's how to reset your iPod:
  1. Turn on the iPod, and make sure it's unlocked (no red is showing by the switch at the top)
  2. Press the "menu" button (at the top of the circle) and the "select" button (middle of the circle) at the same time and hold them down for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo on the screen
Here's how to restore your iPod:
NOTE: this will delete all music, etc. from your iPod
  1. Plug your iPod into the computer
  2. Open iTunes
  3. Click on "Restore" (on the "Summary" tab)
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions.


You'll need to resync all your music etc. to get it back on the iPod after it's been restored.
If your iPod does not show up in iTunes, use these directions to put it into disk mode: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363
Then try the restore directions again.

Hope this helps!

Your iPod touch is currently in DFU mode. You must plug it in to your computer and restore.
For detailed instruction, click here but you don't have to do the steps in putting your device to DFU mode, you should proceed to the part where it says: "... restore to 3.1.2..."
Good luck!

What can you do if you forgot the passcode to your ipod touch


If you cannot remember your passcode, then you can place the iPod into recovery mode and restore the iPod.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod touch off.
2) Hold down the Home button and plug the iPod into the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) When iTunes recognizes that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow the onscreen instructions to restore the iPod.

Note: Restoring the iPod may cause you to lose some data currently on the iPod.

If you cannot unlock the iPod after this, you will need to call Apple Customer Support.

My itouch is disabled how do i unlock it


Plug the iPod touch into the computer that it was last synced with.

Once iTunes recognizes the iPod you should be able to unlock it with your password.

If you do not remember your password or you still cannot unlock the iPod, then you should try to restore the iPod.

To restore the iPod:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3) Continue to hold the Home button until the iTunes symbol appears on the iPod's screen. The iPod is now in recovery mode.
4) After iTunes has recognized that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow iTunes instructions and restore the iPod.

If restoring the iPod doesn't work, then you will need to call Apple customer support.

I plug an ipod video 30G in my computer, and my computer cant detect it1 but my ipod is charging, and also d code i forgot it


You will want to force the iPod into disc mode (while unconnected from computer) and restore using iTunes on your computer. Below I have posted a step by step for both parts of the resolution. If for any reason this does not resolve your issue, or you have difficulties with any part; please do let me know. I am eager to be of assistance.

Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod. The screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)


After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
