The hard drive is damaged (maybe you dropped it or squished it?...). Replacement drives can be found online by googling it.

    You will want to force the iPod into disc mode before reconnecting to your computer for the restore process within iTunes. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode just in case you need the information.
    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.
    Connect the iPod to your computer; 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.

    My computer will not recognize it.


    I would start with attempting to reset the iPod to get it to connect to the computer. If that does not work, attempt to force it into disc mode. And if all else fails try another USB port on your computer or a friends computer. If it does not work try a different cable with your iPod to ensure that it is not just a cable connection :) Below is a step by step on resetting an iPod as well as disc mode just in case you need the information :)
    Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
    When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

    Silly question, have you tried the ipod on someone else's computer to ensure that it is for sure the ipod?
    It does sound to me like your hard drive in the ipod has crashed. I would still try it though. I would even try putting it into disc mode while it is connected to power to see if that will work. If it does go into disc mode, restore it as before and let it charge over night or for about six to eight hours. Then after that if it still does not work while not connected to power you simply need a new battery. If not its the hard drive. Below i've posted a step by step on putting an ipod into disc mode just in case you need it. :)

    I have an ipod classic with 20 gig. When I attempt to restore it it to original settings I get unknown error 1439. What can I do to get it to work again?



    Symptoms When restoring or updating an iPod in iTunes 7 or later, I'm guessing you got a message saying an unknown error occurred 1469
    ResolutionIf you are experiencing these errors, begin by updating to the latest version of iTunes. When you have the current version of iTunes, try the following:
    • Remove any third-party USB devices you have connected to your computer (it is not necessary to remove your keyboard or mouse).
    • Restart your computer without the iPod connected. While it is restarting, you will need to force your ipod into disc mode.
    • 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.
    • Now, with the ipod in disc mode attempt to restore.
    • If that does not resolve your issue, try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and then attempt to restore.
    • If after all these steps you still have not been able to successfully restore your ipod, I would recommend going to:
    • http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1539
    Follow the steps posted by apple in the solution number one box. I had this issue once and was able to resolve it with that article. If for some reason this does not resolve your issue please do let me know.

    Disc read error


    Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

    Reasons for Disc Read Error
    1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
    2. Disk surface dirty.
    3. Lens surface dirty.

    Here is what you can try doing.

    1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

    2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

    3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

    Other troubleshooting that you can try.

    Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

    Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
    Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
    Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


    Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

    From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

    If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


    Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.

    Your computer sees your iPod as another disc drive. When you sync check you have not got "enable for disc use" checked on the summary page. If it wont sync movies right click on it and select "convert selection for iPod", make sure you have selected the movie on the movie tab (or select "All Movies")
