If you're on a Mac, open up "disk utility" (aplications>Utilities folder) select the ipod in the left column & click the "erase" tab at the top. There is now a menu in the middle of the screen that should say "Mac OS extended (Journaled)". If you're going to use this iPod on your Mac, Keep it this way. If you want to use this iPod for PC, select "MS DOS". Now click "Erase". Then you simply launch iTunes, and click the "Restore" button to put the iPod software back on it. If you're on a PC it should be pretty much the same, except you do the reformatting in Windows' "Disk Management" utility.

Hello , destiny_nod
If nothing works , you need to extract the drive out of your lappy and connect it to a healthy computer . You will be able to format the drive .

Reformating system u`ll loose infos.why?


Hi:
This means that when you reformat your system, any documents, pictures, or favorite places will be wiped off the computer, and will not be on the computer after the reformat is completed. To save your personal info, you need to copy it before you reformat.
If you don't have anything on the computer that you want to save, it isn't a problem!

You must have a 3rd or 4th gen Ipod. It should not do this with a reset. If you reformat it through Itune , then it will. The plug into a power outlet means it is trying to reformat. If it will not, your hard drive is corupted or logic board. If it is the hard drive and you can get it to show on your computer, you can go to your disc utilities and erase the hard drive by writing zeros. then connect to Itunes and reformate. Plug into a power wall charger and it should complete. You need a good charge in your battery. If your battery is not charging or needs to charge , that will stop it from completing a reformat. I hope this helps.

if it is working then why need to reformat?

try to back up your files first before you reformat it, just copy paste all the imporatnt data to a folder on your computer, after that you can now reformat your flash drive
