SOURCE: when i connect my ipod and wanna syncronize it is

Yes to use a mac formatted ipod with windows you must reformat. But a PC formatted ipod can be read by a MAC. It seems silly and complicated, just remember ipods came out before OSX and ipods had a different file format. Almost all ipods are "PC" formatted now so people dont have this issue unless you want it that way.

Can't get new ipod to connect to network


I think you should try formatting it. Plug it into iTunes, and when it connects, press "Restore" and let it restore.

My ipod is fully formated it is no working now what to do?


Hi, did you format properly?

If not follow this step below

What we are going to do is ERASE your iPod and then re-install the iPod's software. If your iPod has a software problem, this will probably fix it:

WARNING: YOU WILL LOSE ALL MUSIC, CONTACTS AND EVENTS ON YOUR iPOD. IF POSSIBLE, YOU MAY WANT TO BACKUP THESE FILES.

1. To erase your iPod, do the following:

ERASE YOUR iPOD (MAC OSX)

* If you have OSX, you can use Disk Utility (Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities). If you have a PC running Microsoft Windows, click here for more instructions or read the next paragraph.
* Select your iPod in the Disk Utility window and press the Repair button
* Then press the Erase button to erase the iPod's hard drive. Extended Journaled should answer your next question.

ERASE YOUR iPOD (WINDOWS XP)

* Open "My Computer" on your Desktop
* Select "IPOD". It should be listed next to your C drive.
* Right click and chose "Format"
* Select "FAT 32" and
* Reboot Computer

ERASE YOUR iPOD (WINDOWS VISTA)

If these Vista instructions are wrong, please let us know. Vista was such a piece of **** we banned it from the office.

* Open "My computer" on your Desktop
* Right-click on iPod
* Click "Format"
* Select "Restore Device Defaults"
* Press "Start"

2. After you erase your iPod, you need to run the Restore function before your iPod will work properly. To Restore your iPod, do the following:

* Connect the iPod to your computer using the FireWire/USB cable that came with it.

* Open iTunes. Make sure you are using the newest version of iTunes. You can download iTunes updates from http://www.itunes.com

* iTunes may sense that the iPod is connected and prompt you to install any necessary software. If not, select your iPod from the Source column on the left side of your iTunes window. There will be several tabs along the top of the screen such as: Summary, Music, Photo, Contacts, etc. You should select the Summary tab.

* Click Restore.

* You may need to type in an Admin user's name and password. An alert box will ask you to confirm the restore process. Say yes.

* When the factory settings have been restored, unplug the FireWire/USB cable from iPod.

* When prompted by the iPod, reconnect the FireWire/USB cable. After the iPod has updated itself and restarted, you should see the message "Do not disconnect" flashing on the screen.

* You may be prompted by iTunes to type in a name for your iPod. Feel free to get creative.

* The "Automatically update my iPod" option is selected by default. Deselect this option if you wish and click Done. The iTunes main window appears, and the download status is displayed in the iTunes display.

* Wait until the iTunes display says the update is complete.

* Quit iTunes.

* Disconnect the FireWire/USB cable from iPod. After a few moments, the Language display appears on the iPod screen.

* Select a language. If you screw up this step click here. One time I accidentally selected Chinese for the language. That sucked.

If the iPod does not turn on at all, disconnect it from power and let it sit unconnected for approximately 24 hours. Then repeat this procedure.

If your iPod is still unresponsive, throw it away. Just kidding. If it is still under warranty, go to the AppleCare iPod Support Page to arrange for service http://depot.info.apple.com/iPod/. If your iPod is out of warranty, then use our VIP Repair Service to get it fixed.

After this process and still does not work, that means you will need to get a new ipod..

Have a nice day.

Ipod nano 2g white cannot detect to pc


When you connect your iPod to your computer, does the iPod itself change to saying Connected or Do Not Disconnect? If not I would recommend putting the iPod into disc mode. After it is disc mode you will need to restore the iPod using iTunes. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode as well as restoring. Please feel free to comment any questions or concerns.



--------------------------------------------------

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".

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.

My nano won't restore.


Try putting the ipod in disk mode by pressing the center and play buttons after resetting it (by holding down the center and menu buttons). You will know it is in disk mode when it shows a check mark on the ipod screen. Then plug it into your vcomputer and format it using windows.

After you format the ipod, try disconnecting and reconnecting to the computer and restore and see if that fixes your problem.
