Are you having other problems while trying to play the iPod? It might be that the hard drive is fried. You can try taking it in to an Apple store, and they should be able to either trouble shoot you, or replace it.

Restore software for ipod 16GB touch


i would be checking the usb lead before doing anything or even replacing it with a new one make sure iis securely connected
the cable near the iTunes symbol represents a problem with the cable
and the cd will not not be able to activate without a connection

Connect one end of the USB sync cable to one of your computer's unused USB ports, and connect the other end to the bottom of the iPhone or iPod Touch.


If iTunes does not start on its own, run it using the desktop or Start menu shortcut.

When iTunes starts, you should see an icon for the iPhone or iPod Touch on the left side of the window.


Click "Summary" in the right pane of the window if it is not already active.

Click the "Restore" button to begin the device restoration process.


ITunes displays a message asking if you want to save the contents of the device to your computer before restoring it.


If you have not backed up the device already, click the "Back Up" button.

If you have already done this, click "Don't Back Up."


Click "Restore." ITunes clears the data from your iPhone or iPod Touch and reinstalls the device's original firmware.

The screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch may shut off while iTunes works.


Do not remove the USB sync cable.

When iTunes is done restoring the device, it displays a message letting you know that the device is about to restart.


Click "OK" to restart the device. If you are restoring an iPhone or iPod touch, wait for the "iPhone / iPod touch is activated" message to appear on the screen of the device before you disconnect it from the computer.

You may now restore your backup of the device or remove it from the computer.


hope this helps

How to add music on an ipod that is syned with another computer


Syncing music manually

Select your iPod or iPhone in the Devices section on the left side of the iTunes window.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary tab.
Select the option to "Manually manage music and videos" or "Manually manage music." This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs.

Click Apply.
To manually add music, audiobooks, movies or TV shows, choose one of these categories under Library on the top-left of the iTunes window.

Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod or iPhone icon under Devices.

To add a playlist, select it from the left side of the iTunes window and drag it onto your device in the same way.

You have the option to sync all songs and playlists or selected playlists. Your iPod will need to have enough free space to sync the content that you have selected from your library. Tip: You can use the capacity bar at the bottom of the iPod settings window to determine how much free space is available. The size of a playlist can be determined by selecting it and looking at the bottom of the iTunes window.

Podcasts can also be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Podcasts tab and choose to sync all podcasts or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent, new, or unplayed

Need driver for ipod nano for windows millenium


Hi,
You will need to download the latest version of iTunes. It is free. When you have done that, load all of your music into iTunes. Then connect your iPod to the computer with the internet connected. You should be able to see your iPod on the left side of iTunes. You can then click the music tab to tell itunes what music to load into your iPod.

Be sure to click the arrow next to your iPod when the syncing is finished to release your iPod from itunes. Also click the green plug icon at the bottom right of your windows screen. If you cannot see the plug, click on the white arrow until you see the green plug. Click on it and you will see your ipod listed as a mass storage device and a message asking if you want to disconnect it. Click disconnect mass storage device and wait until you see a message saying ;safe to disconnect mass storage device. Done. Hope that helps.
