Maybe i shud start by explaining why most Ipods freeze or crash. When you unplug you ipod improperly this may and usually causes the itunes software to crush and stop functioning. The softwares corrupts and cant function. So you probably cant enjoy ua music. With the viruses in your computer its easily to infect your ipod since ipod is a mass storage device also. Some viruses have a way of freezing the itunes software.
When it comes to restoring your ipod you need a computer that is not infected with viruses. you need to format your ipod if it cant be restored directly from the internet. After the ipod is completely formated which means you have done away with the viruses/all the songs you can restore it with itunes.
But there is also a way of recovering songs from your ipod before formating or restoring since if you format you get to loose all ua files without recovering them.
But the biggest problem is when your ipod is not even recognized by your computer. But if your computer can recognize your ipod as a mass storage even if its not syncing your music, there is a possibility restore it to normacy. The only rist is loosing all your data, but with an expert you dont have to loose anything.

If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the
device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced
with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your
data will not be present

Use the computer that you originally used, and open up itunes this

a computer that was not used to sync it you will be able to unlock it
but the ipod will be wiped.
1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer. 2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal. 3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

back them up first.if you want instructions on how to format email me

I thnk u shud restore your ipod to factory setting using itunes. Several reason may have caused your itunes to crash.Maybe u disconnected your ipod before it has completed to sync your music and or your ipod might be affected with a virus. you better restore it to avoid further disapointments. I have an ipod i have experienced such problems. The only risk is you are going to loose the current songs in your ipod
its simple just keep ur ipod in off mode n connect to the computer..nw go 2 my computer n open the ipod 4m there n copy all the songs on ur hdd...now sync n get those songs again 4m ur hdd ...(bt remember that when u connect the ipod to ur computer do not enter itunes...do it only after copyin the songs
The great thing about unlocking iPods is that it is very easy, and almost never wipes out the data.
To unlock the iPod, simply plug it into a computer with iTunes. The iPod should unlock, or at least display the "Do not disconnect" screen. It will not automatically sync with a foreign (other computer than it was originally synced with) computer without first asking you, and if you click no, the iPod should be unlocked.
If this does not solve the problem, notify me and I will try to find a different method of unlocking the iPod.
