Have itunes up and ready ,next turn off your ipod now while holding the menu button and plug in the usb cord.keep holding the home button and a picture will pop up,it should look like a usb cord and a computer, now look on you computer screen and a little message should pop up saying itunes has detected an ipod or something like that.click on it and it will have some stuff about the ipod ,(you can let go of the home button now)but click restore.Last it will say if your sure becuse all your stuff will delete and go to the factory settings click ok them a whole bunch of stuff will pop up and will load so leave it for a bit but after all that turn it on and it should work.(PS:it is normal that the screen will go back before it restores itself.
If it is a usb, or a plug and play, by default windows xp recongizes any item plugged into the pc automatically. Best bet if you are not going to use it is to leave it plugged in all the time and just turn the screen off and the unit off when not needed.
YO!! Woah man dont keep plugging and unplugging.. your going to corrupt it! I had this problem in the past.. try reseting your ipod while its not plugged in, Hold the Menu and center button until the apple logo comes up than let them go. Now open Itunes and wait for it to open, than plug the ipod in your computer, make sure the USB Port is working good and everything. make sure its plugged in firmly. If you have done this, than it should work.
You can try this step by connecting your ipod to computer (If it is a desktop computer then connect it to rear USB port)
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
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.
SharePod should allow you to upload music from your iPod to your new computer even though your old computer no longer functions properly
If you have iTunes installed on your new computer, do NOT click yes when you plug it in and it asks if you want to format it. Formatting = BAD if you haven't backed up your iPod yet. To use the iPod with your new computer you will need to eventually format it, but not until you back up your stuff...
