Re: Fimware file on ipod

You will likely need to restore you iPod to its factory configuration. Dock the iPod (or plug in the cable) and let iTunes mount and sync the device. Once finished, there is an option in iTunes to Restore. Run this, follow the directions. After restoring, allow iTunes to re-sync your media to the device.

There are no words on the screen so I can't find the particular audio book or playlist I want to listen to

If the device is being powered on, has a full battery, but is still not responding, then it is likely that the device's firmware has gotten corrupt and you will nee to reflash the firmware.

You can download the update from the RCA help site here:

Be sure to back up any important media on the device in case the fimware install wipes out the media on the device.

My tge sigmatel hb500 mp4 player displayed a message saying that my internal drive needed formatting, so i updated the firmware, and now it will not display anything but a white screen

Firmware updates are fairly iffy for the hb500, and you should have formatted (deleted everything on) the player, not updated the firmware.
If you can, connect the player to a windows PC via usb, then go to my computer and right click on the mp3 player. select "quick format" which will delete everything, and hopefully the fimware update will either work or be deleted. This is a long shot, I really don't expect it to work...

The fimware may need to be upgraded or updated. You will either have to send it in to the company or replace

Ipod wont work

It seems that you just did a fimware update. It wants you to plug it into a wall charger. If you don't have one, you can just borrow one off your firend. After you plug it in, it will do its thing and in about 3 minuites your finished. It will not charge through USB/ FireWire. I have tried it many times and failed.

Apple Ipod Video 30gb wont update and restore and wont format using fat32

ok, well we need to perform the restore.

unplug the ipod. then plug it back in, make sure noting is useing your ipod, no windows into the ipod disk are open or any programs expt itunes is on. (close everything else you dont need expt itunes)

Then try to restore to a new version.

restore instructions

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.
How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of 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 on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. 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.
