You'll need to reset and then resync the device. To do a reset you turn the lock on and then off and hold down the center select and menu buttons, at the same time, for five seconds until you see the Apple logo appear. Then, plug the unit into your computer and sync. In iTunes you'll want to choose to restore the unit. That will erase and then restore your syncronized data, as well as update the firmware.

    Oh, I should note, this happens when you remove the unit while it is still syncronizing and "disk mode" has been enabled. To prevent it from happening again, make sure to open Windows Hardware Manager (it's the little green arrow that says "Safely Remove Hardware" in the System Tray next to your clock) and stop the device before unplugging the cable.

Ipod touch 3g has a white screen - any way to bring it back up?


Hi mickhon...
White Screen of Death

This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
3.You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following
the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that
is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot
anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode.
If at this point you still have the white screen,
restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory
settings).
Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done.
After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

120GB classic ipod is corrupt


You will want to attempt to force the iPod into disc mode then restore using iTunes. With the iPod in disc mode, iTunes should show the iPod. You will have to restore the iPod to resolve the issue of corruption though. Please let me know if this does not resolve your issue. :)
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" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

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.

Reboot your ipod in Disk Mode then try itunes again. Also make sure your itunes is setup so it boots up when it sees it. (that way you know it sees the device)

As far as seeing it "usb mass storage" that is a good sign. You maybe able to recover items with a good friend called LINUX which is compatable with apple software.

Disk Mode:
Hold the select and menu button and once the device turns off hold the select and play button and hold it until it says Disk Mode.

Once booted in Disk Mode try to connect via usb.
