You can hold down the power button and home button at the same time for over five seconds. The iPod should reset itself.

SOURCE: Ipod shows its charging when not plugged in - always on

I have the same problem, in where it thinks its always charging and iTunes wont pick the iPod up, but it will play and take a charge from a mains charger. I dont get the 'Do not disconnect' screen though.

.BUT I can get around it although the problem does come back.

This works for me 1st time OR after a few attempts - -

Connect you Ipod to your computer (iTunes shouldn't pick it up if your having the same problem as me, as it thinks its still connected previously)
Now try resetting the iPod whilst still connected (holding the middle + centre button)
Now if you get the 'USB connection sound' let your computer and iTunes pick it up.
Once recognised, use the "Safely Remove Hardware" option via windows (dont eject with iTunes).
Then try using the mains power charger to give it quick charge, you should then be able to unplug the charger to see if the loss in connection has been recognised and u lose the charging lightening flash icon.
You should then get away with charging or using iTunes a few times without the problem re-occuring.

This does work, but not a permanent fix as I still have the problem.

Question - Does using the restore option work? As I refuse to wipe my music and carefully perfected playlists.

SOURCE: ipod not recognized by computer or itunes

I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)

SOURCE: 16 gig ipod nano screen has frozen screen

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

How do I register my iPod without a credit card number


<p>Music to an iPod, you must use iTunes. And for applications and music in iTunes, you must register with Apple, which usually requires a credit card. If you do not have a credit card, you cannot buy anything from the iTunes Store. However, there is a way around this and to register on iTunes without using a credit card. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open iTunes. Click on "iTunes Store", then "app store." <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click on an application available on the right side. If you do not want to buy an application, select one free. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click "Get App" and then "Create Account". <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click "Continue", enter your e-mail address and password to use. Enter your birthday. This, along with your question and secret answer will be used to reset your password if you forget it. Click "Continue". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click "None" button on the "Payment Method" screen. Give the rest of the information necessary, click Continue. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Check your email for a message from iTunes. Open the message and click the link to your iTunes account to activate. You will now be recorded and will be able to download free applications, without giving credit card details. <br />

When I plug my ipod into my computer, it doesn't show up anywhere. Neither in "My Computer" or itunes. I'm running Windows XP Professional. I've tried resetting and forcing it to disk mode, reinstalling...

Maybe you should try this third ipod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer:

Key-features:
1. Sync videos/songs from computer to iPod without iTunes ;
2. Backup videos/songs off iPod to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

I always use it to sync my iPod when my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, it's easy to use and works pretty well.

Hi i have locked my ipod and i dont know the code . i dont want to lose everything on it . i dont have itunes on my new computer yet how do i unblock it without lose everything on it and without the...


If you have purchased the apps and music on it, you wont lose them. Open itunes, disable automatic syncing. Connect your ipod and go to file --> Transfer purchases from ipod. Also, on the left side of itunes, there is a header that says store. Under that there is a selection that says purchased. Anything you've purchased through itunes will be in there. Then just reset up your library with music on your computer. Finally, when you highlight your device, there is an option to reset to factory settings. Do that and it should remove the code. When that is finished, sync it and all should be good.

My itunes doesnt work


try connecting to another computer that has itunes. this sounds like it wont solve anything but for some reason i get errors sometimes and as soon as i connect to another computer and then connect to the original i dont get errors from the original computer i was trying to use.

if that doesnt work, hold the power and home button untill your ipod shuts off then turn it back on. this sometimes helps as a sort of reset for your ipod without losing any of your music or etc.
hope this helped!
