You'll need to format your iPod.

There is 2 way's i know of you do this first one is to go to iTunes when your iPod is plugged in, now click on your iPod then click on "Restore" this will restore it to previours setting also should restore the corrupted it spoke of when you tryed turning it on.

If you've tryed formatting it through iTunes but was unsuccessful, try through my computer. Follow these steps below:

First click on "Start" - now click on "My Computer", now look for your iPod usually named "Removable Disk", once you've found it, right-click on it then click "Format", once format is complete, unplug your iPod then try it now.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful. Further problems leave a comment on here and i'll get back to you.

Take off lock code from itunes


Hi babyfoxyred
If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data.

I reset my ipod touch but the screen appear with itunes icon and usb connector


Hello,

The OS (operating system) of your ipod is corrupt for one reason or the other. The ipod won't boot or start because the start-up file or necessary files needed to boot up the ipod are corrupt.

The solution to the problem is to re-installing the OS (operating system) of the ipod by restoring the ipod. To achieve this, you will be needs a USB cord for your ipod model and i-tunes installed on your computer. Once you have i-tunes installed on your computer and a USB cord, then the job will be done and your ipod will be back to normal again.

If you don't have i-tunes installed on your computer, go to www.apple.com
Click on i-tunes and download i-tunes for free, then install it on your computer. After installing and downloading i-tunes, follow the below steps:

Run the i-tune program on your computer
Connect the USB to your I-pod
Connect the other end to your computer
Wait a while for the computer to recognize and install the ipod, then read and follow instructions on the i-tune. It will ask you to restore your ipod.
But if the i-tunes doesn't recognize the ipod via your PC, press and hold the Power button and the home button for 5 to 10 seconds. Leave the power button and keep pressing the home button or vice-ver-sa till the restore option comes up.
Click on restore and follow instructions thereafter.

After the whole restore process, your i-pod will be back to normal again.

Note: Make sure you back up your ipod if the files on it are very important to you. Start by syncing your iPod with your computer. When you do this, the iPod management screen will appear. Midway down that screen there's a button that reads "Restore."

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Good luck.

I connected my ipod to the laptop which then carried out the sync, IT then popped up saying i had an update due 5.2 now which i carried out, after the system shut down and restarted,every time i connect...


Hello.

Sounds like the update was corrupted or had corrupted files.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date.

Hope this resolves your problem.

Apple iPod is Locked

There is only one way - and it will erase all your songs (applies to most models, not just Nano):

If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more information.
If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new combination.
Updating and Restoring iPod Software
You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
- If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
- If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
the iPod update.
3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
installed the software from the iPod CD.

Corrupt firmware ipod video 60 GB


How to restore iPod
  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. 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).
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
