To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: Ipod quickformat and does not work - ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg ipodnanIpod quickformat and does not work - ipodphoto.gif= ipodnano.jpg ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif

  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  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 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Please formate the player with your pc


Hi anisnakum
You mentioned you had an Ipod, so use this solution for your problem
*******************************************************************************
Since iPods are basically big hard drives with special software and a screen, the hard drive in your iPod needs to be formatted.
Formatting is essentially the process of prepping the drive to talk to the computer it connects to.
Luckily, you usually don't have to worry about formatting your iPod.
Formatting happens automatically when you first set up your iPod.
If you use your iPod with a Mac, during this process it becomes Mac formatted. Be sure you have Itunes download to your computer
If you use it with Windows, it gets Windows formatting.
If your using a Mac then it will Mac format.

My ipod wont restore


This is what I did and it worked like a charm:
1. Connect your iPod Classic to your computer USB (I used Windows 7)
2. When it is identified as an external drive, click My Computer to show the devices.
3. Right Click the iPod Drive and click format,
4. Leave the default settings except uncheck the Quick Format box.
5. Start formatting. It takes some time but the blue bar should be moving until format is complete.
6. Run iTunes if it is not already running. Restore the iPod.
It will restore flawlessly.

How to reformat my ipod using itunes?


How to Reformat iPod In order to reformat iPod to work on both Mac and PC, connect your iPod to a Windows computer. Then follow the steps in the how to restore your iPod article. This will reset your iPod and format it for Windows.
Now, resync your iPod with the computer that contains your iTunes library. ITunes will ask you if you want to erase and sync the iPod. If you say yes, this will redownload your iTunes library to the iPod.
At this point, you may also need a way to easily move your iTunes library to the second computer. A quick way to do this is with software that copies the contents of your iPod to a computer. Learn more about iPod copy and backup software here.
Checking iPod Format Each time you sync your iPod, you can check what format it is. In the iPod management screen in iTunes, there’s some data at the top of the window next to the image of your iPod. One of those items is “Format,” which tells you how your iPod is formatted.

My ipod shuffle wont play music


It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

The songs could be in the wrong format
AAC is iTunes native format
Mp3 generally works
WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
Streaming songs won't work

Because your problem was published a while ago it may be now fixed but if not read this below.

Have you tryed installing iTunes and running updates?

Well if you've already tryed that try using this software to update it http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodupdater20060110.html

Updating it may remove this error.

If none of them work the next solution is to Format it. To format it not using the software go to "Start" - "My Computer" - look for something called "Removable Disk" click on it just to see if it's actually the iPod then once you've checked right click on it and click on "Format".

If you want to do is using iTunes just plug your iPod in then information will come up on iTunes about your iPod it will give you 2 options update or restore now click "Restore".

Restoring will restore it to it's previours settings and "REMOVE ALL MUSIC AND DATA ON YOUR IPOD".

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
