If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device

5) When it is complete, run the ipod updater and do a Restore. This puts the ipod software back onto it
6) Remove the ipod from the usb or firewire port, plug it into the wall power supply and allow it to finish the update
Vista says something along the lines of it can't find driver?
I had that happen with my new Targus wireless rechargable mouse.
Look in device manager, if it is listed as an UNKOWN DEVICE, you need to manually install driver as HID-compliant mouse.
Go to >Control Panel > System Select Device Manager from lefthand list.
There should be an "Unkown Device" in the list. To be sure, expand Mice and other pointing devices and see if your device is already there. Better yet, unplug mouse's receiver and the unkown device should go away.
Right click on the unknown device, and choose Update Driver Software... select Browse my computer for driver software then Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer then you need to find Human Interface Devices and subcategory HID-compliant mouse.
Vista tends to try and install these devices as USB mice when they should be HID.
Get a new cable if everything else works that is your problem Usually, unplugging, replugging it and then rebooting solves the problem.
your other options are a driver issue..either with the ipod drivers,
itunes, or the USB drivers for your computer itself. since your ipod
video and psp work fine, you can rule out USB drivers, but that doesn't
rule out additional driver problems.
the other option is there's some kind of failure with your ipod..and
sometimes if a device starts drawing power before doing any kind of
communication with the computer (like when my rockbox-hacked ipod goes
into charge only mode) then windows will assume there's a hardwire
issue. the best way to determine if it's an issue with your ipods are
take them to another computer and see if they work. if they work
fine...try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes (back up your music and
database) and see if that solves the problem. if none of that solves it
and you know the ipod shuffles are good..then your system has suffered
from the mysterious driver failure that's plagued a lot of systems. and
generally the only real solution is to reinstall windows from scratch.
