IT NOT RESPONDING TO THE I TUNES


Try resetting Ipod first:

Reset an iPod:

picexporterror Toggle the Hold switch to on, then back to off (none of the red is showing).

picexporterror Press and hold down the Menu and Select buttons (as shown in the picture) for 6-10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.


picexporterror For many problems, you may have to do this several times. The iPod may be hung up on several things so you have to tell it: "Reset that. Now reset this. Yes, reset that too" and etc.




Restore an iPod:

Warning: When you restore and iPod, you...

... delete everything on it (songs, pictures, movies, files, games, firmware, etc.) Hey! That means any stuff that's on the iPod, but not in the iTunes library, will be lost. After deleting everything, iTunes reloads the iPod software with a fresh copy (referred to as "factory settings").

Using iTunes

When the iPod is connected, select it in the Source list in iTunes. Under the Summary tab, there is a button named "Restore." Click it. Select the restore option you want then sit back. A progress bar will show you the status of the restore. When it's done, you'll see a message like "Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore." Now the iPod will show a progress bar. Do not disconnect during this part. When it's done, the iTunes Setup Assistant will prompt you to name and configure the iPod.

If that Put ipod in disk mode by toggle hold switch off then on and when apple logo appers hold action(middle button)and bottom button until a tick appers.Then connect to itunes.

IPOD Classic 80G apple icon then red x icon or restore in itunes


I know you tried to fix it, but trying multiple times may work.

The message "go to www.apple.com/support/ipod" usually is preceded by, or followed by, the Apple logo or the sad face icon. It directs you to the Apple support site because either the iPod software is corrupted or their is a hardware problem. You should try to reset the iPod (try several times). If that doesn't right the iPod, then try to restore it (which will erase the entire iPod and reload the software.

Follow the links above and see if that gets your iPod working. You might want to see if you can update the iPod/iTunes software or try this troubleshooting guide. If it is really a hardware problem then your iPod needs to be taken in for service.

Froozen and wont do ANYTHING


  1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
  3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
  4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
  5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
  6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
    • While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
    • If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.
    • utting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode
      1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
      2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
      3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
      4. 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.ht1363_2.jpg
      5. 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.

Hello I have my problem is that my jailbroken ipodtouch(2nd genertation) will not play music.It wont play sound the songs play but the sound you cant hear.Can any one help me?


Did the songs you're trying to play work previously/is it all music on the ipod? I believe if you plug the ipod into your computer and hit the restore button in iTunes it wipes everything and resets the factory settings. Seeing as jailbreaking it technically voids the warranty, there's no "official" way of fixing it - but this has worked for me in the past. It could also be a problem with your headphones or the headphone jack. Before wiping it, I'd test it with some different headphones to see if that solves your problem. You can also try a reset on the iPod itself by pressing the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. This doesn't erase anything, but it does reset the device. Since there are so many things it could be, you may want to try the less severe ones first, then back up your music and the like before doing the iTunes factory reset - then bring it in to Apple to let them know that you can't play music.

Ipod wont play musik :S


Sounds like you need to restore it in iTunes and reload it. It sounds to me like the data is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
Connect it to the computer and open iTunes. See if it lists the songs. If it does you may be able to fix the database by clicking on the first track and then pressing shift and clicking on the last track. That will select all of the songs. Then right click on the list and select either check selected or uncheck selected. It may rebuild the database and fix the problem. If it doesn't, reconnect it and when it shows up in the list on the left, left click on the iPod once and the info screen will come up. That will tell you what version on firmware you are running and so on. Under that there are 2 buttons. Update and Restore. Select restore and then reload it. That restores it back to factory but it will wipe all the data. One of those solutions should fix it.

Cheers and best wishes

My ipod suddenly wont mount!


The first thing you can try is unplug the Ipod from the computer. Hold down the center button while pressing down on the menu button. You should see an Apple logo appear on the screen. Your Ipod has been reset. Plug it back into ITunes.

If that doesn't work after plugging it in. You may have to restore the software in your IPod from Itunes. Make sure your songs in your IPod are on your hard drive because this will restore all of the settings back to default and empty out the memory of the IPod as well.

This system restore can be done through ITunes or by selecting the system software option from the IPod menu in the computer if you have it installed.

Option 1 should work.
