Ok i have 2 problems with my ipod, the first one is actually due to the fact that itunes will not work on my pc at all... i installed it a while ago and it worked after some minor changes were made. I basically found an older version (something like... version 5.0.1 or something) and it didn't work, so i changed the compatibility of the program to be compatible with windows 2000 (by the way i use windows XP i just used the little utility thing that comes up in the properties menu when you right click the itunes icon on the desktop) and then all of a sudden it worked, then i installed the new itunes over it, and it was fine... now... 3 months on, i have purchased a new HDD and installed windows again (yay) and now this process will not work at all... i am befuddled why it does not work, i used the same method as before and it still won't do anything, please help me with this issue... as dBpower AMP music converter only works SOME of the time... my other issues has to do mainly (and hopefully) with this program... i have transfered music to my ipod with this program pretty well since i had it, but for some reason with 1 particular set of files i recently acquired... it will not sync them at all... i try to sync them 1 by 1 and it does nothing... it says that the files are on the ipod, but when i select the artist and then album on my ipod (when it is NOT attached to the pc) the songs are not there... yet the dBpower AMP music converter seems to think they are.. what is going on here ? please help me with both issues ASAP as these songs are used to wake me up for work in the morning on my pc... and im quite sick of leaving my pc on all night... ^_^ lol.
when i plug in my ipod itunes does not pop up and when cliking the icon on desk top itunes does not run.

You need to connect it to the computer with itunes that you usually connect it to or sync it with. This is because your friend has locked your iphone in case it was stolen. However, by syncing it back with its normal itunes computer, it will realise it hasn't in fact been stolen and should all work again normally.

You should have actually not removed your iPod without giving "safely remove hardware" ..that is the problem your PC is not able to detect it..try formatting your iPod using someother computer and then try ...that should do the trick..
this is what i just did with my daugthers ipod, that did not charge nor read hers either, turn on ipod if not still on (kill the battery totally)....later on tonight or when its dead...power up the pc / laptop, bring up itunes then connect the ipod to pc (two things should happen 1 - do not disconnect shoud pop on ipod screen and 2 - the ipod icon should pop on itunes) when updating itunes make sure ipod is not connected.
Mac: go to applications then utilities then open disk utility on the on the left side all the hard drives will be listed. click on your ipod then click erase, look here click "erase" and then "ok". when it is done disconnect the ipod, open itunes and reconnect the ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is corrupted and i needs to restore it. click ok and then wait for it to complete the restore.
PC: go to start, my computer. in the new window your ipod's name will apear right click then click format. make sure that quic format is checked and then click "ok". when it is done disconnect the ipod, open itunes and reconnect the
ipod. itunes will tell you the ipod is corrupted and i needs to restore
it. click ok and then wait for it to complete the restore.
note: this might no work but will help in most cases, you hard drive may have just fail and then your out of luck
