Corrupt firmware ipod video 60 GB

I get a message that there is a new version of software available for my ipod but when I try to upgrade it says my ipod firmware file is corrupt.
I deleted the software updater folder from my OSX software but still get the same error message - I just want to restore the ipod the factory settings.  I don't care if the music is lost.

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.

How can I install podcast apps ? how i can upgrade in version 7.1 ?


On your iPod, tap on the Settings icon. Next tap on the 'General' and then on 'Software Update'. If a software update is available for your iPod it will be listed there. Proceed to install the update. If no software update such as 7.1 or higher is available, probably the podcast app you are trying to download is available only for iPhone and/or iPad. The latest iOS version for those is 8.1.2.

Reprogram ipod


Plug your iPod to your computer and open iTunes, if iTunes doesn't open automatically.

If there is a new version of the firmware for your iPod, then iTunes gives you a pop-up message saying so.


Click "Update" if there is a newer version of the iPod firmware available to download.

If there is no new firmware, or you want to downgrade the firmware, then skip this step.


Download the iPod firmware you want to reprogram you iPod with from the Internet.

Websites such as Modifymyi, iClarified and Felixbruns (see Resources at bottom).


Right-click on the "Restore" button in iTunes and select the firmware for the iPod that you downloaded.

ITunes then backs up the music in your iPod, reprograms the iPod with the new firmware and then restores your iPod.

I have an ipod classic 160 gig but keep gettin the error code 1439 wen i try to restore what should i do?


Hi, now, when you restored your 80 gB classic, did you upgrade the firmware to 1.1.2?
If so, do not.
I refuse as my firmware 1.1.1 works the ipod great and the only trouble started (twice) on trying to update the firmware.
Try a hard factory reset:support.apple.com/kb/HT1339

Then, charge fully with AC charger (this was recommended to me twice in an Apple store)

After wards, use USB to connect to your computer and do not allow it to upgrade to 1.1.2

(See incidental article about ipod touch: rupertgee.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/downgraderestore-ipod-touch-firmware-to-version-111-using-os-x/ this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates: apple.com/support/downloads/

This seemed to work for me:

1. Download latest version of iTunes
2. disconnect from internet (I did this by removing my wireless adapter).
3. Put iPod into disk mode (hold select and play until display says "disk mode" at the top).
4. Connect iPod to computer
5. You should be prompted to restore, click yes.
6. Message will appear saying can't connect to internet, do you want to restore to latest version "2.0.1" instead? (Something along those lines).
7. It should start restoring and work this time.

Hope this helps.

I have an early Ipod classic 60 gb that won't workwith my Alpine


Try looking in you itunes folder for a previous version of the software for your ipod if it worked before. The old copies are saved, unless you deleted those folders also. If you deleted them try searching the web for the old software.

I have an older 30 gb video ipod and that worked jus fine but when i pluged in a newer ipod nano it doesnt connect and it does with a brand new 16 gb ipod touch. is there anyway to fix this problem?


When you synced to a newer version of iTunes, everything was fine, until you connected the nano and
the touch, which worked fine, and then you tried the 30 GB again and it would not work, right?

Upgrade the software in the 30GB, not with your original 30GB disks, but with newer disks supplied NOW
by Apple, since iTunes went to version 8.1.1 and everything should be back in sync.

49 2f81- error


From the service manual:

A critical firmware error has occurred. This type of error can be caused by invalid print commands, corrupt data, or invalid
operations. In some instances, electrical noise in the cable can corrupt data during transmission to the MFP. Other causes include poor quality parallel cables, poor connections, or specific software programs.

To fix:

1 Turn the MFP off, and then turn the
MFP on.
2 Upgrade the firmware.
3 Try printing a job from a different software program. If the job prints, go back to the first program and try printing a different file. If the message appears only with a certain software program or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.
4 If the message persists when using different software programs and attempting specific print jobs, disconnect all of the cables that
connect the MFP to the network or a computer.
5 Turn the MFP off.
6 Remove all DIMMs and flash-memory cards. Do not remove the firmware memory card that is in slot 1.
7 Remove all of the EIO devices.
8 Turn the MFP on.
9 If the error message disappears, reinstall each DIMM, flash-memory card, and EIO device individually, making sure to turn the MFP power off and then on again as you install each device.
10 Replace the component that caused the error message.
11 If the error persists, replace the formatter.

To upgrade firmware:

The MFP has remote firmware update (RFU) capability. Use the information in this section to upgrade the MFP firmware. The overall process involves the following steps:
1 Determine the current level of firmware that is installed on the MFP.
2 Go to the HP Web site and find out whether a firmware update is available. If an update is available, download the latest firmware to your computer.
3 Transfer the new firmware from your computer to the MFP.

Determining the current level of firmware

To determine the current level of firmware, view the configuration information on the MFP control panel. To view the configuration information, follow these instructions.
1 Press MENU.
2 Touch INFORMATION.
3 Touch PRINT CONFIGURATION. The configuration page prints.
4 The firmware datecode is listed in the section called Device Information. The firmware datecode has this format: YYYYMMDD XX.XXX.X. The first string of numbers is the date, where YYYY represents the year, MM represents the month, and DD represents the date. For example, a firmware datecode of that begins with 20040225 represents February 25, 2004.

Downloading the new firmware from the HP Web site

To find the most recent firmware upgrade for the MFP, go to www.hp.com/go/lj4345mfp_software. This page provides instructions for downloading the new firmware version.

Transferring the new firmware to the MFP

This procedure requires that you install HP Web Jetadmin Version 7.0 or later on the computer. See Using HP Web Jetadmin software. Complete the following steps to update a single device through HP Web Jetadmin after downloading the .RFU file from the HP Web site.
1 Start HP Web Jetadmin.
2 Open the Device Management folder in the drop-down list in the Navigation panel. Navigate to the Device Lists folder.
3 Expand the Device Lists folder and select All Devices. Locate the MFP in the list of devices, and then click to select it.
If you need to upgrade the firmware for multiple HP LaserJet 4345mfps, select all of them by pressing the Ctrl key as you click the name of each MFP.
4 Locate the drop-down box for Device Tools in the upper-right corner of the window. Select Update Printer Firmware from the action list.
5 If the name of the .RFU file is not listed in the All Available images box, click Browse in the Upload New Firmware Image dialog box and navigate to the location of the .RFU file that you
downloaded from the Web at the start of this procedure. If the filename is listed, select it.
6 Click Upload to move the .RFU file from your hard drive to the HP Web Jetadmin server. After the upload is complete, the browser window refreshes.
7 Select the .RFU file from the Printer Firmware Update drop-down menu.
8 Click Update Firmware. HP Web Jetadmin sends the selected .RFU file to the MFP. The control panel shows messages that indicate the progress of the upgrade. At the end of the upgrade
process, the control panel shows the Ready message.

Using HP Web Jetadmin software

HP Web Jetadmin is a Web-based software solution for remotely installing, monitoring, and troubleshooting network-connected peripherals. The intuitive browser interface simplifies crossplatform
management of a wide range of devices, including HP and non-HP printers. Management is proactive, allowing network administrators the ability to resolve printer issues before users are affected. Download this free, enhanced-management software at www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin_software.
To obtain plug-ins to HP Web Jetadmin, click plug-ins, and then click the download link that is next to the name of the plug-in that you want. The HP Web Jetadmin software can automatically notify
you when new plug-ins are available. On the Product Update page, follow the directions to automatically connect to the HP Web site.
If installed on a host server, HP Web Jetadmin is available to any client through a supported Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 for Windows or Netscape Navigator 7.1 for Linux. Browse to the HP Web Jetadmin host.

Replacing the formatter

1 Slide the formatter cover toward the left side of the MFP and remove it.

Cant transfer music


Greetings from Ireland. I never had problems before, but i sent my MP3 player to sony for repair and when I received it it had the same issue.

The reason for this is that on the player there is some 5Mb of data that is generated by the firmware of the player. The firmware is like a bios of the device. If the firmware is not compatible with the software you're trying to transfer the music with, you will get this message.

Firstly, check if you have the latest version og Sonic Stage of Open Manager (depending where relevant). This should fix the issue. If it doesn't, you may need a firmware upgrade. The upgrade is easy to download and instal and is available directly from Sony.

Warning: Only install firmware and software updates provided by Sonly directly. Specially with firmware, wrong package can damage your player so be sure that the file you're downloading and installing is the right one.

Visit Sony Support page to download files.
