Error 1416 is very similar to 1418 (you might actually get the latter if you try it again). Try following the directions found here. Does the iPod have any other problems (syncing or anything else)? What changed since the last time you restored it (if you ever did)? Also, try disabling your internet security software.

Sounds like it is trying to restore from a bad back up.
If I remeber correctly, you can select which back up to choose from, when the ipod is plugged into itunes and it pops up, right click on it and there should be a option to select which back up to pick from.
If not, google for the firmware (something like ipod touch <model) firmware. be a pretty big file, Under 200mb.
Once downloaded, plug your ipod in on your pc, then clcik restore while holding the 'shift' key, then select this fimrware file you downloaded.
It should be really easy as it is only one file, once done, youll have fresh new ipod. You will loose all your songs/ pics that are currently on there so be warned!

Can't restore to default. receiveing iPod error


Resolution If you are experiencing these errors, begin by updating to the latest version of iTunes. When you have the current version of iTunes, try the following:
  • Disconnect and reconnect your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Restart your computer and then attempt to restore your iPod.
  • Disable or Enable Disk Use on your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and then attempt to restore.
  • Remove any third-party USB devices you have connected to your computer (it is not necessary to remove your keyboard or mouse).
  • If you use Windows, re-register .dll files as described in article iTunes displays -50 error message when syncing iPod on Windows XP
  • For Windows users, update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers.
Additional Information Note: If you have an iPod shuffle you may need to use the iPod Reset Utility to restore the iPod. If you are not sure which iPod you have, see Apple Support document Identifying iPod models.
If you are using an iPod touch, or iPhone please refer to this article.

ITunes wont recognize my iPod. Unknown error 1415.


what ipod is this exactly ( 1st generation, 2nd generation, 3rd generation etc ? )

Also when you say you have tried restore but it did not work , can you explain further as how you tried to restore it ?

If you hold down the top and bottom of the scroll wheel together for longer then 5 seconds does that allow you to restore it.

Also if this is a shuffle I think there is a restore utility on the apple website that should allow you to restore it.

Also check the apple forums in relation to the correct model ipod you have and there should be some other people who have probably had similar problems with a solution.

Also if you connect it to another computer is it the same with regards to restoring it or itunes detecting it also if you right click on my computer --> manage --> disk management

does it show up in there ?

also if you google the 1415 error it should come up with more specific info - post back if you require further help

My nano won't restore.


Take it into your nearest Apple Store or Best Buy. It's covered under warranty so it won't cost you. The hard drive needs to be tested on it.

Ipod hd problem


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 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

then plug in to your comp and use itunes to restore to factory settings Thats half of it, but...

These problems seem like you will need to go into disk mode,

Reset, then while the apple logo shows, hold play and centre, you will be in disk mode and should be able to use the HP format tool, then after a quick format, connect to iTunes to finish the process
