When i click the restore button into itunes, it


The shuffle has been plagued by this error code in the past and it used to mean death. Apple has put an update or "fix" for the error code.
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1238
or if that is not successful, you can do this.
Here is a fix that will work in almost 1418 cases. Low-level format the iPod using a low-level formatting tool. The default format command in XP will not cut it. You will find plenty of freeware and trialware tools on the net. Here is one: http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.04.12-HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool/
Just install the application and run it. Choose your iPod “drive” and let it do its thing. After the low-level format is complete, run iTunes and when it prompts you to restore the ipod, do the restore and your iPod is now good as new !! I hope this helps and good luck!

Ipod 5th generation


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.
