Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Computer does not recognise.could not reset.Is not locked.Plugged into 240volts, still no change.
Ipods can be compared to small computers that thankfully do not run on a windows operating system. They still tend to spit out an occasional error once in a while. Most of the time it either freezes, is stuck in disk mode or displays other errors that are not that common. (like icons that should not be there).
Most of the time a simple reboot while do the trick. Apple unfortunately decided not to include an on/off switch which means this has to be done by pressing a combination of buttons on the Ipod. If a relatively new Ipod froze up or displays an error do the following:
If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
If the above steps don't solve the problem I would need to collect some more information such as What operating system are you running?What version of windows media player are you running?I would recommend you you to use the charger the device... Assuming that you are running windows xp and WMP11- first we will need to make sure that the device is recognize under device manager...to get to device manager click on your start menu and right click on my computer..then click on properties...you should have your systems properties open...then click under hardware and click on device manager..your device should be showing under portable device...if the device is showing under disk drive right click on it and then uninstall it...then unplug the device and plug it on a usb port that is locate on the back of the computer...then reinstall it and use itunes to upgrade the firmware on the device..let me know the outcome...

In Windows, some background processes can cause issues for other programs and processes. These conflicts can prevent applications such as iTunes and QuickTime Player from working correctly, opening, or even installing. You might be able to resolve these conflicts by disabling some items using the System Configuration Utility (MSCONFIG) in Windows XP. This utility is not included with Windows 2000.
Important: Disabling third-party System Services and Startup Items can prevent some software or OEM hardware on your computer from working correctly. For example, this can affect the CD/DVD control buttons on portable computers or prevent wireless keyboards and mice from functioning. If you are already using the Selective Startup option in Windows (see step 4 below), you will need to keep track of which items you disable and re-enable so after performing this troubleshooting, you can get your computer back to the way it was. Selecting Normal Startup may enable items that you were not using, and could cause issues.
Note: If you are troubleshooting an iPhone related issue, select the "Apple Mobile Device Support" checkbox.
