Connect the ipod to the computer or power outlet, turn the hold switch on then off again, then press and hold both the MENU and the center button. The ipod will reset and the data will not be lost. if that doesnt work try this: try going to the device manager by right clicking on my computer then under the hardware tab. if you see an icon in the drop down list with a yellow exclimation mark beside it then thats why. right click on the icon click either uninstall or reinstall. if that doesnt work it might be the usb drives are not 2.0 combatible.. but that is highly unlikely. another solution might be to look in the windows driver archives and try to locate an ipod driver. if not the simplest solution might just be to use a diffrent usb port, and if you are using a usb hub try going straight to the computer instead of through the hub.
good luck

Your best bet would be to do a soft reset of the ipod:
  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 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.


If this does not work then you may have to re-format the ipod in itunes. If you click on the ipod in itunes you should see a RESTORE option on the main page.

I had my ipod connected to computer hearing music then i disconected it and know it wount turn on.help please


Plug it into a wall charger if you have one, or back onto the computer to see if it will charge, as it might be a low battery issue.

If not, press and hold Menu and select/center, until the ipod reboots/resets, and you see the apple menu. Then your ipod should be working.

If it still does not, press menu+select again to reset, but right as it shows the apple logo/when you hear the hard disk moving (if you have a video/classic/one with a hard disk) move your finger from menu to play, while keeping your finger on center. This will engage Disk mode, where you can plug it into your computer and format the disk.

This will erase all songs/data. once you have formatted (to FAT32) through My Computer (by right clicking your ipod, and clicking format) Open iTunes and 'restore' your ipod, which will reinstall the firmware/software. For formatting, you can do 'quick format' if you want, it doesn't matter.

Hope this helps!

"IPod Problem "


Hey, watch this tutorial and try the things it suggest.

Id highly recommend, restarting, and returning the device into the original state.

All this is covered in the video here:

http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/tutorials/troubleshooting.html
Also try the ipod updater from the apple site.

If that doesnt help contact the apple support.

boogie31 - Go to Windows --> Control Panel --> Printers and Other Hardware (I am assuming you are using Windows XP) --> System --> Hardware Tab --> Device Manager - see if any devices under Universal Serial Bus Controllers have a yellow exclamation mark by them. If so, then double click the device and select the "Drivers" tab in the next window. Then click on Update Drivers.

nikes - Use your transfer program (Windows Media Player, Media Monkey, etc) to select the Properties or Advanced Tag Editor option - then you will be able to change the language. Give me your program name, and I can get more specific.
