Hi.. if you have itunes, run the program, connect the ipod to it and then see what it does.. i would suggest just using the restore option in itunes so it can reset your ipod.. u can only do this on itunes but i've also found that realplayer will work with itunes as well so hopefully one of those two programs will work for you.. itunes is a little glitchy with windows vista so keep that in mind if you are running a vista os.. you can also go to your start button, click and open the MY COMPUTER option and then see if you can see see your ipod plugged in--that is another way if you don't see a prompt pop up after you plug it in...

let me know if this helps, if not, i can still do more troubleshooting.. be sure you have enough memory if you haven't installed itunes yet.. good luck.. d

    be sure you have the updated version of itunes installed before anything else.. i'm updating as i type so give me a minute and i will see if i can access itunes info.. i've been having a little vista vs. itunes issue so i apologize for any delays.. thanks, d

  • donna mcgill Feb 26, 2008

    just to be sure, do you have the hold button/slide with the red showing or not? be sure that's not showing or it won't turn on at all.. just wanted to be clear on that..



    can you try right clicking on that icon? does it look like a critical icon sign?

With the phone UN-PLUGED and powered OFF. Hold the home button and plug into a computer using I-tunes. Continue to hold till the restore screen starts on the computer. You will restore the device to factory and loose everything but it will be useable.

I clicked right on the mouse and formatted the i pod suffle 2 GB .since then it is not working.what should i do?


lets say you at least copied the software from the ipod...(well if you did not... you wiped it clean by formatting).. okay do you have a friend, family member or next door neighbor that has the same Ipod (that you can copy the software only)...


how to copy software
1 connect ipod to pc... Itunes will load up (x it out, close it)
2 go to my computer see the device click on it... copy the software and hidden also (you will not see any media files)
3 paste all the software to temp file on the pc
4 disconnect the borrowed IPOD, and connect your IPOD
5 copy all software from temp file and paste to IPOD
6 disconnect, close out my computer, plug back in, give it a 1 or 2 mins (if Itunes do not open, then open manually and see the new ipod)

please note you must have the latest Itunes version

Ipod touch wont turn on unless pluged into computer


Itmaybe a battery problem...if you think its not a battery problem,you may want to try a software upgrade/restore...if your software version is already the latest one,backup all the ipod contents before you restore...you will find the restore option in the summary tab in itunes.

I'm having trouble charging my ipod shuffle. When I pluge it in it doesn't charge. I don't see the light indicating that it's being charged.


  1. borrow a friends cable
  2. Try moving the cable around, you might have damaged the cable
  3. make sure there is nothing in the ipod connection, a bit of dust could make it so there is no connection

your going to have to wipe this ipod and start over again as if it got corupted you need to hold in the power followed by the home button for 10 secound then let it go this will wipe your ipod into factory setting.

I have the iPod software loaded on my computer. It works fine. My question is if I delete something from the "library", why is it not removed from my iPod? How do I get it off my iPod?


ok this is easy. :)
when you plug your ipod into your computer it will ask you if you want to "tranfer purchases" say no.
and if that still doesnt work, try not just deleteing it, but un-checking the item, pluging in the ipod, then deleting it.
hope i helped :)
