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?

I have just downloaded Itunes to a new computer and pluged the ipod in and it's telling I will lose songs. How do I keep all my songs and manage itunes on a new computer?

unfortunately apple does not allow this. there are applications that can be found on the internet that will rip your songs to a new computer. senuti is one however it is paid after 1000 songs. you can then wipe your ipod and re-sync your songs back to it

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.

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 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

Ilive ib7 ipod won't play

Hello, I had the same problem and I was about to return it to the store and finally figure it out...
The IPOD buttton wont work unless you really plug the IPOD in the craddle... I was thinking all the time that it was pluged, but it was not... You need to aligned it.. When you think is pluged look between the IPOD and the Boom box and you will have a better view... If you have the Classic IPOD like me, you will have to slide the plug on the boom box to the right... Try my friend....
