Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

IPod not working at all...

I have an 80G iPod and recently I went to turn it on and it said connect to iTunes to restore. When I connected it to iTunes I pressed restore. It started to restore my iPod but then it said there was an error and your iPod could not be restored. I have tried everything that I can think of and what some of my friends think, but nothing has worked. What do you suggest?

Thanks for the Post red_mo ,

Sounds like you have a Corrupted Hard Drive that will not restore. Where to you get your Music from? This is extremely important. Only use iTUNES or CDS and thats it. You need a New Hard Drive replacement which we can do this for you.

Restore the iPod using iTunes. If that doesn't work, if it is less than a year old you may take it back and Apple will give you a new one free of charge unless you did something to it like you dropped it or it got in the water.

It is locked up


Maybe i shud start by explaining why most Ipods freeze or crash. When you unplug you ipod improperly this may and usually causes the itunes software to crush and stop functioning. The softwares corrupts and cant function. So you probably cant enjoy ua music.
With the viruses in your computer its easily to infect your ipod since ipod is a mass storage device also. Some viruses have a way of freezing the itunes software.

When it comes to restoring your ipod you need a computer that is not infected with viruses. you need to format your ipod if it cant be restored directly from the internet. After the ipod is completely formated which means you have done away with the viruses/all the songs you can restore it with itunes.

But there is also a way of recovering songs from your ipod before formating or restoring since if you format you get to loose all ua files without recovering them.

But the biggest problem is when your ipod is not even recognized by your computer. But if your computer can recognize your ipod as a mass storage even if its not syncing your music, there is a possibility restore it to normacy. The only rist is loosing all your data, but with an expert you dont have to loose anything.

IPod won't sync with existing iTunes


Hi,
Just connect it to your computer and sync it with your iTunes library. If that doesn't work, try 'restoring' the iPod and reloading your music from your library. Hope that helps.

8GB iPod Touch Disabled


Thanks to everyone who provided solution inputs. I finally have my iPod back. The solution is: 1. Turn of your iPod. 2. While holding down the 'Home' button, connect to iTunes WARNING: Doing this will return your iPod back to original 'out of the box' settings and you will lose everything. On the bright side, you get a 'fresh' start and it will auto update to the most recent software version. Good luck!
