Try resetting the iPod, this usually works.

As follows:

How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including:iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation)iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation)

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)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)Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)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 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.

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.

Hope this helps

My iPod Touch has an unresponsive touch screen.


Try restoring it. Instructions are in the restore section of your iPod. If you restore it, don't update the iPod, because it seems that the update made your iPod unresponsive. It should be fine then. Good Luck!

Cannot pull up the library on my laptop. Ipod


First thing you might want to do is verify that the songs are actually deleted from your laptop. In iTundes, under the "Edit" pulldown menu, select "Preferences". In the Preferences window, select the "Advanced" tab. Note the "iTunes Media folder location", then run Windows Explorer, go to that folder, and see if your music is under that folder.

If not, there are various tools on the Web that can copy your music from your iPod back to your laptop. Google the words "copy music from ipod".

Problems!


What I would do is try downloading the newest version of Itunes. That should work or you can try and restoring it. If you want to try that route here is how t do it:

  1. Open iTunes on your computer.
  2. Connect your iPod to the computer using the USB cable.
  3. When the device appears in iTunes, select the "Restore" button. You will have four options from which to choose. Restore uses the same version of iPod software. Restore 2 uses the same iPod software though an update is available. Restore 3 puts the newest version of iPod Shuffle software on your device. And restore 4 installs the latest version of software and updates the device.
  4. Keep the iPod connected throughout the restore process.
  5. Name your iPod after the restore is complete and sync your library with it again if you so choose.

Power up your pod by holding the Power Key
1) it will show the USB pin and CD on the screen of your Itouch
2) install Itunes in your PC or MAC
3) Connect you Itouch and it will sync itself and ma takes time to add songs in your itune library

IPod - 3 years old -- will not upload current Itunes Library


maybe you can try reformatting the ipod so that all the songs will be removed... try also to click on "music" when you connect to your pc, highlight the songs you don't like anymore and right click then choose delete... it works with my ipod :)
