    My ipod stops syncing halfway through. It says that it cannot find the file. I don't understand why it's doing this. I reformatted, and it's still messed up.

    Help anyone?

Why wont i tunes recognize my i pod and sync my music to it

Your ipod may be corrupted and will need to be wiped and restored.
First of all try another lead to connect your ipod to pc.
Also look inside bottom of ipod to check no bent pins in ipod dock.
Also reinstall itunes incase of program corruption.
If still not working you will have to put ipod in disk mode.
Switch ipod off then switch hold button on and off then hold down centre putton and bottom pause button until TICK appears.You are in Disk mode.
Go to file explorer and right click your ipod if shown,Chose FORMAT then chose restore device defaults and restore. Once formatted open itunes and connect ipod with good lead.Ipod can now be restored from backup or a clean restore can be done

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 30 gb

You'll need to reset and then resync the device. To do a reset you turn the lock on and then off and hold down the center select and menu buttons, at the same time, for five seconds until you see the Apple logo appear. Then, plug the unit into your computer and sync. In iTunes you'll want to choose to restore the unit. That will erase and then restore your syncronized data, as well as update the firmware.

Formatted the disk using WindowsXP. Not able to make it play

I would try restoring the iPod on iTunes. When you connect to iTunes, there should be an option to update/restore. I would try that, as it should make it work again.
