Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

160 gb ipod problem

I was using it in my logitech stereo and I tried changing the song, but nothing happened. The screen changed, but it wasn't playing. It stayed at 0 time elapsed despite it saying it was playing in the upper right. After that it just went downhill, its responses got sluggish and eventually nonexistant. I managed to turn it off, but now it doesn't turn back on. The screen is black but I can hear the hard drive spinning or something in it, so it must not fully off. And it can't be good to be spinning for that long. If there is any way to fix this short of replacing it I'd appreciate any help. I had 10gigs or so of music on there that is no longer on our computer or in our house... :(

    I just looked back (I plugged it back into the stereo, though maybe I should let the battery empty) and it's a pure white screen now. wtf?

    Just showed it to my dad and he told me you could reset them. He looked it up and tried it out. Alakazam, music saved, crisis averted.

Have you tried turning the lock switch from locked to unlocked. There will be a little circular switch on the edge of the ipod that will appear red next to if it IS locked.

I have an early Ipod classic 60 gb that won't workwith my Alpine

Try looking in you itunes folder for a previous version of the software for your ipod if it worked before. The old copies are saved, unless you deleted those folders also. If you deleted them try searching the web for the old software.

Scratchy audio

If this happens only for one or two songs then its the audio file corrupt, else if it happens for all the songs then try another headset. Normally the ipod headsets gets worn out quickly.

160gb ipod wont load

Theres a few things you can do. Sounds like to me......1. remove ipod support and itunes and reinstall it. completely turn the computer off after each process. Then plug it in and let itunes recognize it, and see if it works. Before you do this try changing your settings. You can go and change settings to default. If that doesnt work COMPLETELY restore your ipod and reinstall ipod support and itunes and that will work for sure.
