I had the "Factory Diag Mode" and was dismayed that I could not find a solution in any of my online searches. But I finally got it to work with only a minor side-effect, so I thought I'd share.

I originally tried the following from the "Live XM" mode:
Go settings, setup, restore defaults, restore setting only.

That didn't seem do anything for me. Then I tried the same thing from the "My Music" mode.
That fixed it!!!
The only thing that I noticed that I lost was my channel favorites (hardly a worry at all). All of my saved songs and playlists are still there!!!

Hopefully this will help a poor soul in need

Go settings, setup, restore defaults, restore setting only. Then let it sit connected to the antenna. Mine came back after a few minutes.

I have a gen 1 ipod touch which is disabled i have forgotten password and have a new computer with new verison of Itunes I have tried everything to enable ipod with no luck. Please help


Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to.

Hope this helps,
Rob

How to find the security code (4 digits)


To resolve this issue, you will need to restore your iPod to factory settings This means any data (music, movies, contacts, etc.) will be erased and the iPod brought back to it's factory settings (like the day you got it).
To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your iPod is disconnected and powered off. If it's not already, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" message is displayed and swipe to turn off.
2. Connect the USB end of the data cable to your computer, do not connect the other end just yet.
3. Connect the other end of the data cable to the iPod and immediately press down & hold the "Home" button.
4. Continue to hold down "Home" button , until the iTunes logo appears and the USB connection is displayed on the iPod's screen.
5. Open iTunes (if it hasn't opened automatically) and a message stating that it has found an iPod that is in recovery mode. (If you don't get this message and the iPod just boots like normal, then the timing between connecting the iPod and holding the home button wasn't fast enough. Try again from step #1).
6. Click the "Restore" button and iTunes will automatically download and install the latest iOS version for your iPod.
The process should take about 20-45 mins, depending on your internet connection. Once complete, the iPod will reboot and your iPod will be restored to factory settings.
Since iTunes requires that all data be synced through there, if you have made any backups to your iPod, you'll be able to re-sync your information back to your iPod at this time.

My Creative Zen Touch is frozen. When I hold down the "Menu" button, the screen does not change. When I connect to the computer and attempt to run Creative Mediasource Organizer, I get a message that the...


I would run the recovery console from the player itself. Make sure the Touch's power supply is plugged in (and unplugged from a PC) then to access the recovery mode of the Touch, hold down the Play/Pause button while inserting a straightened paper clip into the reset hole on your player, give it about five seconds then remove the paper clip.
Next, keep on holding the Play/Pause button until the Rescue Mode screen appears. After you see the rescue mode menu, you can release the play/pause button.
I would try a "clean up" first, as this is less intrusive and will not erase data.
