One the main screen, it request to be plugged into the comp to get restored. After the restoring process on itunes, itunes detects the ipod and says it need to be restored. I've done this several times.

some one told me they had this problem and they fixed it by formating the ipod.

i've tried that, at the end it says process could not be completed.

HOW TO FORMAT THE IPOD


Hi marksoncaran...

Since iPods are basically big hard drives with special software and a screen, the hard drive in your iPod needs to be formatted.
Formatting is essentially the process of prepping the drive to talk to the computer it connects to.
Luckily, you usually don't have to worry about formatting your iPod.
Formatting happens automatically when you first set up your iPod.
If you use your iPod with a Mac, during this process it becomes Mac formatted.
If you use it with Windows, it gets Windows formatting.

If you want to clear the hard drive...the way you will format it you will double left click on "My computer" when the window opens you will have to find your Ipod amonst the listings...right click on it and select "format"...the follow the instructions

Start by syncing your iPod with your computer. When you do this, the iPod management screen will appear. Midway down that screen there's a button that reads "Restore." Click the restore button. This begins the process of restoring the iPod to its factory settings. After you click the restore button, iTunes will ask you to confirm that you really want to do this. If your iPod content is backed up, go ahead. The iPod restore process includes iTunes downloading and installing iPod software and bug fixes. You will see a window that looks like this. Follow the onscreen instructions. On a Mac, you will be asked to enter your computer?s password. On Windows, the installation will just proceed. As iTunes restores the iPod, you will see a progress bar. After the restoration process has completed, iTunes will pop up a window letting you know that it?s done. Now you?ve got an empty, freshly formatted iPod. Now you can sync the iPod with your computer and download your iTunes library again.

You need to format the ipod like a harddrive. Right now it is probably in fat32 (32 meaning 32 bit = 4,000,000,000 bytes of data, or 4 gb.) Try reseting your ipod in itenes.

Check your video format and make sure it's compatible with the ipod.
you can get a converter that will convert your video file for use with the ipod.
Your ipod will play mp4 and H264 files with no problem

Just do a search for a "ipod video converter" on the net. You can download one free
by using a P2P client like ares Galaxy

30 GB ipod video


A good place to sell anything at all is on ebay, but I am recently learning about a site called craig's list. On there, it's all local people, and therefore shipping is not across country like ebay is, usually. Otherwise, you might just try getting the word out through a newspaper or through friends, or if you have any used electronics stores in town, they would probably buy it from you, but maybe not for as much as you'd like. Hope this helps!

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?


Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support
