Itunes restore 160gb


If it is an Apple 160GB. You can plug it into your iTunes account. On the left hand side it should come up under devices. Click on it and it will show your device on the screen with a tab saying "Restore" Click this and it will take you through the restore process make sure you know your computer password, it will ask for it. It will take you through resetting up your iTunes library back onto the iPod.

Hi, i have a 160gb ipod classic, it doesnt turn anymore, and when i plug it into power or itunes the "charging please wait" comes up but it stays stuck on like that, i have tried restarting it and itunes...


Not sure what you meant by "restarted" but sometimes it takes "resetting" the ipod by plugging the cable into a reliable power source and then holding down both the menu and select (center circle) buttons for more than 5 seconds.

I have an ipod classic 160Gb it is really slow, when I press any of the keys it takes ages to respond. sometimes it takes about 5 seconds to get back to the menu


Your iPod's disk is probably badly defragmented. This happens naturally with time; the files which contain your songs and videos are broken up in parts and located in various parts of the disk. Your iPod needs to search all over your disk to get file information, taking longer than it would if your files each were made up of one part.

To defragment your iPod's disk, do the following:

1) Make sure all your iPod's music and videos are also on your computer, and in iTunes.

2) Connect your iPod to your computer, and run iTunes.

3) Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button in the middle of iTunes.

4) Wait for your iPod to finish restoring, then click on the "Sync" button to copy all your songs and videos back to your iPod.

Have you gone through the Five Rs?

My Ipod Classic 160GB has no radio


The iPod Classic OS is same as the Nano. However, it looks to be so close as to come with the same settings checks off. The code to run the FM tuner is on the Classic and should have been disabled but Apple must have forgotten to turn it off.

The volume control is locked


The ONLY way to resolve this issue is to restore using iTunes. iTunes will restore the iPod. It is recommended to only have one iPod connected to one computer at a time. Also shairring your library should not cause the iTunes to not restore your iPod. If you are not wanting to restore the iPod due to not wanting to loose music, you will have to choose between unlocking the volume limit and keeping music.

Hi! YOu need to disconnect your ipod from the pc.
Put the ipod into diskmode by following these instructions-
Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.

After doing this open latest version of itunes and then restore your ipod to factory settings by selecting it from itunes.
