Ipod classic 7th generation won't sync


Step 1:
With iTunes software, iPod users can manage their media libraries, purchase or import new content and synchronize their devices. The software has a number of convenient features, one of which is AutoSync. This feature will cause your iPod to automatically synchronize with iTunes immediately upon connecting the device to your computer. You can also set up iTunes so that you can manually sync your iPod.

Press the "Shift" and "Ctrl" keys on your computer keyboard simultaneously while you connect your iPod to the computer using its USB cord. Mac users will press "CMD + Option" while you connect. Continue to keep the keys pressed down while you monitor the iTunes window. Keep the keys pressed until you notice that Auto-Sync has stopped and your iPod icon has appeared in the Source pane of iTunes. Be patient, as this could take between 5 and 30 seconds. Right-click on the icon for your iPod in the Source pane, and then select "iPod Options." Click to put a check mark in the "Manually manage songs and playlists" check box. This finishes your task and you can now manually synchronize your iPod whenever you wish by simply clicking on the "Sync" button.

Itunes freezing when ipod is connected


Need to reformat your ipod - don't disconnect the ipod until you hit eject - ever you should be able to use it again try a different cord and reformat then have fun cause you get to reload all the music unless you were able to save your iTunes library

My ipod classic 80Gb wont sync,starts to connect then ejects,tried all three ports????


Ok. This one is simple.If you are on a windows machine, try this artice
"http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538". And if you are on a Mac, then you're a little outta luck! The article mentioned above cannot be tried on a Mac. Use a PC to do this, even if you run a Mac. You can later format it to make it work with your Mac.
          If you feel lazy to look around for a PC, you can also try this aritcle: "http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363". It talks about forcing the iPod to something called Disk Mode. This MIGHT help you. 
If you feel lazier, then only a miracle can save your iPod! Just kidding ;)
